Progress Watch to present START at BASELWORLD

Progress Watch Corporation, announces that three exclusive, high-end, luxury watch brands will present highly innovative finished watch concepts using a further development of the Progress Watch START “See-through Triple Axis Rotating Tourbillon” movement at the world's two premier watch and jeweler shows, BASELWORLD 2008, Basel, Switzerland (the largest and most important Swiss watch fair) and during the prestigious SIHH (Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie) exhibition in Geneva, Switzerland in early April (for the most exclusive, luxury watch manufacturers).

Further versions of the Progress Watch START movement featuring additional functions and special movement design options are presently in final development. These expanded designs have been engineered to satisfy different luxury watch brands' demand for customized movements.

The Progress Watch START tourbillon mechanism completes a full rotation around the outer frame every 12 or 24 hours, depending on design. The inner dial indicates minutes and makes a full rotation every 60 minutes while moving with the entire mechanism along the outer circle. If desired, seconds can be indicated directly on the movement's cage (centerpiece).

The hour pointer (shown in illustration with the red jewel – far left), indicates the hour on the outer dial, without the need for hands. Removing the need for hands allows the entire START mechanism to be viewable from both sides, creating the first “see-through” tourbillon watch.

The precision mechanical movements are entirely manufactured in Switzerland and meet the highest standards of the “Haute Horlogerie” brands.

Progress Watch Corporation is a company dedicated to independently provide high end, innovative, reliable, stable, flexible and unique Swiss made mechanical watch movements to the elite of the Swiss watch industry.
