The ethyl chloride vaporises into an expansion chamber as the temperature rises, compressing a spiral spring; with a fall in temperature the gas condenses and the spring slackens.

So I did look him up. Ingenious!

I wish this was my daily job! I am a chemical engineer,we have several family owned companies (youngest company is 28 years old). I got hooked up into watches at a very early age, and have been fortunate to know many people in the industry. Everything I do, it comes with passion....so now my hobby brings me to the watch/luxury industries....I admit, I LOVE IT!!!!! (posting what I am doing this week as I finish....not watches but....well....stay tuned)
