DECORS GUILLOCHÉS

Guilloché art incarnates the quest for beautiful things and accomplishing aesthetics. Its added value might be that it is one of few watchmaking activities not to serve a functional purpose.
EPHJ 2015. Half way between engraving and sculpting, this art dates back to the 16th century. It consists of decorating with engraved features that are sculpted in intaglio and crisscrossed. Yann von Kaenel, guardian of these skills, states: “The image of guilloché art is man himself”.

BULOVA THERMATRON

At the Basel fair in 1980, Bulova introduced a prototype of the THERMATRON. It was a revolutionary watch that used body heat from the wrist to charge the battery that supplied the quartz movement with energy.
The American manufacture Bulova was founded in 1875 by the late Joseph Bulova (1851-1936). At a time when Swiss manufactures were bearing the brunt of Asian quartz watches, the brand introduced this avant-garde and ecological watch which did not use...

This is the smallest part that we produce at NOMOS Glashütte: The pinion for the pallet wheel, which is so small that watchmakers have to hold their breath while they are working with it. These three pinions could almost fit into the grooves of a fingertip. And what does the pallet wheel need these tiny parts for? You can find out here: http://bit.ly/1Cddc5x

Asking many watchmakers what they think about quartz is like asking a die-hard American conservative what they think about government regulation. There is a visceral hatred of this technology that was both so much more accurate and so much cheaper than mechanical movements. It very ;nearly turned Swiss watchmaking into American watchmaking (that is to say, obsolete.) This disdain has led to ;some amazing ;innovations, and some incredible oddball ...

Dear friends,
 We had some nice and convenient email conversations with a friend who is now the owner of Nemo Sailor N° 10 of 25
Here is the finale and in my eyes most important part of the conversation:
 
"... its here now and unbelievably amazing! Thanks to you and Thomas,

Best regards
Thomas and Heike
