It´s all in the details

With the model Hevelius, the story of Eugen Wegner should now find a new start. Named after the pocket watch that sealed the resumption of the family business, the Hevelius was designed as a classic 3-hand movement with a small second hand. To meet today's usual accuracy and comfort, an automatic movement is used. Elements such as the dial and hands were developed close to the model of the pocket watch and underline the idea of continuing earlier activities and continuing the high expectations of quality and design. Refinements such as sun cut, engravings, as well as the polishing and blueing of the screws are carried out with great attention to detail and under the highest standards of quality in the Eugen Wegner watchmaker's workshop in Hamburg. The characteristic crown rounds off the appearance of the Hevelius.

HEVELIUS MADE IN GERMANY
In order to meet the high demands of our watches, we finish and refine our movements at the highest level in-house. These include, among others: Grinding on the rotors, engravings and screws, which we polish and blueing. Each watch is fully assembled in our workshop in Hamburg and undergoes a strict quality control before shipping.

The screws

Every single screw is pre-polished on a lapidating machine with diamond-studded polishing paper in a grain size of 9-0,5μm. To remove even the finest scratches, they are polished again by hand. Finally, the screws are thoroughly cleaned and thermally blued at approx. 300°C. The blue colour not only looks beautiful, it also serves as protection against corrosion.

The sun cut

We manufacture our sun cut with a precision lathe. The grinding wheel (in our case a milling cutter) is aligned at a certain angle to the workpiece. The grinding wheel and the workpiece are brought together during the production of the grinding by rotating in opposite directions

The engravings

The engravings are designed and drawn by us in house. They are then transferred to the workpiece on an engraving machine using a diamond engraving needle.
