En manuell Wyler Incaflex från sent 60-tal med box och prislapp kvar. 17 juvelers nyservat verk med Paul Wylers patenterade unika stötsäkring Incaflex.

Från Wyler Geneves hemsida:

”In order to clearly demonstrate the benefits of Wyler’s revolution for such a small but crucial component in a watch, a simple demonstration was organised in 1956. In an early form of publicity stunt, two Wyler Incaflex timepieces were dropped 300 metres (almost 1000 feet) from the top of the Eiffel Tower. The notary public chronicling this audacious event confirmed that both timepieces were in excellent working order even after their harsh landing. This was a clear indication that the Wyler Incaflex balance wheel represented a major breakthrough in the watch industry.

In 1962, a large crowd witnessed a similar test, when the USA’s state of Washington’s Seattle Tower served as the stage from which six Wyler Incaflex timepieces were dropped 318 feet to the ground below. Once more, a notary public confirmed that the function of the watches was unaffected by their fall.”
