What are the main parts inside the watch movement

There are five main operating parts inside the movement of the watch, such as Center Wheel, Third Wheel, Fourth Wheel, Pallet Fork, and Escape Wheel. They are all indispensable, and each is an important support point that enables the watch to function and travel properly. You know what they do, let’s take a look at what they do inside the watch movement.

Mechanical Watch  | Free Shipping Worldwide | Wishdoit watches

Center Wheel

The center wheel is appropriately named as it usually is in the center of the movement. It is driven by the barrel and rotates once per hour. On the dial side of the movement, the minutes hand is attached to the center wheel via the cannon pinion.

Mechanical Watch  | Free Shipping Worldwide | Wishdoit watches

Third Wheel

The third wheel sits in between the center and fourth wheels. It makes possible the large increasing gear ratio of 1 to 60 when considering the rotational speed of the center and fourth wheels.

Fourth Wheel

The fourth wheel rotates once per minute. In movements that display seconds in a sub-dial, the seconds hand is attached directly to the extended fourth wheel pivot on the dial side.

Pallet Fork

The pallet fork is one part of the device known as the escapement. The pallets on the pallet fork interact with the escape wheel and cause the pallet fork to move back and forth. This motion gives energy to the balance wheel, causing it to oscillate.

Escape Wheel

The escape wheel is one part of the device known as the escapement. The club-shaped teeth on the escape wheel interact with the pallet fork to translate rotational motion into lateral impulses.

What is the point of Watch Hairspring?

A balance spring, or hairspring, is a spring attached to the balance wheel in mechanical timepieces. It causes the balance wheel to oscillate with a resonant frequency when the watch is running, which controls the speed at which the wheels of the watch turn, thus the rate of movement of the hands.

Men’s watches | Free Shipping Worldwide | Wishdoit watches

In other words, the hairspring provides restoring force to the balance wheel, enabling isochronal oscillations. It is a flat spiral spring that breathes at each vibration of the balance wheel. The spring itself was originally made from steel or gold, and today is made from temperature resistant alloys or silicon.

The hairspring and balance wheel together are the regulating organ of the mechanical watch. This harmonic oscillator is very resistant to outside disturbances, which makes it especially suited to keeping track of time. The balance wheel and hairspring is very similar to the pendulum in a clock. The major difference is that the balance wheel and hairspring are portable, while the pendulum is not.What does a hairspring do in a watch?The hairspring is what makes your watch tick — also, sometimes it’s referred to as a balance spring. Either way, it’s a flat coiled spring, usually made of metal, that’s attached to the balance wheel.

how to make a watch?

There are several steps in the watch manufacturing process, such as burnishing
, electroplating, numerical control, etc. Do you know what these steps are? Let me introduce them to you one by one.

Burnishing

Burnishing is a process that work-hardens a metal surface. It is often used on pivots to increase their durability and reduce friction.

CNC

CNC (Computer Numerical Control) is a method of controlling machining equipment (mills, lathes) with a computer. This allows for higher repeatable precision, as a human operator is not needed, except to start the job and monitor progress. CNC enables modern watch brands to produce large series of complex and precise movements that would have previously been very labor intensive.

DRIE

Deep reactive-ion etching is a fabrication process used to create parts from silicon wafers. Through lithography, a mask is made that determines the outlines of the part shapes on the silicon wafer. The wafer is then plasma etched. DRIE was originally developed for MEMS devices (the accelerometer in your smart phone is one) but recently has begun being used for horological applications due to its precision and the material properties of silicon.

Electroplating

Electroplating uses electrical current to deposit a thin layer of metal onto a workpiece. In a watch, this is done for both aesthetic and functional reasons.

Riveting

Riveting is a method of attaching two metal workpieces in a permanent fashion. In a watch movement, wheels and pinions are riveted together.

Milling

Milling is the process of cutting metal using a mill. A mill holds the workpiece still and uses a rotating cutting tool, called an end-mill.

Turning

Turning is the process of cutting metal using a lathe. A lathe rotates the workpiece rather than the cutting tool.

Tempering

Tempering is the process of slowly softening a metal by exposing it to heat. A byproduct of tempering is a layer of oxidation on the workpiece. This produces the blue color often seen on watch screws.

The Story of Me and the Watch – Khaki Airways

The Story of Me and the Watch – Khaki Airways

Let me share with you the story of my own favorite watch. This Hamilton is my favorite one. When I have nothing to do, I watch the macro videos on YouTube. The dial and hands of this watch are very delicate, but I forgot when I actually bought it, so I bought the one below. This, I also like this watch very much. I will definitely grab it next time when I have a chance, buy it again, and put together a series.

