For the first time in the history of watchmaking, Bernhard Lederer has created a movement that integrates an independent double-wheel escapement – dual barrels, dual gear trains, dual escape wheels – with dual remontoirs. This unique wristwatch movement is a tribute to George Daniels and his masterpieces, the Space Traveller I and Space Traveller II pocket watches with their independent double-wheel escapements, created over forty years ago.
In the Central Impulse Chronometer, Bernhard Lederer has focused his innovations on making the transmission of energy to the balance wheel as uniform as possible. The timekeeping impulses are ideally placed and lighter in impact. The benefits are chronometer performance with rate stability throughout the entire power reserve, and prolongation of the life of the watch mechanism.
