WATCH MOVEMENTS

WHAT IS A MOVEMENT?

A movement is what makes a watch “go.” Most watch companies purchase either the entire movement or parts of the movement from other companies. There are a handful of companies that are ‘vertically integrated’ and make their own movements without using any supplies from subcontractors. These companies are referred to as Manufactures, and the watches they make are typically more expensive and highly sought after because of their exclusivity.

MOVEMENT TYPES

Manual and automatic movements are mechanical; they are both made up of only mechanical parts like gears and springs. The quartz and auto-quartz movements have an electrical circuit and require a battery to run but may also have some mechanical parts. Mechanical watches are far more expensive than battery-powered ones because they are much more labor intensive to build. Even though battery watches are inherently more accurate, almost all collectors and connoisseurs prefer manual or automatic as these movements represent the accumulation of almost 600 years of refinement, expertise, and craftsmanship.

MANUAL MOVEMENT

A manual movement, frequently called a hand-wound movement, is the oldest type of watch movement made, dating back to the 16th century. It requires daily winding in order to work. Manual movements are the most traditional movements and are usually found in very conservative, expensive, and collectable watches.

Important aspects to consider before purchasing a manual watch:

  • Daily winding is required.
  • When winding a manual watch, it should be wound until there is a feeling of tension or tightness on the crown. If it is wound past this point, damage to the movement may occur.
  • Remove the watch from the wrist prior to winding or setting. Failure to do so will cause damage to the movement, crown, and stem.

Components of the manual movement:

Crown

The wheel on the side of the watch that is used to set time. It can also be turned to wind the watch to run.

Mainspring

The power source of the movement. The kinetic energy from winding the crown is transferred to the coil-shaped mainspring, which stores the energy by getting tighter and tighter.

Gear Train

Transmits the stored energy from the mainspring to the escapement through a series of small gears.

Escapement

Acts like a brake, taking the energy transmitted from the mainspring through the gear train and pushing it out into equal, regular parts.

Balance Wheel

The heart of the movement, receiving the energy to run from the escapement. The balance wheel beats, or oscillates, in a circular motion between five and ten times per second. A watchmaker can make the balance wheel oscillate faster or slower, which in turn makes the watch run faster or slower.

Dial Train

Another series of gears that transmit the regulated, equally metered energy from the balance wheel to the hands of the watch, making them move.

Jewels

Synthetic rubies that are set at points of high friction, like the center of a gear that is constantly in motion. Used as bearings to reduce metal-to-metal friction and wear, they improve performance and accuracy. Rubies are used because they absorb heat well and are extremely hard.

How manual movements work:

1. Turning the crown winds the mainspring, causing it to store energy.
2. The gear train transfers the energy to the escapement.
3. The escapement meters out the energy into regulated parts.
4. The balance wheel uses this regulated energy to beat back and forth at a constant rate.
5. Every certain number of beats, the dial train transfers the energy to the hands of the watch.
6. The hands advance.

AUTOMATIC MOVEMENT

An automatic, or self-winding, movement is a mechanical movement first marketed in the beginning decades of the 20th century. It winds itself while worn on the wrist, eliminating the need for daily hand winding. However, if not worn for some time, the watch will stop and require a manual winding. This does not include taking the watch off before bed.

Components of the automatic movement:

Crown

The wheel on the side of the watch that is used to set time. It can also be turned to wind the watch to run.

Mainspring

The power source of the movement. The kinetic energy from winding the crown is transferred to the coil-shaped mainspring, which stores the energy by getting tighter and tighter.

Gear Train

Transmits the stored energy from the mainspring to the escapement through a series of small gears.

Escapement

Acts like a brake, taking the energy transmitted from the mainspring through the gear train and pushing it out into equal, regular parts.

Balance Wheel

The heart of the movement, receiving the energy to run from the escapement. The balance wheel beats, or oscillates, in a circular motion between five and ten times per second. A watchmaker can make the balance wheel oscillate faster or slower, which in turn makes the watch run faster or slower.

