Het merk Earnshaw kan vervangen worden door “brand X”.
Some going back to the Beagle - how Swiss Made is it? I don’t have all the details, but I wanted to get the the bottom of the movement. The movement is mechanical, an automatic, and skeletonized. For the price it looks pretty good. An answer from Earnshaw revealed that it is supplied by a Swiss company called Inter T SA. Their website is surprisingly straightforward. They indicate that they started as a result of ETA reducing supply of their movements and to help fill in the gap of Swiss Made watch movements. To make a long story short, the movements are technically Swiss Made. The necessary value is from Switzerland, and the rest of the parts likely come from China. And to be honest that isn’t very uncommon. Some of the more important parts such as the hairspring come from Switzerland.
Again for the money it isn’t bad at all. I’ve seen much worse movements in timepieces at this price, and most people wanting a cool skeletonized automatic movement will be quite happy with it. The level of skeletonization is impressive, but what I like is that wearing it doesn’t feel like a window to your arm hair. While you can technically see through the entire case, there is more than enough bridges, gears, and springs to look at which offer the main view as opposed to your manly wrist underneath. Note that the skeletonized mainspring barrel serves as a quasi power reserve indicator, because you can see how wound the mainspring is.
