PHILOSOPHY

Overcoming obstacles and braving the impossible to attain perfection and excellence; this philosophy motivated Quinting to create the first and only 100% transparent watch in the world.


SAPPHIRE MOVEMENT

Quinting belongs to the elite of the watch-making industry, the very small circle of watch brands which produce their own movements, therefore earning the status of watch-making manufacture.

Quinting's movements are composed of a superposition of sapphire discs, some of which are stationary and the rest of which are mobile. The sapphire discs are metalized and given an anti-reflection coating. The system is very complicated and requires extreme precision. The layers need to be perfectly parallel, the distance between each sapphire measures between 0,08 to 0,10 millimeters.

The perfect concentricity of the sapphires used by Quinting is crucial. Their perfection is attained by pushing the limits of precision that today’s technology can obtain.

In order to assemble a Quinting watch, 100% accuracy is required, unlike standard movement where an accuracy of 80% is sufficient.

This exceptional technology puts Quinting watches among the most sophisticated and complicated models on the watch-making market.


THE CYCLONE

Breguet created the tourbillon for the pocket watch to compensate the effects of gravity. For the wrist watch, Quinting developed the cyclone. This system not only compensates the effects of gravity, but also the effects of synergy induced by movements of the wrist.

The cyclone has two movements which turn in opposite directions, one sapphire disc rotating clockwise and one counter clockwise at the speed of the second hand. Thus, if some wheels accelerate, the other ones decelerate and due to the mysterious system of Quinting, the forces will be compensated, not only the ones of gravity, but also the strong ones which are created by rough movements of the wrist.


MYSTERIOUS LITTLE WATCH-MAKER

Quinting chronographs reset in case of shock. Quinting manufacture was able to make this possible by placing a mysterious little watchmaker inside the watch. The wheels were assembled on clutches, allowing them to disengage. If the hands of the chronographs are no longer at 12 am due to shock, the mechanism has automatically disengaged the wheels. To re-engage the wheels, one must push the chronograph buttons, and as if by magic, the counters will readjust simultaneously.
