Compu-tik precision tool

In the early years of XXI. century watch makers are boasting their exceptional skills by presenting us classic mechanical watches with touch of luxuriousness and style. Aside from the sophistication and luxuriousness, they also incorporated in these master pieces unique materials that are rarely used such as Silizium and Platinum. If you are a person who prefer a functional watch with superb legibility, a well maintained watch will be a good choice. Computik helps you take care of your valuable jewells.

Compu-tik is a mechanical and electronic watch, and clock timing analyzer equipment. It is a professional instrument for testing:

  • Mechanical Watches and Clocks
  • Pendulum Clocks
  • Tuning Fork Watches
  • Digital and Analog Quartz Wathces and Clocks

Accessories:

  • 220-240V AC/5V DC USB Power Adapter

Background information

It is now reasonable for a consumer to expect his or her watch to neither gain nor lose more than about one-half second per day. Its accuracy must be about 6 parts per million (ppm) or better. The timing accuracy of the watch is directly dependent on the frequency of a crystal-controlled oscillator in the watch. The output of the watch oscillator serves as a clocking signal for an integrated circuit multi-stage binary counter thatserves as a frequency divider.

A mechanical watch uses the energy from a wound spring, and keeps time through the highly regulated release of that energy through a set of gears (the wheel train) and an escapement.

It differs from the typical quartz watch in that it uses purely mechanical components to keep time. Mechanical watches typically can run for about 40 hours on one full winding of the mainspring, with a few designs available with up to 8 days, or even 10 days, of power reserve.

This adjusting problem is a particulrly acute one for a small business where watches are sold and repaired. The jeweler is interested in being able to adjust the trimming components within the watch so that the timing standard meets desired specifications as to design center frequency. This could be done in many different ways, particularly if the jeweler had a large budget for purchasing expensive electronic measuring equipment. It is another matter, of course, to provide a relatively inexpensive, easy to operate, adequately accurate instrument to facilitate the adjustment.
