Rolex watch craft - balance pendulum

Known as the precise performance of the rolex uk, equipped with gossamer and balance balance wheel these two inseparable components. However, these two important devices combined with the Chronoswiss replica watches degree of attention is very different, and eyes fell above the gossamer. Often forget the rhythm of this fine gossamer is constant and accurate, thanks to the balance of the balance wheel produced by the inertia effect (inertiaeffect). Moreover, this neglected balance wheel can effectively ensure the balance of the swing components of the regularity, so balance the balance wheel of the importance and technical, no less than the famous slim hair less. In 1957, Rolex created an important balance wheel design, so that the movement rate can be adjusted, the brand in the precise timing has made significant progress, and to consolidate the world's best watchmakers reputation. Rolex engineers for the fine-tuning balance wheel inertia effect of the system of innovation and improvement, creating a star-like fine-tuning screws (Microstella screws), greatly improve the accuracy of the watch. This Rolex proprietary device, still installed in the brand of movement, the only difference is now made of gold nuts. One or two pairs of fine symmetrical star-shaped fine-tuning nuts are screwed into the inside of the balance wheel (technically called the wheel), which is about 1 centimeter in diameter. The watchmaker will use the Rolex special tool, gently tighten or loosen the nut (must also rotate the two nuts at the same time to maintain balance), adjust the balance of the balance wheel inertia and rhythm, so as to correct the accuracy of the swing degree. Watchmakers can also be customized watch, according to the various conditions of wear balance balance wheel. \ Venus design To understand how this device works, imagine the rotation of the fancy skater: to increase the speed of rotation, his arms will be inward to reduce inertia; to slow down, he will arm stretched out. In 1958, Rolex founder Hans Wilsdorf (Hans Wilsdorf) pointed out that the new balance wheel and star-shaped fine screw on the future development of the importance of the brand. "We have to adopt a new 'Microstella' movement, which helps to consolidate our leadership!" The fact that we have to adopt a new 'Microstella' movement, "he wrote in a letter, , He is very keen on the invention, he was once as a selling point, carrying a new 1560 movement watch cover engraved "Microstella adjustment" (fine tune) words. Important component Rolex developed a balanced balance wheel and star-shaped fine-tuning nut, combined with the two major watch the way the advantages of adjustment, one is equipped with balance screw balance wheel, the second is used as a tool for the spinner. The former according to the same principle to ensure high accuracy (placed in the circle around the wheel can adjust the rotation inertia), but the disadvantage is that once installed in the movement, it can not adjust the balance swing components function. And the latter is more widely used by the trimming device for adjustment, and can be adjusted in situ balance swing components, however, this method is less accurate, and even eventually make the device becomes less stable. The clever of the nut is that it can effectively improve the variable inertia of the adjustment screw and the balance wheel so that the watchmaker can precisely adjust the balance wheel that has been fixed in the movement housing. While the star design of the nut will help in any position can be tightened fine-tuning. \ The slightest deviation However, Rolex balance wheel combines the technology and complexity, far more than Venus design. The rings made up of wheels and wheels are made of Glucydur, which has a paramagnetic and low thermal expansion coefficient that allows accurate operation of the balance wheel to be disturbed by magnetic fields. Due to changes in temperature caused by metal expansion or contraction of the impact, you can change through the characteristics of hairspring to offset. In the Bienne watchmaking factory, the balance wheel is made of solid rod material, making sure that the balance wheel is installed in the center of the movement to achieve a perfect balance, the manufacturing deviation of +/- 2 microns, or two thousandths Mm. The components are in strict accordance with the quality of Rolex production. Just as a vessel, it is not easy to deviate from the route once it is sailed, and the Rolex balance wheel has a high inertia factor (radius square multiplied by mass), which depends on the clever optimization of the design, reducing all external disturbances, Time to maintain the desired accuracy. Watch factory homemade In addition, the balance wheel is equipped with a very small shaft, so that it is fixed on the device, this component also need to use special technology can be made. In order to reduce the friction and try to balance the balance wheel and gossamer free vibration, the end of the balance wheel (pivot) must be very fine. The diameter of the pivot is only 0.07 mm (or 70 microns), equivalent to the diameter of human hair. In order to strengthen the durability, gossamer will be "rolled up", and the key process must have a special knowledge and technology. Made by the Rolex hairspring, balance the balance of the various components, pivot gem, fixed components of the Paraflex cushioning device, and the most important lubricant, are fully grasp the movement of all the elements of accurate and reliable, and this is Is the Rolex movement can enjoy the prestigious foundation.
