Eppler 2

Description

The Eppler calibe 2 is a typical representative of the 10 12 ligne pin lever movements, which were very popular especially after WW II in cheap(est) wristwaches.

It is a little bit different than most of its colleagues, since it uses a balance bridge instead of a balance cock, and additionally, the balance is beared in four rubies and imitates a screw balance. The “screws” are half-circles, fixed to the balance and not adjustable at all.

A noteable detail is, that the lever has got a counterweight below the escapement wheel.

On the dial side, there’s a rocking bar winding mechanism and the locking mechanism.
