Speed of automatic watch


Recommended Posts

The escapement is designed to run at a given speed   and everything is tuned to produce that speed. Trying to drive it beyond its mechanical limits will lead to breakage of the escapement parts lilkey the pallet and rollerjewels as they are rhe most fragile part of the escapement.

Hi WW. Nice to have you back. Would the watch run faster if the bph was higher ?

Can the speed of automatic watch be increased by 2.5times

Hi snigdha. What is your reasoning for wanting to do this ?

just modify the dial to go from 0 - 30 instead of 0 -

Unless anyone correct me, it must run faster.

Im starting to think a rather suspicious question. Snigdha please tell us more about yourself please 🤔

The basics are the design of the movement. All the gearing is calculated to give a set speed at the point of delivery (ie) the escapement and the balance. Lets say we double the strength of the mainsoring for example , all that would happen is that we would end up with  pile of scrap because the geairing and pivots cant stand the torque and it would only take one to break and the domino effect would ruin a good movement. Why. the gear train and pivots are again calculated to carry a given force. pushed too far = disaster.  Now letts imagine we hve a beefed up gear train, the weak point is then the escapement and either the pallet of balance packs in , again disasler. But if you redesign the gear train , alter the circumference and tooth count of the wheels tat would alter the speed but there must be a finite limit you can reach before the balance and pallet break down. so in order to double the speed you would need to redesign the watch from the bottom up . You need to source a movemnt with the required speed you want, that way you  know its designed to do the job and is comfortable running at the given speed.

The speed of a specific movement is integral to the design.

You can't take an 18,000 vph watch and cause it to run at 45,000 vph.

Tag apparently has one that runs at 1000Hz but at what point do you resort to atomic clocks?

Can you give anymore details or is it top secret  ?

Attach it to a rocket, they reach speeds of at least 7 miles per second. 

Rich what have you been reading ? Rockets and worm holes, are you studying space exploration and quantum physics mate 🥱

I have to say I'm still kind of suspicious 🤔

    • Plastic crystals have a lot of stress and this will eventually show up as a lot of hairline fractures on the crystal. If you are saying you want to save the original I would recommend not bothering they are considered consumables. Get an original crystal installed by a proffessional is the best route. Not much difference in price to buying one from them and installing  it yourself. Anilv

    • I have a few questions on the use of a (lever-type) jeweling tool in the adjustment of jewel endshakes, as I have never done this before. 1. If the endshake is too much or too little, how do you choose where to adjust the endshake? Do you adjust the endshake on the train bridge, or the main plate, or both? How do you decide which is the best? 2. When inserting the pusher into the spindle of a lever-type jeweling tool, such as a Favourite, is the best practice to take out the entire spindle from the tool frame to insert the pusher? And likewise, take out the entire spindle from the tool frame to remove the pusher? Or is it perfectly ok to insert or remove the pusher when the spindle is still inside the jeweling tool frame. Which way is safer/ best practice. 3. Is there an attachment to the base of the jeweling tool to hold the mainplate or bridges? I don’t seem to see any for sale, new or otherwise. Can I make one?
    • In the USA, you could try: https://www.jewelerssupplies.com/ or http://www.julesborel.com/ Cousins in the UK might be a possibility (although Waltham is a US watch, I'm sure some of them made it across the pond). https://www.cousinsuk.com/ Mark also has a list here: https://www.watchfix.com/category/watch-parts-tools-suppliers/watch-parts-tools-suppliers-us/
    • Yup. It's like the song from The Greatest Showman.... Never Enough! Never, never...
