About

Jean Frederic et Julien Humbert Droz
Jean Frederic et Julien Humbert Droz

Après 60 années d'existence  dans le domaine de l'horlogerie la famille Humbert Droz a choisi de réaliser des montres sous sa propre marque. Depuis Juin 2016 celle-ci est lancée grâce à son site internet www.humbert-droz.fr. Nous sollicitons la formule Kikstater pour faire connaitre au-delà de nos frontières le savoir-faire Français et familial de nos produits.

Sur ce modèle le travail a été particulièrement conséquent, nous avons repris l'ensemble des mouvements dans notre atelier.

Notre projet est déjà en stock dans notre atelier, la complexité du mouvement, l' absence de plans techniques car trop ancien ne permettait pas de prendre de risque sur la faisabilité du produit.

C’est pour cela que nous avons fait le choix d’assembler d’abord nos montres, de les tester et  de vendre une partie pour permettre un test grandeur nature. De ce fait nous garantissons à travers ce travail réalisé en amont une garantie de deux ans.

Risks and challenges

Le risque sur ce type de mouvement réside au niveau du calage des disques d’affichage. La tolérance pour la précision de la pose des ces disques est très faible. Nous n’avions plus de plan technique pour ce calage il a donc fallu faire plusieurs essais et tentatives afin de trouver la meilleure formule pour un affichage clair et précis.
Comme indiquez précédemment nous avons privilégié un projet terminé et fonctionnel pour n’avoir aucune mauvaise surprise. Au vu de la complexité du mouvement, il aurait été trop prétentieux de notre part d' affirmer que nous arriverions à réaliser la remise à neuf des mouvements sans essais préalables.
la contrainte de l’affichage en ligne ont rendu la réalisation du boitier compliquée.
L’introduction de loupes sous le verre a augmenté cette difficulté. Nous voulions que celles-ci soient intégrées à l’intérieur du boitier d’une part pour éviter tous désagrément au porté et une lisibilité parfaite et d’autre part pour le design du produit.

The risk on this type of movement lies in the timing of the display disks. The tolerance for the accuracy of the installation of these disks is very low. We had no more technical plan for this calibration so it was necessary to make several attempts and attempts to find the best formula for a clear and precise display.
As previously indicated, we favored a finished and functional project to have no bad surprises. Given the complexity of the movement, it would have been too pretentious for us to say that we could achieve the refurbishment of the movements without prior testing.
the constraint of the online display have made the realization of the box complicated.
The introduction of magnifying glasses under glass has increased this difficulty. We wanted them to be integrated inside the case on the one hand to avoid any unpleasantness and perfect readability and on the other hand for the design of the
