At the upcoming Basel Jewellery and Watch Fair, Glashütte presents the PanoMaticlnverse, a watch with a large inverted calendar, presenting a double gooseneck trimmer on the dial, such as a beautiful butterfly stop Stay in the movement. In this issue, you will experience the practicality and beauty of the double gooseneck trimmer.
The PanoMaticInverse, a watch with a large inverted calendar, which will be available for the first time at Baselworld 2014, will further develop this design concept. The new 91-02 automatic winding movement has a 42-hour power reserve. On the 42mm dial, the hours, minutes and seconds are on the left, and Glashütte’s original patented large calendar display is in the upper right corner. Its elegance is that three-quarters of the rhodium-plated plywood is decorated with Glashütte original classic ribs, blue steel screws, ruby bearings, blue steel hands with luminous coating, elegant large calendar, and of course, the perfect double Gooseneck trimmer.
If the balance wheel and hairspring are the heart of the watch, then the spinner is the master of the number of heart beats. It is not only the most critical part of the movement, but also the important factor that determines the accuracy and stability of a watch. The clock materials used in the past are not as developed as they are now. Due to the uneven power output of the mainspring, the accuracy of the travel time is greatly affected, and the materials used are subject to changes caused by temperature differences. Can change the length of the hairspring movement, change the swing period of the balance wheel so as to achieve accurate travel time.
The design of the spinner is varied, simple or complicated, practical, extravagant, or meticulously carved. No matter how it changes, there are only two types of hair adjustment: the balance spring and the balance wheel. In the device for adjusting the hairspring, the double gooseneck fine-tuning device is one of them.
The double gooseneck fine-tuning device is often mistaken for a ‘tourbillon’, but if you look closely, you can see the difference between the two. Just as Glashütte’s original double gooseneck trimmer is hailed as the most beautiful double gooseneck trimmer, with the balance wheel bearing as the center point, the left and right hand-polished gooseneck trimmer layout is symmetrical, with gold and silver staggered hand-carved hairspring pendulum. The wheel plywood is like a beautiful butterfly staying in the movement.
Double Gooseneck Spinner ‘Practical’
The principle of the gooseneck spinner is based on the fast and slow needles. A curved hook-shaped steel sheet is added to the outside of the fast and slow needles. One end is fixed to the balance plate and the other is used to press the side ends of the fast and slow needles. The curved hook-shaped steel sheet is elastic, and one screw fixed on the side of the balance wheel clamp plate is used to adjust the fast and slow needles, so the fast and slow needles are controlled and the randomness is reduced. At the same time, the gooseneck is also a restricting mechanism, which prevents the fast and slow needles from moving on their own, which improves the accuracy and stability of the travel time. It is called ‘reliability’, which is commonly known by Glashütte and Lange.
Double Gooseneck Spinner ‘Ornamental’
The development of the gooseneck trimmer to the present has greatly exceeded its practical scope, which can be seen from the German watch. The gooseneck trimming in the German watch can be used to adjust the accuracy of the travel time, but also has a high degree of viewing. It is beautiful and generous with the unique three-quarter plywood of the German watch. In addition, high-quality artificial sanding and polishing, and the processing of chamfering edges are as smooth as mirrors. This is not the end. The balance splint under the gooseneck is manually carved with various delicate and changeable patterns, patterns, and gold plating. Processing enhances the visual effect and is beautiful. Glashütte’s Cal.9002 movement uses double gooseneck fine-tuning, which is more beautiful in shape, which is called ‘viewing type’.
