What is the vortex on a mechanical watch? Page: 1

cyclone Is a clock complication whose main purpose is to reduce the effect of gravity on an operation.Mechanical watchPage: 1 By reducing the influence of gravity on the movement of the mechanical watch, the mechanical watch becomes more accurate.

The historic turn of the first whirlwind:

LecycloneWhen did this happen Abraham Louis breigerBy the end of 18third Mechanical watches in this century are always advanced or backward.

This is because GravityPage: 1 In fact, at that time, the watch was a small watch that went through a pocket, so it was always in a vertical position. Therefore, due to the influence of gravity, the balancer and helix, also known as a clock regulator, are more attractive to the ground, and the oscillation performed by the balancer is no longer stable.

first cyclone Abraham Louis breigett's idea was to allow balance not just in a vertical position, but in 360 degrees, which would counteract gravity. He first applied for a patent in 1801 cyclone But this technological achievement can only be shown to the public since 1806

Now the whirlwind

since Eddy current in mechanical watchAt the end of the 20th century, the bell tower continued to revive and improve.third This century, it was determined that a cyclone would be more effective if it was tilted 30 degrees, and then the whirlwind began to rotate three axes, just like the jagglecoot rotation.

It should be noted that with the advent of watches in the early 20'sthirdThe necessity of the century cyclone For the sake of accuracy, it's not so obvious now. In fact, when the watch is held on the wrist, it is never in the same position, so the effect of gravity is naturally compensated.
