Philippe Wurtz BRIVE
Due to the difficulties involved in combining a one-year power reserve and a central second hand, these two features are rarely found together in one clock. The BRIVE's combination of these two features as well as an anchor that is not laid on its own axle, but rather attached to the pendulum, is absolutely unique. Contrary to common practice, the works are driven by two tungsten weights using an epicycloidal gear so that the clock continues to run even while being wound. The rod of the pendulum, which weighs seven kilos, is made of Invar and bears an air-pressure and temperature compensator.
The escape wheel is made of a very light alloy and driven by a delicate spiral spring in its hub. The escapement is highly efficient due to minimal inertia. Friction loss in the gearing is negligible as a result of diamond coating throughout.
Expert craftsmanship is visible in the details: the Geneva stripes on the plates, the polished chatons, wheels and their spokes. The case consists of fine, highly polished nickel-coated brass framing with facetted glass sides.
The BRIVE's technical innovations, high-quality materials and meticulous handiwork combine to make it not only exclusively valuable but also extremely reliable due to its lasting precision.
