The spring, pallet, the escape wheel and the watch plate are made of silicon in the newly developed and self-manufactured calibre with the name Damasko “A35”
The new “A35” has a completely new and patented ratchet winding system for which special 4-point micro hybrid bearings without play were developed which, in the same way as also the rotor bearing, work without any lubricants due to the combination of materials, namely steel raceways and ceramic balls.
Damasko has invested nearly 3 million euros in manufacturing machines for production of the own calibre. Among other things, circuit boards, wheels and pinions, the balance and spring barrel, as well as rotors along with rotor bearings are fabricated.
This represents a major expansion in the production depth of the company Damasko, which up until then had already fully developed and self-manufactured its own cases along with crowns, pushers and barrels.
