Glossary of terms:
Côtes de Genève - A decoration of undulating lines, like waves, frequently used to embellish superior quality movements.
Movement Jewels - (In French: empierrer) To set or push fit jewels (ruby bearings) in a watch movement.
Balance - (In French: balancier) A generally circular, moving part which oscillates on its rotational axis. It is coupled to the balance-spring which gives it the to-and-fro motion through which it divides time into strictly equal parts. Each to-and-fro movement ("tick-tock") is called an oscillation, and each oscillation comprises two vibrations.
A circular mass (rim) held by spokes. Combined with the spiral it forms the regulating organ of the watch.
Rotor - A heavy half-disc of metal which the energy produced by the movements of the arm cause to freely rotate inside the case of a self-winding watch. Its own weight returns it to a vertical position. A specific system multiplies its rotations to continually wind the mainspring.
316L stainless steel - Grade 316L, the low carbon version of 316. Used extensively in surgical instrumentation this very high grade steel is commonly refered to as 'Surgical Grade Stainless Steel'.
Guilloché - is an engraving technique in which a very precise intricate repetitive patterns or design is mechanically etched into an underlying material with very fine detail. Specifically, it involves a technique of engine turning, called guilloché in French after the French engineer “Guillot”, who invented a machine “that could scratch fine patterns and designs on metallic surfaces”.
