11 sept 2021: The Revolution is done = the Death of Spiral area. Congratulations to Vincent CALABRESE

Sep 12, 2021,10:49 AM

Vincent presented yesterday, on sept 11th (a memorable date) at Vicenza Oro in Italy, the CATALYS.  

"Throughout my life, I have endeavoured, with the help of poetry and philosophy, to change the habits of the watchmaking world.
It is with great pleasure that I am announcing to you, as a preview, the death of the balance spring after 500 years of use.
This will be officially announced in Vicenza on 11 September at my press conference."

Here is the video of the novelty (many patents)


Enjoy this incredible improvement from the Maestro.

LOVE him +++++

Let's wait and see if this is really a fix

Having been fooled, conned, burned and swindled more than a few times by press conferences, often well-meaning inventors, and business men. I like Calabrese and have owned several of his watches. He is a VERY clever guy, but to say "The Spiral Hairspring ...

Let's see whet the experts say (sorry I am not qualified enough to judge). As you say this could possibly be a litte revolution... or not. In any case whatever the result it is thanks to such gifted watchmakers that the technique is moving forward. Merci ...

Great to see new innovations

 By: Weems@8 : September 12th, 2021-16:51
To think always ideas that comes alive. The silicon oscillator is just there, the silicon hairspring and silicon balance wheel for awhile. I loved always the tech around spirals. If the spiral is out of a watch, it feels for me a bit of the soul is taken ...

I suppose you refer to their new oscillator

 By: patrickh : September 13th, 2021-15:45
" That oscillator, beating at an unprecedented 288,000 vibrations an hour, about 40Hz, brings a motherlode of modern innovation to such a classic execution. At that rate, the Slimline Monolithic Manufacture ticks at 10 times the speed of most mechanical m...

Answers about FRICTION

Vincent CALABRESE: "There is no body in motion without friction! One of the subtleties of Calasys is that the friction of the Calasys is continuous, therefore controllable ... You just have to calculate it well and apply the appropriate solutions that I h...

Any updates on this?

To be sure, there are ways to replace conventional hairsprings, but I can't name too many that offer real improvements. Aside from the fact that this Calabrese proposal appears to use non-repairable DRIE parts, there's also a major burden of proof to be p...

I trust Vincent.

He has proven he is a Great Inventor . He worked on this project for 10 years, now. Give him some time to implement his CALASYS Concept with new different metal components and the mass production made by a partner ;-) I follow and wait for the final calib...
