control the torque.!!!

Postby koimaster » October 9th 2018, 3:45pm

hello~~ everybody.~~

i have something(idea) to share with people who like the watch.

actually i have a idea, but i am not sure that is good or bad.

there is nobody who i can ask......

at first i am sorry that my bad English.




the idea is the way to control the torque.

there is watch that has long power reserve. 7days, 10days, or 30day.....

long power reserve watch has big and strong main spring(barrel).

sometimes strong barrel make the problem. ---- knocking and no stable(isochronizm).......




so i think the system to control the torque. i mean....

if the torque is too high(fully winded), make it decrease(the torque).

when the torque is getting low, make it increase(the torque).




i am not good at English. so let me explain by drawing......



for example, there is 100days power reserve watch. you can see the drawing, and there is power reserve indicator.

In theory, a watch with such a power reserve is not something impossible to build. In practice, it would either have to be a pocket watch, or a desk clock.

This guy's concept of a single, big mainspring barrel is absolutely off the trolley. Now, that's because there would be little space for a properly sized balance, and it'd be days and days before the power reserve is depleted, and the watch would suffer from a massive loss in accuracy. Over such a long period of time, it may be that the average accuracy would not be so dreadful, but likely far from the COSC-spec -4/+6 spd. Likely - and unfortunately - this would really be just the midpoint between an acceptable accuracy with the mainspring fully wound, and an absolutely dreadful one close the point of power reserve being depleted.

The only solution would be a number of bloody big barrels coupled, but that would make the whole thing big to the point of it being unwearable. Whoblow tried that with the LaFerrari watch, and they managed to squeeze 50 days of power reserve out of it, using...11 mainspring barrels.

But there is one more point, and perhaps the most important one - who the fuck would ever need that sort of power reserve? Some really lazy tosser, who really can't fucking bother to wind a watch?
