20th Anniversary “Caliber 20″

Written by: rgmdesigns | Published on: January 21, 2013

Our Third in-house movement “Caliber 20″ is our first with a Motor Barrel.  Top grade American railroad watches from the past had a “Motor Barrel” , models like the Illinois Bunn Special , Hamilton 950 , and others from great American Watch Brands.

The “Motor Barrel” is an American invention and was used only on the highest grade models. The benefit of the design is that is reduces friction and wear in the mainspring barrel bearing surfaces, thus transmitting power more efficiently.

It was a natural choice to incorporate the “Motor Barrel” in our new in-house movement.
