A pocket watch - the most original kind of portable timekeeping.
An absolute must with the vest, a special time measuring instrument in everyday life. We gave our model a Lépine design, which means the crown is at 12 O’clock and it doesn’t have a spring lid. This makes this watch robust and suitable for everyday use.
Thanks to the design without a sprind lid, the watch also makes an excellent table clock because you can always keep an eye on the face or, if you want a slightly calmer design, the finely decorated pocket watch movement HS81.4
The pocket watch in a stainless steel case
With this pocket watch we return to the beginnings of our watch workshop. The first watches we made in 1865 were pocket watches - and we never stopped making these special timepieces. Even today we manufacture pocket watches of outstanding quality. The GUI-TU1 model with a solid stainless steel case with screwed sapphire crystal on the dial and movement side bears witness to this.
For this pilot's watch with a decentralized second, we decided to produce a new movement variant based on the baseplate of the HS81 caliber family that we already have: the HS81.6 Each of these movements is engraved with HS81 on the baseplate and with an individual movement serial number on large bridge.
Important: the new movement has a slightly different look!
