Swatch Group Watchmaker John Teifert To Lecture On A Critical Skill Needed For Accuracy, At The Horological Society Of New York
The picture above shows a tourbillon pen and equilibrium in a balancing apparatus. The thought is to ensure there are no weighty spots or light spots anyplace and you do this by changing the situation of the equilibrium turns on the ruby edges of the apparatus, and seeing whether they roll. Static balancing is finished with the equilibrium alone. When an equilibrium spring is joined and the equilibrium set in the watch, notwithstanding, dynamic balancing must be done, which includes timing the watch in various positions and re-balancing the equilibrium (typically by eliminating exact moment measures of material where important) to consider the consequences for its balance because of the impacts of the equilibrium spring wavering. It’s a requesting activity, yet fundamental to get the best presentation from a high accuracy watch.
We trust you’ll go along with us to hear more about this generally mostly secret strategy – one that is imperative in accuracy horology.
