THE CONCEPT


Quinting's movement stemmed from the desire to see time told through hands floating on a watch wearer’s wrist. This is made possible by superposing several thin, previously metalized, sapphire discs given an antireflection coating. It is with this very complicated system of stationary and moving sapphire discs that the watch runs.

With the exception of 7 parts, including the hands, all the components of a Quinting watch, numbering 230 and 26 sub-assemblies are manufactured exclusively for Quinting. The watches are assembled by hand at the manufacture in Geneva, Switzerland.

Since the creation of the first chronograph released on the market (movement: Quinting tech-1), Quinting developed 3 more 100% transparent movements: Quinting tech-2, 4, and 5.


THE ADDED VALUE OF THE MOVEMENT


It is a pleasure to hold something in your hand with the knowledge that whoever made it took extra care and time to ensure its perfection. Quinting watches are one of those exceptional objects.

The movement is impossible to copy. No fakes exist, nor will they. It is the first and only 100% transparent movement, and the first and only sapphire movement. The extremely delicate operation of fabricating Quinting's movement is performed in a white room (dust free) to ensure perfect transparency. The movement is 100% transparent, because the mechanism is in sapphire. This advanced technique requires an elevated level of precision and knowledge. Unlike other complicated watches that have metal toothed discs, complicated Quinting watches contain wheels composed of sapphire, rubber, and metal. This characteristic demands high quality workmanship and absolute precision from the watch maker, placing Quinting watches among the most sophisticated and complex on the market.


WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE COMPLICATED MOVEMENT IN METAL AND THE COMPLICATED QUINTING MOVEMENT IN SAPPHIRE ?


                                                        
  A complicated movement in metal allows the watch maker to work at 80% precision.

When a hole is pierced in the metal piece, even if the hole is not perfectly centred, the watchmaker will still be able to place the piece, because metal is an elastic material.
  Quinting’s sapphire movement requires 100% precision from the watchmaker due to the fact that the mineral is not elastic. When the watchmaker makes a hole in a sapphire piece, the hole must be perfectly centred because the mineral is a hard and non-elastic material.  


COLLECTION MOUVEMENTS QUINTING TECH


Quinting’s movement was created to fulfill the dream of a 100% transparent watch. Each of the four movements created by Quinting’s team of watch makers are unique and patented; no copies exist of our watches, or our movements. The movements contain the 3rd dimension because of the numerous sapphires layers, and due to this unique aspect they can be customized in various ways.
