The Peripheral Rotor

Post by koimaster » July 10th 2020, 10:19pm

Since 2009 and the introduction of the Carl F Bucherer calibre a1000 , peripheral rotors are becoming more and more fashionable , with this smart stylish solution , the winding mass is an annular segment mounted and swinging around the movement , instead of a centrally mounted oscillating weight rotating over the movement . This offers an unobstructed view of the movement along with providing the convenience of automatic winding .

Hmmm, not even a mention of the Citizen 0310 and its derivatives. I call that a lousy attempt at presenting the history of the solution. I mean, to look over the one peripheral rotor movement family that actually was a success, and did see mass production? Pretty fucking lame, if you ask me.
You cannot explain away a wantonly immoral act, because you think that it is connected to some higher purpose.
