What a beautiful movement! We chose this hand wound mechanical #watchmovement on purpose. It represents movements that were made for pocket watches over a span of a century. In fact, Unitas or now ETA first produced 6497 as a pocket watch movement back in the 50s. Today, #eta6497 is one of the most applied movements for #handwound watches. We use high quality Seagull version. Turn up your volume to listen to very unique beat of 21,000 beats per minute. It is a beauty to admire through an open #caseback : *rhodium finish with Geneva stripes decoration
*over 100 tiny parts
Caseback Sunday with Gronefled 1941 Remontoire. It's such a alluring and evidently superbly finished movement that shouts sophistication. The shadows that run thru the movement are from my window grills, but strangely breaks the perspicacious qualities of the austere calibre G-05.
Here we have another Breguet case back - Tradition 7067 GMT in 18-carat white gold case. Hand-wound movement made out of 215 components with the power reserve indicator on the back. The movement has a mat gray NAC finish, a surface treatment that deposits a charcoal-gray alloy of precious metals from the platinum family through electroplating.🇨🇭 #oldestwatchstore

Caseback Saturday with the glorious Vacheron Constantin Harmony Monopusher Chronograph. The Calibre 3300 has a relatively easy layout and not visually complex like the Lange Datograph, yet with lotsa interesting details like the Maltese Cross cap to the column wheel.
We installed fast pins into the 3-link and leather bands. This allows you to change out the bands in mere seconds. Anyone that pre-orders the Pursuit2 will receive a complimentary leather band! #nobletimepieces#timeisnoble
Replacement of the silk in to the rear door of a clock. This particular case back was painted black. We repainted the case back and cut new silk material. It was then PVA bonded to the inside #caseback#clockdoor
One for the F.P. Journe fans out there. The intricate and visually stimulating case back of the Sonnerie Souveraine Grande et Petite Sonnerie. 🎶🎶
