Abstract

Le mécanisme de sonnerie (1) d'une montre comprend un timbre (21), qui est fixé par une de ses extrémités à un porte-timbre (22) solidaire d'une platine, un marteau (2) monté rotatif sur la platine pour venir frapper le timbre (21) en des instants prédéterminés, un contre-ressort amortisseur (5) pour maintenir le marteau à distance du timbre (21) dans un mode de repos, et un ressort (3) d'entraînement du marteau. The striking mechanism (1) for a watch comprises a stamp (21) which is fixed by one of its ends to a stamp holder (22) secured to a platen, a hammer (2) rotatably mounted on the plate to strike the stamp (21) at predetermined instants, one against spring damper (5) for holding the hammer remote from the stamp (21) in an idle mode, and a spring (3) for driving the hammer. Le ressort d'entraînement comprend une extrémité (3b) fixée sur la platine et une extrémité libre de mouvement (3a). The drive spring comprises an end (3b) fixed to the plate and a free end of motion (3a). Le ressort est susceptible d'être armé pour que l'extrémité libre (3a) du ressort entraîne le marteau (2) contre le timbre (21) dans un mode de sonnerie pour produire un son acoustique. The spring is capable of being equipped to the free end (3a) of the spring drives the hammer (2) against the patch (21) in a ring pattern to produce an acoustic sound. Le mécanisme de sonnerie comprend encore une butée (10) sur le trajet du ressort d'entraînement du marteau en direction du timbre pour augmenter la vitesse de frappe suite au contact d'une partie intermédiaire du ressort d'entraînement (3) en action contre la butée. The striking mechanism further comprises a stop (10) on the route of the drive spring of the hammer towards the patch for increasing the typing speed due to contact an intermediate portion of the drive spring (3) Action against stop.
