G’day
TZners,

I have been taking some close-up pictures once again. This time I concentrated on the different styles of regulators found on an assortment of watch movements. It’s quite incredible to see the diversity of methods and devices employed by the different manufacturers, both vintage and contemporary, to accomplish the task of regulation. Apart from the ingenuity displayed, these devices can be seen as works of art in themselves.


If you would like to see the method I use for these close up pictures, please click
HERE for an explanation of the digital camera/lens setup, and some more
pics.


Move your mouse pointer over the thumbnail pics below to see a description of each movement, and then click on the thumbnail to view a larger pic of the regulator.
