DuRoWe 585


The DuRoWe caliber 585 is a yet modern constructed but not a cheap movement from Pforzheim in Germany. It was probably made in the 1960ies and offers the usual indications of time (hour, minute, second) and date (with semi-fast correction).

The ring balance is secured in two inhouse “Duro-Swing” protection systems. She beats with slow 18000 A/h. The hairspring stud is fixed on the balance cock and there’s no long regulating arm, which makes the regulation process a little bit difficult.

The center second hand is directly driven, as well, as the center minute wheel.

On the dial side, you find a yoke winding mechanism.
