Heritage Watch Manufactory Unveils Tensus Model

Jan 26, 2011
Heritage Watch Manufactory takes great pride in announcing its new Tensus watch. A subtle combination of constructive grace and superior craftsmanship, this horological creation targets individuals with a preference for complicated timekeepers, which accommodate their flare of elegance.

The new Heritage Watch Manufactory model draws and holds the eye with a functional, yet refined dial, done in brass or gold. Designed by Eric Giroud, it whispers the time through hours, minutes and seconds.

The hours and minutes are individually displayed by central skeletonized hands, manufactured from hardened steel. They travel over Arabic numerals, performed in two colors.

Taking care of seconds is a delicate hand, which marks its path around a counter at 6 oclock. It is supported by a power reserve indicator, exposed at 9 oclock. The dial of the new Tensus watch is characterized by a high level of shock resistance. It is achieved due to its positioning by means of pins, screwed directly into the movement.

The functions mentioned are governed by a crown, located at 3 oclock. Animating them is a Swiss-made HWM Cal. 880 movement, composed of hardened parts. It measures 38.30 mm in diameter and stands 7.00 mm in height. The plates, integrated within the mechanism, are hand-bevelled.

Paved with 55 jewels, the caliber utilizes a Breguet over-coil hairspring with a mass-regulated Vivax balance wheel. It oscillates at 18, 000 vibrations per hour. The movement also incorporates a Sequax triple anchor escapement mechanism with a double escape wheel and constant power.

The energy storage function is handled by the Pariter twin mainspring barrel, which ensures a power reserve of 60 hours.

The reliable mechanism seats comfortably in an appealing case, decked out in polished/sanitized steel, white or red gold. Its diameter is equal to 42.50 mm. The front of the body is armed with a domed sapphire crystal. For the case-back the brands specialists utilized a flat sapphire glass. The case is capable of withstanding water pressures down to 50 meters.

The new Heritage Watch Manufactory watch is mounted on alligator leather strap, finished with a pin buckle.
