A team listening to your concerns

The type and level of sounds generated by rotation of the rotor can disturb a sensitive wearer of a mechanical watch with automatically-wound movement. To limit such effects, our engineers have created a bearing with built-in damper: the ActiVib bearing. It incorporates a damper made from elastomeric polymer specially developed for this application.
