Mauthe Motor-rewind Movement

Mauthe Motor Wound Movement

This Mauthe (type W370) motor wound movement from Germany uses a motor and worm drive to wind a spiral spring which powers a pin pallet balance wheel movement. When the spring is fully wound, a lever is moved by a pin on the first gear wheel which pulls the motor armature out of the motor housing by a small amount, thus disengaging the brushes of the motor. After a few minutes, when the spring has run down, another pin releases the lever and allows the motor armature to retract into the motor body and make contact with the brushes again. This is a very well made movement with jewelled bearings for the balance wheel.
Voltage: 1.5v
Battery type: one LR14/MN1400/C size cell
