Dynamic Poising: A Conversation With Gravity

  • HSNY at the General Society Library 20 West 44th Street New York, NY, 10036 United States

John Teifert - Manager, Technical Workshop, Swatch Group U.S.
Doors open at 6:00pm for coffee & conversation. Lecture begins promptly at 7:00pm.

Please note that this meeting is on June 13, rather than our usual first Monday of the month.

Dynamic poising is an important skill that allows watchmakers to minimize positional errors. The operation today is fairly straightforward as long as you understand the theory of why you're making the adjustment. The history of dynamic poising helps us appreciate the value of a well adjusted movement and the difficulty involved in making dynamic adjustments. Often poorly understood, we will discuss the history, theory, and practice of proper dynamic poising.
