The escape wheel; an important part of the NOMOS swing system. In order to optimize the interaction of all the elements, our designers spent a great deal of time on calculations, simulations, and tests, only to return to the calculations again. Many rounds were made, because every detail counts. The angles, surface finish, mass, and most importantly, the inertia are all critical factors. Imagine a runner who starts a 100-meter sprint. But shortly after starting they stop again, not even running two meters. Just starting and stopping again. And starting and stopping again. Our escape wheel does this six times a second, or 518,400 times a day. But between the many assembly and control steps, it is simply allowed to spin in this film. Several laps without stopping, almost like a long-distance run—what luck!
