A new masterpiece has now been added to the "Bernard Favre Watch Accessories collection" – the Crown Ultimate which marries precision mechanics with watchmaking artistry. Its innovative and exclusive mechanism immerses us in the world of the workshops of yesteryear. The Crown Ultimate is a new sophisticated timekeeping instrument designed to power hand-wound timepieces with any level of complication.

Assembled and checked in the workshops of Bernard Favre, all the components of the Crown Ultimate have been entirely manufactured in Switzerland according to the highest quality standards. Thanks to its adaptable support, this piece of workshop equipment can accommodate timepieces of all shapes, measuring from 24 to 60 mm in diameter, as well as those equipped with a crown positioned at 3 o'clock, 4 o'clock or 12 o'clock.

Rotating the support, which is calibrated over a 135-degree segment, enables the crown to be precisely positioned irrespective of the position of the crown on the watch case. A setting wheel can also be used to adjust the height of the support, depending on the thickness of each watch case.

It should be noted that the timepiece is held securely in place by four mobile rods which are covered in leather to protect the watch case. These rods can be adjusted individually.

An ingenious mechanism

A system of cogs, powered by an extremely quiet and very low-consumption electric motor, drives a clamp fixed on the watch crown. The rotation of this crown winds the barrel spring until it is at full capacity. Once winding is complete, and when the spring is fully tensioned, an electronic command from the motor interrupts the process. Thanks to its rechargeable lithium-ion battery, the device guarantees an operating autonomy of 6 months.