Dial Train

Another series of gears that transmit the regulated, equally metered energy from the balance wheel to the hands of the watch, making them move.

Jewels

Synthetic rubies that are set at points of high friction, like the center of a gear that is constantly in motion. Used as bearings to reduce metal-to-metal friction and wear, they improve performance and accuracy. Rubies are used because they absorb heat well and are extremely hard.

Rotor

A half circle-shaped metal weight attached to the movement that can swing freely in 360 degrees as the wrist moves. The rotor is connected by a series of gears to the mainspring and as it turns, it winds the mainspring, giving the watch energy. The rotor is equipped with a clutch that will disengage it from winding when the mainspring is fully wound.

How automatic movements work:

1. Movement of the wrist turns the rotor, which winds the mainspring. Turning the crown also winds the mainspring.
2. The gear train transfers the energy to the escapement.
3. The escapement meters out the energy into regulated parts.
4. The balance wheel uses this regulated energy to beat back and forth at a constant rate.
5. Every certain number of beats, the dial train transfers the energy to the hands of the watch.
6. The hands advance.

QUARTZ MOVEMENT

A quartz movement uses a battery for its power source and does not need winding like a mechanical watch. It is the most accurate type of movement currently being produced.

Components of the quartz movement:

Battery

Like the mainspring on a mechanical watch, this is the power source of the watch. Typically, the battery on a quartz watch will last between 12 and 24 months before needing to be replaced. It is important to replace the battery as quickly as possible once it has died as there is a possibility of it leaking acid and damaging the movement.

Integrated Circuit

This ‘carries’ the electrical charge between the various parts of the quartz movement.

Quartz Crystal

Performs the same function as the balance wheel on a mechanical watch. The Integrated circuit applies electricity from the battery to the quartz crystal in a constant stream. Quartz vibrates when electricity is applied to it and also generates voltage when it vibrates.

Stepping Motor

Transforms the electrical impulses into mechanical power.

Dial Train

Functions just like the dial train found on a mechanical movement.

How quartz movements work:

1. Electricity is carried from the battery to the quartz crystal via the integrated circuit.
2. The electricity makes the quartz crystal vibrate at a rate of 32,768 per second.
3. These electrical pulses are sent via the integrated circuit to the stepping motor.
4. The stepping motor sends every 32,768th electrical pulse to the dial train.
5. The dial train advances the hands on the watch.

Rolex GMT Master II Watches Collections

The Rolex GMT-Master II collection was introduced in 1983 and initially operated alongside the brand’s main GMT-Master collection. However, since the turn of the millennium, the GMT-Master II has replaced the original GMT-Master line as the manufacturer’s primary range of pilot’s watches.

Rolex designed the initial collection in collaboration with Pan American Airways, and the GMT-Master II is able to keep track of three time zones at once, thanks to its quick-set hour hand, 24-hour GMT hand, and rotatable bezel. The collection has also expanded significantly over the years, with new materials and designs.

As a result of this expansion, buyers have a wide range of options to choose from, and the GMT-Master II is recognized for being one of Rolex’s most versatile models. This buying guide aims to help customers understand the different models within the collection, their differences, and the various options that exist for customization.

The full rose gold GMT-Master II is a brand new model, introduced in 2018, and it is already attracting significant attention from buyers. As it is slightly more understated than the full yellow gold option, it serves as an ideal choice for those looking for something luxurious, but without too much of a flashy appearance.

As with some of the two-tone rose gold and steel models, the full rose gold GMT-Master II makes use of a black and brown bi-color bezel, which has been nicknamed ‘Root Beer’. This color scheme fits perfectly with the rose gold case and bracelet, providing an aesthetic reminiscent of some of the older GMT-Master models from the 1970s.

A full rose gold model is roughly twice as expensive as the two-tone rose gold and steel models, making this category among the most expensive of all of the available options.

