______Description of Movement ND 01s
Two years would have been necessary for the conception, development and creation of my own movement. The mechanical hand winding Caliber ND01s indicates the hours and minutes in the centre with a subdial at 6 o’clock. The total diameter is of 28mm with a total thickness not exceeding 4.4mm.
Calibre ND01s possesses a power reserve of 72 hours (barrel and hidden ratchet “wolf teeth” system). Calibre ND01s runs at 18’000 vibrations/hour oscillating screw balance, spiral Breguet. The whole system is coupled with a timing system possessing a cam index.
All geartrains are chamfered by hand and circular grained following typical horological tradition. Each ruby, dome faced , is fixed in a setting maintained by 3 screws. The movement has a total of 22 rubies.
All steels parts of the movement are mirror polished and chamfered on their side. All bars and sinks are chamfered by hand. The plate is also of an outstanding level finish: chamfered by hand, small circular graining under the balance, visible sanded part on the movement side and circular graining of the recess on the dial side. All screw slots, without exception, are chamfered by hand and then mirror polished.
Each movement has a plate with its number. This number corresponds to the one on the watch case.
The whole movement is governed by the Maker’s Mark, the latter being affixed on the bridge of the barrel. The Maker’s Mark shows impeccable quality in terms of technique and aesthetic.
