OUR OPENER IS THE STORY
OF THE BURAN MICRO ROTOR

A TRUE RARE COLLECTORS MASTERPIECE:

A Serviced , Running 1958 Hamilton
Masterpiece Thin-O-Matic MicroRotor Automatic
w/Gold Filled One Piece Case, Two Piece Stem

RESTORED BY ROCK 2004

THINOMATIC

“Micro-rotor movements are aesthetically pleasing and Buren was the first company to introduce them.

BUREN succeeded in making a very thin, very accurate automatic movement by employing revolutionary mechanisms that functioned reasonably well in a variety of different levels of execution and elaboration, IT BEING THE MICRO ROTOR>>>>>>

 
THE MICRO ROTOR IS THE SMALL ROTOR WITH 1/2 ROTOR
THIS ROTOR TURNED WITH MOVEMENT WINDINGMAIN SPRING
YOU WILL NOTE THAT IT IS LEVEL WITH BRIDGES. NOT LIKE THE LARGE 360 ROTOR THAT REQUIRED MOUNTING ON TOP
AND A THICKER CASE/CASE BACK .

THIS Buren powered Thin-O-Matic mades for an interesting, RARE horological significant addition to any watch collection.” The first ever micro-rotor automatic watch movement was patented by Uhrenfabrik Büren A.G in the mid 50s.

Their “planetary rotor” automatic movement was released in 1957 in the “Super Slender” line, it was one of the flattest automatics of its time. It and it’s derivatives competed with the Universal Geneva micro-rotor for thinnest automatic in the world for many years.

THEN CAME UNIVERSAL GENEVA POLEROUTER

A shortcut by some thousand kilometers from Europe to California (USA) was implemented by the airline SAS (Scandinavian Airline System). These new routes were over the North Pole. UNIVERSAL GENEVE Provided the crews with automatic precision wrist-watches that were resistent against the strong magnetic field of the polar region. tHEY WERE TITLED THE "POLEROUTER/POLAROUTER"  FOR THE FLIGHTS ACROSS THE NORTH POLE...

On the 15th November 1954 at 19:18 local time the "Helge Viking" (OY-KMI) took off in Copenhagen for the first commercial flight over the North Pole (flight number SK 931). Final destination was Los Angeles (USA). along with offical crew watches, titled the Universal Geneve Pole Router /POLAROUTER signifying the flight ROUTE over the NORTH POLE.

A Polerouter had always the status of a high-quality luxurious watch. In the late 1950's a steel Polerouter costs as much as a Rolex Explorer. A Polerouter Date in 18 k gold with a gold bracelet had nearly the same price as a Volkswagen Beetle.

In 1957 SAS inaugurated the transpolar service Copenhagen- Anchorage -Tokyo with the new Boeing DC-7 C. The flying time was reduced from 52 to 32 hours. By tying together the southern route and the polar route, SAS had earned the right to put "First over the pole and around the world" over the door on its DC-7 C's.

But a new era was coming closer - the jet age. Very quickly the new jets like the SE-210 Caravelle and the Douglas DC-8-33 replaced the older propeller machines....
