Power Flow

As a watchmaker it's important to understand how power is transmitted in a watch.  This enables one to more easily troubleshoot problems that may arise in the system.

A common question that comes up on tests in class and in certification exams deal with how power is transmitted in a watch.  Sometimes it's difficult to create a mental picture of these systems as they are condensed and typically inhabit 2 sides of the watch.

For visualization and study I have constructed a flow chart which is helpful in understanding the movement of power in the system.  This particular chart is for a 2824-2 and watches of similar design sans the automatic and calendar systems.
