MAURON MUSY ARMµRE COLLECTION

The ARMµRE watch collection by Swiss watch brand Mauron Musy introduces a world premier innovation for ensuring water resistance for the wristwatches without the use of traditional gasket system. These automatic timepieces, equipped with ETERNA self-winding Calibre 3909A and crafted with high grade stainless steel, features glare proofed sapphire crystal and case-back and HNBR rubber or leather strap.
Patented by the company founders in 2014 and a first in the watch making world, the nO-Ring® water-proofing system was born in a field where innovation and tradition are not necessarily contradictory. Mauron Musy offers a new take on watches with a rugged, unchanging product that is truly built to last. In their Broye valley workshops, these diligent entrepreneurs created an ingenious system of direct-seal water-resistance. Their method is based on clamp brace technology, with the case band and bezel of the timepiece acting as a brace. Absolute flatness, impeccable precision and carefully mastered component surfaces combine to make these watches perfectly watertight.

When reflecting on water resistance, one of the main problems facing watches, Mauron Musy decided to rethink the case design serving to protect the movement from being infiltrated by solids, liquids and even gases. Traditionally, this protection is achieved by synthetic sealing rings (gaskets) with a limited lifespan. The Mauron Musy concept offers a water-resistant watch exempt from the need for regular gasket changes.
The nO-Ring® complication relates to the case construction. Firstly, the absence of any clamping screws avoids any risk of deforming the flat surfaces. The glass and the back are clamped down by satellite springs placed around the entire perimeter, compressed and tensed by the closure of the case band and bezel. The parts are divided into several segments held together and secured by hinges during the assembly process and working on the same principle as clamp braces. So achieve maximum water resistance, the surfaces in contact with the various components are hardened, lapped with a grinding tool and then reworked to ensure the required flatness and the appropriate roughness of the surface profile.

Direct dynamic water resistance governed by the crown winding-stem is distinguished by extreme precision and a careful choice of materials. Each crown shaft is fitted in its bearing, thereby creating such a nanometrically accurate fit that there is no risk of infiltration, even when the crown is handled under water.

Endowed with a robust and elegant character, the ARMURE collection embodies the creative expertise of the innovative Manufacture Mauron Musy. The nO-Ring® water proofing concept results in a sleekly curved case middle within which each component plays a fundamental role. Stemming from a pioneering technology in the field of watch making, the clamps are the result of multiple experiments, and testify to extreme precision. This collection with its masterfully mechanized style vividly reflects the personality of the company founders.
