Title
(EN) DEVICE FOR ASSEMBLING AN ADORNMENT ON A WATCH
(FR) DISPOSITIF D'ASSEMBLAGE D'UNE PARURE SUR UNE MONTRE
Abstract
(EN)
The inventive device enables precious materials (such as crystal, sapphire, wood, stone, carbon, etc.) to be used in watchcase design without the need for highly sophisticated machining techniques. The set consists of an adornment (5) that surrounds the bezel of a traditionally designed watch (4). The adornment (5) is separated from the bezel (4) by elastic means (9) (10) that absorb shocks and avoid precise adjustment tolerances between the bezel (4) and the adornment (5), while at the same time guaranteeing full waterproofness. The invention makes it possible to cut production and assembly costs and offers various possibilities for decorating watchcases with original and new materials.
(FR)
Le présent dispositif permet l'utilisation de matériaux nobles (tels que: cristal, saphir, bois, pierre, carbone, etc.) dans la conception des boîtiers de montres sans avoir recours à des technologies d'usinage très sophistiquées. L'ensemble se compose d'une parure (5) ceinturant la carrure de la montre de construction traditionnelle (4). La parure (5) est isolée de la carrure (4) par des moyens élastiques (9, 10) permettant d'absorber les chocs et en second lieu d'éviter la précision des tolérances d'ajustement entre carrure (4) et parure (5) tout en assurant une parfaite étanchéité. Cette invention permet de réduire les coûts de fabricaiton et d'assemblage tout en permettant d'offrir des possibilités d'habillage des boîtes de montres par des matériaux originaux et nouveaux.
