Uhr-Kraft: Give time an individual structure

Site is in German but a good read using google translate





For many, Christmas is a reason to make their loved ones very special gifts - for example jewelry. On the gift table then next to chains, rings and other shiny jewelery watches as well. So-called smartwatches are becoming increasingly popular. These smart watches are synchronized with the smartphone and have additional sensors. For example, they can count steps and retrieve e-mails.



Driving and tension spring

"High-tech on the wrist, who likes something like that ...", says Ralf Lehr and smiles. For the owner of Uhr-Kraft, mechanical movements exert a much greater fascination: "In a mechanical watch, a heart beats, we hear it ticking." The drive and tension spring, gear train, gear regulator and hand movement form the inner workings, whereas a smartwatch is made almost only made of boards.

"While such a minicomputer would be obsolete after two or three years, a mechanical watch is a piece that can last for generations." With good maintenance, of course. "Every five to seven years must have a watch like a car for inspection. Everything is taken apart, oiled, reassembled. Until next time."

“Your heart was warm and happy

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
