Calibre Family 89000

Calibre Family 89000

The 89360 calibre, introduced in 2007, was the first manufacture chronograph movement to be completely developed in Schaffhausen. In this movement, the hours and minutes are combined in a totalizer at 12 o’clock. This makes it just as easy to read a stop time of 8 hours and 54 minutes as it is to check the current time. The 89365 version features the stop minutes and seconds function as well as a flyback function. Further developments to the 89800 calibre eventually involved incorporating the big digital date and month display as used, for example, in the Portugieser Perpetual Calendar Digital Date-Month. Other complications can also be found in the 89630 calibre with perpetual calendar and the 89900 with tourbillon. This can be adjusted to the second thanks to a stop mechanism.
