The first models of the brand new TIME MOVER® HANDWOUND from BUBEN&ZORWEG have been delivered. It is yet another milestone for the innovative high-end manufacturer of elitist masterpieces – as a provider of a “watch winder“ for handwound watches that sets new standards.
BUBEN&ZORWEG and the legendary TIME MOVER® models have been at the pinnacle of the world market for watch winders for automatic watches for many years. The devices for handwound watches available to date were so far unable to meet the strict requirements that BUBEN&ZORWEG places on quality and performance.
However, there was and still is a clear demand: prolonged periods of standstill are as detrimental to the valuable calibers of precious handwound watches as they are to the inner workings of automatic watches.
The TIME MOVER® technology provided the solution that has long since prevailed by the collectors and lovers of luxurious automatic chronometers. Why, one might ask oneself, was it so difficult to develop a comparable top-quality product for automatically winding handwound watches?
“The reasons became apparent in the form of the challenges we faced when we started our development work. Mastering the countless obstacles en route to a perfectly functioning TIME MOVER® HANDWOUND was no easy task, and it took the long-standing experience gained from our mature TIME MOVER® technology to enable us to put our reputation behind the market launch of a product that the proud owners of precious handwound watches could entrust their favorite time-pieces to with a clear conscience,“ reports managing director Christian Zorweg.
Fingertip feeling – or when every millisecond counts
One of the most difficult hurdles common to handwound watches was the lack of a safety clutch: the force applied to the spring increases continuously until it reaches its ideal tension. The TIME MOVER® HANDWOUND is equipped with state-of-the-art, electronically controlled sensors that monitor changes in spring tension until it reaches the ideal point. The winding process stops in a matter of milliseconds as soon as this point is reached.
BUBEN&ZORWEG has therefore basically relocated the safety clutch externally to the watch winder system, so to speak, where it reliably prevents any over-tensioning of the spring.
The operating modes of the TIME MOVER® HANDWOUND are equally aligned with the strict requirements upheld by the proud owners of precious handwound watches
Words from the managing director Harald Buben
“What will be the next item to emerge from BUBEN&ZORWEG‘s hotbed of innovation? “Our creative development processes reach far ahead, up to 5 years into the future. At the same time, we have made it a tradition not to speak of things that are not yet ripe for decision. What I can say is that we are continuously working intensely on developing fascinating new objects and solutions. This time it is the TIME MOVER® HANDWOUND; a little inconspicuous, perhaps, but nonetheless a sensation for every lover of precious handwound watches."
