  • Patent number: 9778621
    Abstract: Timepiece displaying the current time and including at least first and second display devices for a time-related quantity, the first and second display devices each being driven by a drive mechanism including a drive wheel (2; 2a), which is itself driven by the movement of the timepiece (3), at least the drive wheel (2; 2a) of one of the drive mechanisms carrying a finger (4; 4a) via which the wheel drives the corresponding display device, the timepiece (3) being characterized in that the finger (4; 4a) is friction fitted onto the drive wheel (2; 2a).

  • Patent number: 8982674
    Abstract: The invention relates to a device for correcting a time indication given by a display mechanism for a timepiece of the type comprising a first display member, comprising: a winding stem arranged to occupy at least one time indication correction position A, a pinion coupled in rotation to the winding stem, a correction motion transfer connected kinematically to the pinion when the stem is occupying the correction position A, and a correction wheel assembly engaging with the display member and operated by the correction motion transfer. According to the invention, the correction motion transfer is formed by a ring having an internal circumference and an external circumference, at least one of which is provided with teeth meshing at least indirectly with said correction wheel assembly.

  • Patent number: 8483015
    Abstract: The invention concerns an AM/PM display disc (1), rotating in one day about an axis of rotation (2), including two different juxtaposed surfaces (3, 4). It is characterized in that the surfaces are delimited, between a hub (5) and the periphery (6) of said disc (1) by two boundary curves (7, 8), each tangential to said periphery (6) and having a single concavity from said periphery (6) towards said hub (5), the concavities of said curves (7, 8) having the same direction relative to the direction of rotation (A) of said disc (1), and any radial line originating from said axis (2) intersecting, in succession, one of said two surfaces, then the other, and only passing through one of said curves between said hub (5) and said periphery (6).

  • Patent number: 7731416
    Abstract: During normal use, the time indicator (2) is driven by a mechanism (3) controlled by the gear train (4) of the timepiece. This mechanism is arranged for uncoupling the gear train from the indicator when the time-setting member (1) is actuated, this action causing the indicator to move forward through a step of one hour. The time-setting member includes a push-button (5) which actuates a device (6) that in turn acts on said mechanism (3).

  • Patent number: 7645068
    Abstract: Watch comprising a mechanism (50) for driving a device (1) that displays a time-dependent value, this drive mechanism (50) itself being driven by the movement of the watch, this watch also having at least one first correction element (42) acting on the display device (50) via a clockwork mechanism (2) of the drive mechanism (50), and at least one second correction element (48) acting directly on the device (1) that displays the time-dependent value, the watch being characterised in that the drive mechanism (50) is arranged so as to drive the device (1) that displays a time-dependent value in both directions when the first correction element (42) is operated, and so as to be overridden when the second correction element (48) is operated, acting directly on the device (1) that displays a time-dependent value.

  • Patent number: 7625116
    Abstract: Timepiece including a two-directional correction mechanism for a device displaying a time related quantity, the display device being actuated by a control lever (14) itself controlled by a cam (10), on which the control lever (14) abuts, the timepiece being characterized in that it includes a correction device (36) activated by a control stem (42) which, in the display device correction phase, via a return lever (24), moves the control lever (14) out of the path of the cam (10) on which said control lever (14) normally abuts in the normal operating phase of the timepiece (3).
