Dear Partners in the world,

Basel Fair was so far successful but also manifested the difficulties regarding the availability of mechanical movements made in Switzerland.

This means, that we – as many other brand - are confronted with a total new situation and that we have to align our brand strategy and assortment politics completely. Its unknown how long Angular Momentum will be in the position to deliver watches with ETA or ETA based mechanical movements.

Although we have expected such difficulties for the future, we have never expected it to come so quickly and in such a dimension. However, AM has early started to work on its own movement calibers.

The microrotor movement Caliber AM.101 has been completed by April 2007. Since it is a complicated concept only 100 to 120 pieces a year can be manufactured in maximum. They will be sold as exclusive “en suite” decorated “art” movements only.

At the end of the day, Angular Momentum had to find a fast alternative solution. This week we have finished prototyping of our new standard manufacturer movement the Caliber AM.102-1 which we have planned to bring out in a year or two. Its a beautiful 13 lines hand-winding movement in its first version. We shall be finishing the production of this movement within shortest possible time.

Some remarkable corrections of the current collections and models as well as the retail prices are the result of this situation. From this point, only Angular Momentum time pieces will be available with the Caliber AM.102-1.

We will keep you frequently informed on the process

For any question please don’t hesitate to contact us at any time

Sincerely yours

Martin Pauli
Angular Momentum of Switzerland
