* Incabloc anti-shok system
Since its origins, Incabloc® has been inseparable from Swiss watchmaking, and the majority of the mechanical watches made in Switzerland today use this system to protect their balance-staff pivots from shocks. Developed in the 1930s, the Incabloc® shock absorber relies on a tiny, specially shaped spring calculated for a range of mechanical functions. The ingenious design of the lyre-spring® combined with the double cone of the recentering system react instantly to shocks of varying intensity from any direction. The device thus confers unprecedented resistance to the regulating organ of mechanical watches. Incabloc® was adopted by watchmakers the moment it came on the market. The brand, with its lyre-spring® symbol soon became a world reference. The Zutter family’s acquisition of the product from Portescap in 1988 ensures that production remains in its hometown of La Chaux-de-Fonds.
This is actually not glass but a material made by crystallising pure aluminium oxide at very high temperatures. This transparent material has a hardness comparable to natural sapphire gemstones, thus its name. However, with the absence of colouring agents, it doesn’t have any hues or chroma.
In addition, sapphire’s scratch and shatter resistance prove its status as one of the hardest substances on earth. To further prove this, it measures 9 on the Mohs scale. That’s pretty close to Diamond that measures 10 on the scale! This makes sapphire crystals virtually scratchproof. However, anything harder than sapphire can scratch it. So, unless it comes into contact with a diamond or silicon carbide, you’re all good.
Sébastien Bresse achieve black cases and cases with gold coating by using a base metal such as titanium or steel for the case and then treating it with a PVD process. PVD coating, or Physical Vapor Deposition coating, defines a variety of vacuum coating methods wherein a black or gold coating is applied to the case and bracelet (if applicable). This coating generally also adds a protective barrier.
Essentially, PVD coating vaporizes specialized materials through a high-tech vacuum process and deposits a thin layer on the case. It is accomplished by introducing reactive gasses (nitrogen, oxygen or hydrocarbon-based) to the metallic vapor, to create the coating thanks to a chemical reaction. For this reason, PVD coating is done in a specialized reaction chamber.
By adding a PVD coating, the material is generally strengthened, hardened and garners increased resistance to water, wear and tear, and friction. PVD generally cannot be removed once it is applied and it won’t wear off. It also gives the watch a great stealth look thanks to its polished appearance.
Gold is one of the world's most precious and prized metals. It is renowned for its radiance and numerous technical properties: non-oxidising, insoluble, unalterable. Sébastien Bresse uses 18K gold, a prestigious alloy comprising 75% pure gold combined with a mix of silver and copper useful in gold production. Thanks to Sébastien Bresse expertise and craftsmanship, gold timepieces have unmatched longevity, generation after generation.
