Paul Wyler presented his first 16 and 19-line precision movements to the public in 1927. The particularity of these was the Incaflex balance wheel, which was legendary at the time.

The Wyler Incaflex balance wheel is protected along its diameter by two curved, elastic arms, which absorb any shocks to the balance wheel.

In addition to producing his own calibres, Wyler also modified movements of other large-scale producers and sold these on to other watch companies. In some cases, the basic calibre was changed so much that the movements should actually be considered as Wyler calibres.

In 1937 the WYLER INTRODUCED THE WATER-RESISTANT       watch that was not fitted with the conventional soft gaskets.

The crystal was pressed in between the edge of the case and a pressed or screwed bezel, the gap between the winding shaft and the watch case was sealed hydraulically by fitting the winding shaft and bushing together, in the same material, to 1/500mm

Power Reserve 42

 

NOTE THE INCAFLEX BALANCE

IT IS THE BRASS WHEEL ON LOWER LEFT
IT DOES NOT HAVE THE STANDARD

"CROSS"

ATTACHING THE OUTER WHEEL TO THE CENTER
WYLER INVENTED THE SWIRLING
"S"
BRACE INSTEAD OF USING THE
CROSS ATTACHING BRACE

WHY?

IF THE WATCH IS DROPPED AND LANDS ON SIDE
THE BALANCE STAFF PIVOTS DO NOT BREAK
LIKE THAT OF THE SOLID CROSS BRACED BALANCE
IT ALLOWS THE BALANCE TO FLEX.


THIS SYSTEM IS STILL UTILIZED TODAY
ON MODERN WYLER.

THE OTHER ITEM IS CALLED

INCABLOC

INCABLOC IS A SHOCK SYSTEM MOUNTED
AT TOP AND BOTTOM OF STAFF

THIS PROTECTS BALANCE PIVOTS

PIVOTS ARE THE MACHINED ENDS OD STAFFS THAT FIT IN
JEWELS & TAKE BRUNT OF WEAR THROUGH MOTION

FROM UP AND DOWN SHOCK BREAKAGE

WHILE THIS PARTICULAR MOVEMENT
DOES NOT HAVE THE THEN TRADE MARKED

"INCABLOC SYSTEM"

IT DOES HAVE THE WYLER SHOCK SYSTEM

NOTE THE BRASS RING WITH RED JEWEL IN CENTER

SO THIS MOVEMENT IS *DOUBLE PROTECTED

UP AND DOWN
AND
SIDEWAYS


*THE VARIOUS PROTECTION SYSTEMS DESIGNED BY THE WATCH INDUSTRY DO NOTE PROTECT AGAINST "SAVAGE BREAKAGE ", THEY WERE DESIGNED TO PROTECT AGAINST NORMAL DROPPAGE ETC. SO  DO NOT THROUGH THE WATCH IS RAGE, HAMMER YOUR NEW ROOF, THROW IT OUT THE AIRPLANE AND EXPECT IT TO NOT BREAK SOMETHING!
