Back from Rolex and a new strap to celebrate! Amazingly only lost two seconds since last Friday too.

Back to modern times today with the quirky Stührling Grand Regatta powered by a Ronda 515 quartz movement. Weird thing about this watch is it has decent lume on the dial, but none at all on the hands. Which makes reading the time at night a challenge. I still like it.

The shock resistance is quite interesting (to me, anyway!)

I was never able to establish exactly what it was, only that it has every appearance of being hand-knitted.  Maybe some in-house Lorsa job and fashioned to match the garden-shed nature of the movement?

The same device is used by some examples of the 65x shown in the good Dr R’s archive but, rather cunningly, he omits to identify it.

Cheers.

Dr R’s

I'll ask him for you if you like - he was good enough to reply about my Harwood (only to say the involvement of the main protagonists was complicated enough, so good luck with the minor ones :mad0218:)

But basically, it looks like a normal 'non-shock' bearing with a DIY spring clipped in!  Don't see how it allows the bearing to move like the Incablock.  I was looking at the incablock more closely today, and it looks like it was designed to readjust the bearing in 4 directions, not just the obvious two implied by the single axis symmetry, what do you think?

I most certainly does look DIY  -  just don't yet know who the "Y" was. And, it might offer some protection against axial shocks but clearly not the multi-directional protection of Incabloc.  

As for asking Dr R, well that's a very kind offer, my dear JJ but, well, that'd be cheating wouldn't it:), one reason why I've not yet done so myself, and is different from, say, a forum member recognising and sharing their knowledge  Foolishly, I consider half the fun (and all of the grief) of the vintage "madness" is in making my own discoveries when there are potentially more rabbit holes to investigate. "Get a life" as the fragrant Mrs B so eloquently, and frequently, is wont to say.

And as an afterthought, I'm sure that R.R. would have named it had he known what it was, as he does with most everything else.

Cheers.

Maybe we should have a forum competition to name it?

I am going with

I think that's being rather more charitable than it deserves.
