Test of free fall shock resistance


According to ISO1413-standard, this equpment enables to expose watches to free fall in order to test their shock resistance.


Watch is placed on a pivoting trap door. A spring system enables to fold up the trap door and to avoid any perturbation during the test. Drop height is adjustable from 200 to 1'060 mm.

Equipment is assembled on a cast iron base, which guarantees machine stability and shock repeatability.

This equipment does not require any electric or pneumatic connection. A manually operated trigger enables the user to run the fall.

As an option, a measuring system enables the user to qualify the shocks according to different heights of fall. This measuring system includes an accelerometer, an oscilloscope and an analysis software.
