Wempe GlashÜTte: Chronometerwerke Automatic

First own automatic movement for the Jubilee.

According to http://www.watchtutorials.org/seiko-sport-watches-for-ladies/sports-watch.html, ten years ago, jeweller Wempe started with its own watch brand. With the new Chronometerwerke automatic, Wempe Glashütte is celebrating this anniversary. While in the watch line time-tested calibres work on ETA-based (the collection now includes 136 models), ticking in the Chronometerwerke clocks from the beginning of their own caliber. The first three hand lift works were created in cooperation with Nomos. Now Wempe Glashütte is treading new paths.

In the Chronometerwerke Automatic, The CW 4–Wempes is the first own automatic movement. The development lasted three and a half years and took place together with the Swiss manufacturer Soprod. It was decided for this partner that Bernhard Stoll (watch chief at Wempe) is aware, since Soprod is building attractive modules. They all fit the new CW 4 automatic movement. It has a date display and proud 92 hours of speed reserve. A double spring-loaded barrel provides the necessary power, replenishment comes from a decentrally placed Microrotor.

The glassworks tradition was also taken into account in the construction. The CW 4 has a three-quarter board, striped grinding, gold, blued screws and a hand-engraved balance bridge. These components are manufactured as well as the automatic and Pendulum bridge in Glashütte. The Assembly and Reglage also takes place there. Wempe puts the new plant in a 41 mm steel housing (6,950 euro) or gold (14,950 euro). Both versions come with a leather strap with buckle and are certified as Chronometers like all Wempe models. mg
