Abstract:
The invention concerns a slide device for a timepiece component, comprising a generally cylindrical tube (10), designed to be assembled to a watch case and defining a slide (11) engaged and mounted axially sliding in said tube (10), a coil spring (12) interposed between the tube (10) and the slide (11), to generate an axial force, and a radially deformable elastic member (13), axially integral with the slide and co-operating with said tube to define a coupling, wherein said slide (11) comprises a body (25) linking the inside and the outside of the watch, and a head (26) enabling the user to activate it, and said tube comprising an internal wall provided with a slot (23). The inventive device is characterised in that the elastic member (13) and the coil spring (12) overlap axially. The invention is applicable to watch cases.
