Mechanical and Connected
The venerable and ingenious idea of using kinetic energy of wrist-motions
to automatically wind mechanical watch movements has been one of the cornerstones for the success of Swiss Watchmaking.
Combining an unmodified standard movement (e.g. 2824, 2892) with a small additional module to harvest and transform said energy into electrical power
required to provide connectivity and to indicate auxiliary functions discretely on a paper-thin graphic display when needed.
All this while timekeeping of the mechanical movement ticks independently.
The watch has the size and thickness of a common mechanical chronograph.
The indispensable longevity expected of luxury timepieces is safeguarded by a modular construction easily replaceable, should there be major future changes in hardware technology (e.g. of Bluetooth-systems).
No battery - no recharging!
The combination of a sophisticated digital device with mechanically harvested energy is explained in the above video; the knowhow for the only such system ever developed and produced successfully is now exclusively embedded and updated in TimeConnect.
Elaborate software and an ingenious function flow chart assisted by various
sensors provide full connectivity and display in spite of the extremely low and irregular energy obtained from said harvesting by a micro-generator system (MGS).
While the TC Concept itself is built on available components and technology, the final construction comprises a number of opportunities for strategic hard- and software patent applications.
Long-life Battery Option:
Connected Quartz Watches
Watchmaking has always fascinated by its myriads of designs, forms and
colors, appealing to individual personal choices
Integration of motor-driven physical hands, dials and bluetooth-connected auxiliary functions indicated on a high-resolution graphic display and guided
by smartphone apps.
Timekeeping automatically adjusting to timezones and daylight-saving but remaining otherwise independent of external devices.
Battery-life >18 month.
TimeConnect© elaborates and implements turn-key projects such as our Smartwatch-concept, based on practical experience with harvesting concepts and applied software.
