More than 12 years ago, the watch brand Angular Momentum has released the first line of wristwatches “The Pioneers”. The line consisted of four distinct models of watches made in the classical style, fashionable in the watchmaking world 100 years ago. The uniqueness of watches was that the time recorded is not minute and hour hands set on the dial, and a rotating disk with the size of the dial, indexing hour and minute hand.
Rotating clockwise disk has a minute track on the 12-time indices, which are moving in a clockwise path. The disc makes a single turnover in 12 hours, and hours figures are visible on the index position 12, but the minute hand captures moments in a traditional way.
This concept is called a “system of rotating disk,” and was registered as a Patent CH 696 899 in 1997. No matter how simple a concept, it was difficult to perceive by the consumer, because in this time of time the world is not rife with innovations on the dials of watches. But over time, the watch industry has become much more advanced in terms of technological innovation, and technology of rotating hour drive was used by many brands.
In subsequent years, the company has released numerous Angular Momentum model wristwatch dials which were based on a rotating disk technology, indexing the hour, minute, second time zone, moon phase and date.
In June 2011, Angular Momentum has introduced a new model of Classic “RDS” Dress Watch, equipped with a classical system of a rotating disk. Three-tiered housing 36 mm in diameter with mirror-polished surface is made of quality stainless steel. On the back of the medallion is engraved with the model with floral motifs.
Sapphire crystal protects the dial for greater strength, double-curved. The model is based on a modified historical caliber FHF 96 with manual winding. Robust mechanism makes 18 000 pc / h and has 48 hours power reserve. Elegant wristwatch equipped with a rotating disk hour and minute hands.
