We have developed our new caliber on the basis of the legendary vintage and manually wound AS1130. The bridges are newly constructed and much stiffer now. They are riminiscent of the early 20th. century pocket watch movements with their curved bridges. Every component was re-engineered and all the surfaces are hand finished.
Our focus was especially on reducing the friction within the wheel train. The longevity of the wheels and the escapement could be increased even more by this. Our second manufactory movement HUW 1130 Premium sets a new technical standard and combines ruggedness and precision.
The Premium-version is reserved for HENTSCHEL watches in chronometer quality. The distinct screwed gold Chatons offer the most laborious but technically best solution for bearing the wheels pivots. For a exceedingly precise regulation a swans neck regulator is provided. Only the best movements in watch history were equipped with a sophisticated configuration like this.
