Mechanical Watch Movement Components

Watch Movement Components

We can find an amazing piece of technological innovation in a watch. A mechanical watch movement is made up of five different components to keep accurate time.

  • Wind-up watches are powered by a spring.
  • An oscillating mass is needed to provide the time base.
  • Two or more hands tell time for the hour, minute and second count.
  • Gears are needed to connect the springs, hands and the ticking of the oscillating mass.
  • A numbered dial installed for reading the time.

The innovation of a tuning fork to keep better time and installing a battery to replace the wind-up mechanism are just a few of the improvements made in the last fifty years. Esslinger & Co. has extensive supplies and replacement components whether you have a simple watch repair or the most difficult repair requiring the latest innovations.