For those seeking a GMT-Master II model with an added sense of luxury, one of the gold and steel two-tone ‘Rolesor’ models may be the perfect choice. To provide some perspective, these models are sold at a similar price point to the ‘Batman’ timepieces, meaning they are more valuable than standard steel models.

Initially, all of these two-tone GMT-Master II models combined 18k yellow gold and stainless steel with a black ceramic dial. However, in more recent times, the brand has added the option of 18k rose gold and stainless steel watches, with either a black ceramic dial, or a black and brown ‘Root Beer’ ceramic bezel.

Due to the fact that the rose gold and steel models are very new, and rarer than the yellow gold and steel versions, they have a higher price point and retain a greater sense of exclusivity.

Those looking for a model with a bi-color bezel may also wish to consider the GMT-Master II ‘Pepsi’ timepieces, which have a red and blue bezel. These are not as popular as other models in the collection, partly because Rolex produces some of the ‘Pepsi’ models in white gold, which makes them a more expensive option.

With that being said, the ‘Pepsi’ design is the only white gold GMT-Master II in production, giving it a sense of exclusivity. Additionally, the newest red and blue model is constructed from stainless steel, and has a Jubilee bracelet, which is absolutely unique among GMT-Master II watches.

When it comes to the most popular and desirable GMT-Master II models, the reference 116710BLNR is a logical place to start. The timepiece was introduced in 2013 and features a bi-color bezel, with black on one half and blue on the other. This color scheme earned the watch the nickname ‘Batman’.

This model re-introduced bi-color bezels to the GMT-Master collection, after they had been absent since the launch of the GMT-Master II range. It is extremely popular and difficult to purchase. For this reason, grey market prices are higher than at authorized dealers, but the advantage is that you do not have to wait years to get it.

Stainless steel Rolex GMT-Master II models with a black dial and a black ceramic bezel are the cheapest timepieces in the collection, making them a popular entry-level option. In addition, their classic aesthetic helps to provide an understated quality, which is suitable for almost all tastes and settings.

The black dial contrasts strongly with the hands and dial markers, offering excellent legibility, and the simplistic color scheme means the watch works well with most outfits.

Nevertheless, it is important to be aware that there are other, more interesting models available with a black dial, and buyers may wish to consider some of these before making their final decision.

Finally, the GMT-Master II is also available in full yellow gold, which is an ideal option for those wishing to purchase a tool watch with a real sense of luxury and status. Within this category, there are further decisions to be made related to both the dial color and the bezel.

The most common full yellow gold model comes with a black ceramic bezel and a black dial, but an alternative option has a green dial, which stands out much more. It is, therefore, a great option for buyers looking to purchase a timepiece that really catches the eye and makes a bold statement.

Customers wishing to go a step further still will be interested to know that there is also a yellow gold GMT-Master II model that comes with a ruby, sapphire and diamond set bezel. This is, by some distance, the most expensive yellow gold model in the current GMT-Master II collection and is ideal for those seeking true extravagance.

New 2019 – Konstantin Chaykin Replica Joker Watch For Sale

New 2019 Russian Horological Humour with the Konstantin Chaykin Joker Replica Watch

Russian Horological Humour with the Konstantin Chaykin Joker. A comical face that tells the time as well as the phase of the moon. The point of the watch isn’t just to remind watch collectors of the Joker character, but to use his theme in order to present a timepiece with a “face” that has about 20,000 distinct “facial expressions.”

The Joker wristwatch has a regulator-style dial that resembles a jester’s face. The time displayed on separate sub-dials that form of the eyes of the clown. A moon phase display takes the form of a grinning, open mouth at six o’clock. As the time and age of the moon progresses, the expression of the jester changes.

The face of the watch is decorated with two guilloche patterns, a wavy, radial motif on the silver-plated dial, and a hobnail pattern on the ruthenium-plated nose. 

 

The deeply etched time-setting crown displays Chaykin’s eagle-meets-K logo. It is located directly across from other “ear” on the face, a false crown that incorporates a pusher for the moon phase adjustment.

 

Visual interest: laser-engraved case back of the Konstantin Chaykin Joker
