I know I've seen a vintage VC automatic with a free-sprung balance, and since my interest is in hand-wound watches. My question is did they make any hand-wound movements also with free-sprung balances?
For the info. Stuning watch Doc.
Sorry, but I never opened the back of the Jalousie,
too complicated, and I read somehere that it was a free sprung,
found a pic and posted !
Not looking careful enough as I see now
I have a cal 1002, but not free sprung. I have seen automatics like the 1072 free sprung, but never a vintage manual wind. You learn something new everyday!
I remeber when we discussed it,
ei8thohms i think was the one who had seen and serviced it !
Keep in touch
I know this watch exists because I had the pleasure of restoring one a year or so ago and I fell absolutely in love with it. The K1002/2 movement is a lovely piece of work with a Gyromax (free-sprung) balance and the overall package was pretty close to horological nirvana for me.
