Automisation of Ruhla Calibre 24 Production
Ruhla was the first watch manufacturer to fully automate watch production of its Calibre 24 movement. Automisation started in 1961 with a programme of rationalisation initiated by the East German Government. The programme had several phases and its aim was to progressively increase production targets. Specialist production machinery was developed and this technology was later shared with other people’s enterprises in the German Democratic Republic.