Mens Luxury tonneau mechanical Watch | Wishdoit Watches

I checked the name of this khaki aviation. I don’t know what model it is. The h31 movement is the 7753 with a 60-hour power reserve. I also have the 7753 movement. I actually feel that the eta should be fully mechanized production, but the movement is indeed more and more getting worse. This watch has an error of 18 seconds, but it is stable, the timing is the same on and off, so I keep it on

The photos taken by the fruit phone are close to the primary color. The radiating face plate of slightly silvery yellow is warm like the sun is about to rise. This should be put on labor. What kind of rock candy is it? It’s icy blue, and it’s icy yellow. It has a taste, and the retro taste of the eyes is stronger. The circle pattern of the flight instrument on the small faceplate also has radial reflections. The design is full of sense. What is even more beautiful is the pointer and the luminous coating. This black frame covers the milk tea color with luminous retro flavor , I was fascinated by this old church needle when I started it at that time.

What is Winding Stem?

What is Winding Stem?

The winding stem is the interface between the exterior and interior of a watch. Manipulation of the winding stem by turning, pulling, and pushing the crown winds and sets the mechanical movement. One end of the winding stem is threaded, where the crown is attached. The threaded side is cut to length depending on the size of the case. The other side of the winding stem has a square, which interfaces with the winding and setting mechanisms in the movement. The pivot on the end of the square steadies the winding stem as it turns.

Manufacturing of the winding stem by hand is often a micro-mechanics exercise that watchmaking students work on.

Do you know the Dual Time?

Do you know the Dual Time?

A dual-time watch has two hour hands in order to indicate time in two different time zones. This complication is popular with travelers, as it allows the wearer to set a “home” time zone for quick reference. The second hour hand is sometimes referred to as the GMT or UTC hand. The second hour hand usually indicates 24 hours instead of the standard 12. This allows the wearer to reference a time zone that is more than 12 hours difference from the home time zone.

Men’s luxury watches | Tonneau watch | Wishdoit watches

To understand the mechanics of the dual-time complication one must first understand how the motion works function. The motion works are a reducing gear train, driven by the center wheel arbor rotating once per hour. The dial of a watch usually indicates 60 minutes and 12 hours. The cannon pinion is attached to the center wheel arbor, and drives the minute wheel at a ratio of 1:3. The minute wheel then drives the hour wheel at a ratio of 1:4. Combining these two ratios results in a ratio 1:12, which works perfectly for the hour hand. The hour hand is then attached to the hour wheel in order to indicate the hours as desired.

A dual-time watch is different from a standard hours and minutes watch in two ways.

First, the second hour hand must indicate 24 hours. To achieve this, two additional wheels are added to the motion works. A second minute wheel mounted co-axially drives a 24 hour wheel at a ratio of 1:8. Combining the 1:3 ratio of the cannon pinion to minute wheel, and 1:8 of the minute wheel to 24 hour wheel results in a ratio of 1:24, which works perfectly for the 24 hour hand. The second difference in a dual-time watch is that the primary hour hand must be independently adjustable in hour increments.The hour wheel has a post on which the hour hand is fit. This post has a star wheel on it’s outer edge with 12 teeth. Those teeth interface with a detent spring on the hour wheel, which allows it to be adjusted in 12 increments of one hour.

Why we’re adding some gems or Jewels to the inside of a tonneau watch

Wheels in a watch are constantly rotating while a watch is running. Wheels rotate on their pivots, which are thin posts on both ends of the pinion. This constant rotation causes friction, which in turn causes mechanical wear. To reduce friction and wear, the pivots rotate in synthetic sapphire jewels. Sapphire is used because of it’s hardness; only diamond is harder.

 

Men’s luxury watches | Tonneau watch | Wishdoit watches

Jewels are cylindrical, pierced with a hole on the flat sides. One flat side has a concave oil sink, designed to retain oil on the pivots. One jewel is pressure-fitted into the mainplate, and the other into the bridge.

Different pivot sizes mean each set of jewels needs a different diameter hole. A center wheel rotates once per hour and is subject to high torque levels. Because of this, the pivot diameter is large. A fourth wheel rotates once per minute and is subject to low torque levels. Because of this, a small pivot diameter is used.

Shock-protecting jewel arrangements are used for balance wheels. Balance wheels have very thin pivots due to their oscillation speed. They are also very heavy, leading to increased stress on the balance pivots in the event of a shock. Shock-protecting jewels have a cap jewel mounted on a small spring to absorb the energy of any shock and protect the balance wheel pivots. Before the invention of shock-protecting jewels, broken balance staffs were a very common watch problem.

Before the use of jewels, mainplates and bridges were pierced directly. Without the use of jewels, the entire mainplate or bridge would have to be replaced when the pivot eventually caused mechanical wear. An improvement was to use bushings, which were easily replaceable, unlike the mainplate or bridge.

When first introduced, jewels were natural sapphire. Today, synthetic sapphire is used. Synthetic sapphire has the advantage of being less prone to cracking. It is also much cheaper to source and produce.

How to maintain the mechanical watch movement

Watches are one of the indispensable tools in our lives, and many people have the habit of wearing them for travel. Among the watches, the most valuable ones are mechanical watches. Mechanical watches are more careful in use than quartz watches, especially the movement of mechanical watches. Today, the watch house will introduce to you how to maintain the mechanical watch movement!

