2021 Revolution Awards – Technical breakthrough

Bernhard Lederer had the honour of receiving the “Technical Breakthrough” 2021 Revolution Award.

Event date:

In the words of Revolution: “The Central Impulse Chronometer represents not just an obsessive exercise in chronometry, but also a direct connection to the work of two of the most remarkable figures in the history of precision timekeeping — namely George Daniels and Abraham-Louis Breguet. In contrast to the traditional Swiss lever, it delivers two direct impulses to the balance per cycle and operates virtually without friction. Lederer further refined the geometry of the escapement to eliminate recoil as well as to prevent the escape wheel from tripping at low amplitude.”
