Deconstruction Credor Spring Drive Sonnerie
Though the Credor Spring Drive Sonnerie was unveiled back at Baselworld in 2006, it remains to this day one of the most interesting watches to come from Credor. The watch is, as the name indicates, driven by a Spring Drive caliber, and a manual one at that. But it’s not just any Spring Drive — this one is an hour repeater. This is haute horlogerie at its best, and done in a way that only a brand like Credor would do it. The Naked Watchmaker, one of our favorite horological websites, deconstructed an early prototype of this movement — all 616 components of it. If you’re into seeing what makes this thing tick (and chime), you’ll want to check it out.