Wear it normally, avoid vibration

Appropriate amount of activity can make it continue to wind up and run normally (the wearer may walk slowly when the activity is small, which is a normal phenomenon.
When using for the first time, please rotate the crown 20-30 times to make the mainspring initially wound). Although the watch is shockproof, the tip of the pendulum shaft or the journal of the gear train may be easily broken when the external impact force is strong, and the speed needle may also vibrate. Affect travel time. Within the scope of economic capacity, you may wish to replace two or three watches in daily life: wear a mechanical watch when you are statically active, and wear a quartz watch when you are engaged in sports.

Prevent magnetization

Although the watch is made of non-magnetic material that is not easy to be magnetized, it is greatly affected by the magnetic field, such as the magnetic buckle on the TV, radio speakers, backpack or leather bag.

Waterproof watch

Please try not to take the watch to swim or wash clothes. Once it gets wet or wet in the rain, you cannot pull out the crown to adjust the watch at this time, but wipe it dry immediately. The sea water is also untouchable.
Even if the waterproof watch is marked, it can only have a one-year waterproof guarantee, because the waterproof ring of the watch will be worn out after a whole year of wear and tear, plus various unavoidable external factors such as sweat and dust, it will definitely be tired, so after a year It must be replaced with a new waterproof ring, otherwise it will not have waterproof function. Since the crown head is relatively protruding, try to avoid it from being bumped. Also, pay attention to the gap between the crown head and the case. If it is too small, it will affect the operation, and if it is too large, it will affect the waterproof performance, and it is not beautiful at the same time.

Watch cleaning

Generally speaking, 3 to 5 years of oil washing is determined by the following factors: ①The sealing problem of the watch ②The wearing degree of the watch (the degree of wear) ③The quartz watch can prolong the washing cycle ④The men’s watch or pocket watch can be thinner Or the oil-washing cycle of women’s watches is long.

Long-term non-use of the watch

If it is not placed in a suitcase with mothballs and sanitary balls, it will deteriorate the oil of the watch and make the watch machine inaccurate. It is wound or worn every month to ensure flexible internal activities.

Several watch common sense you must know

Several watch common sense you must know

Why do rust spots sometimes appear on all-steel cases?

Under normal circumstances, all-steel watches will not rust, but everything is relative. There are many types of stainless steel. The sweat excreted by the human body contains hydrochloric acid. If the watch is worn on the hand, if it is eroded by sweat for a long time or the acid, alkali and salt dirt is allowed to accumulate without being wiped off, rust spots will gradually appear on the watch case, especially in the low recesses of the back cover. comes out often. Therefore, you should pay attention to the maintenance of the watch at ordinary times, and often wipe off the dust accumulation, sweat, etc. on the case. In addition, you should try to avoid wearing the watch in strong acid, strong alkali and other occasions, so that there will be no rust spots on the all-steel case.

What is the power source of a fully automatic mechanical watch?

It mainly comes from the wearer’s wrist movement. The flying weight of the watch swings when the owner is active, thereby winding the watch. Therefore, when the wearer does not do much activity or does not wear it for a long time, the string force will be insufficient or empty, causing the watch to run. Not allowed or stopped. The elderly and those who often sit in the office with little exercise are not suitable to wear such watches. In this case, the wearer is advised to manually wind the watch on a regular basis.

What is a “luminous meter”? How is it different from an electroluminescent meter

Wishdoit Watches Tonneau Watches

The so-called “luminous watch” refers to a watch in which the hands or nails are coated with fluorescent powder, and the hands or nails can be seen glowing in the dark. Another type of luminous watch that appeared in the mid-1990s was an electroluminescent watch that made the entire surface glow. The difference between the two is as follows: 1) The luminous meter emits light by absorbing natural light energy, while the electroluminescent meter relies on the electric energy of the battery to emit light. 2) The “luminescence” of the luminous meter can only be seen in dark places, while the electroluminescent meter can emit light at any time as long as the corresponding button is pressed. 3) The luminous time of the luminous watch is limited by the time and intensity of absorbing light, and the electroluminescence is limited by the battery power.

Is a watch with more functions better?

A watch has many functions, and its design is relatively complicated, but it does not mean that a watch with more functions is the best. Many expensive watches are often the simplest in design. A watch with fewer functions is more convenient to maintain and has a lower failure rate. It should be said that what suits you is the best. To measure a good watch, it depends on its movement, material, workmanship and design style.

How to choose a watch by appearance

  1. A watch glass should be clear, smooth, free of blisters, scratches and cracks, and should be closely matched with the case.
  1. The case should be uniform in color, without obvious scratches, defects and rust.
  2. The back cover of the watch is clearly marked, fits closely with the case, and the sealing ring must not be exposed.
  3. The three hands of hour, minute and second should be straight, and there should be appropriate gaps between the needle and the needle, between the needle and the dial surface, and between the needle and the watch glass.
  4. The dial surface should be clean, uniform in color, clear in trademark and scale, and even in graduation. Calendar characters are well positioned within the box. The digital display handwriting is clear and free of defects.
  5. The movement of the mechanical watch (back-through type or hollow type) has no plastic parts, and the oscillating weight rotates smoothly.
