To reduce its reliance on suppliers abroad, Swiss Technology Production (STP) has declared that it will produce nearly all of its components domestically. This decision will not only provide the business more options when it comes to selecting suppliers and components, but it will also enable them to offer fresh iterations of high-quality finishes.
The business has also chosen to alter the technical aspects of its barrel in addition to this alteration (mainspring). According to the press announcement, many of their clients have indicated that they prefer more power over power reserve, and STP has chosen to move from 44H to 41H while simultaneously enhancing accuracy values in response to this feedback.
STP will be offering two versions of their movements: the "Standard" version and the "Elabore Soigne" version. The Standard version will feature a basic sandblasted finish with rhodium finishing and a decorated rotor. The Elabore Soigne version will feature full decorated bridges with rhodium, blue screws, and a decorated rotor. It's worth noting that these changes will be applied to the company's entire portfolio, with the exception of the STP2-12. The Skeleton version will only be available in the Standard version.
The company's website will be updated on January 15th 2023 with more technical information about these changes.
About the STP1-11 movement used by pOrtahl
In addition to the modifications described in the news release, the STP1-11 movement will be replaced by the STP1-21 in the company's production line. The accuracy, power, and power reserve of the STP1-21 will be drastically different from the STP1-11, which will have a power reserve of 40 hours as opposed to 44 hours.
This adjustment demonstrates the company's ongoing commitment to innovation and development. End users will benefit from improved performance and greater dependability thanks to the STP1-21 movement. The power reserve is decreased to 40 hours as a result of the increase in strength and accuracy. The new style seeks to satisfy the diverse needs and tastes of their customers.
It will be interesting to see how the STP1-21 movement performs in the field and how it is received by customers.
