Ultra Prima 15-Jewel Chronometre movement signed Rolex and Swiss made.
Ultra Prima were the highest grade Rolex movements at the time. This movement also has an Elinvar Hairspring. Elinvar is a composite of the French words ELasticité INVARiable meaning elastically invariable. An Elinvar hairspring was used to make a movement even more efficient in timekeeping. The Elinvar metal compound was invented by a Swiss physicist Charles Édouard Guillaume who won the Nobel prize in the 1920’s for his discovery. It resists the effects of temperature change by having temperature compensation and co-efficiency.

Elinvar was used primarily in balance springs for mechanical watches. A major cause of inaccuracy in watches and clocks was that ordinary steels used in springs lost elasticity slightly as the temperature increased, so the balance wheel would oscillate more slowly back and forth, and the clock would lose time. Chronometres and precision watches required complex temperature-compensated balance wheels for accurate timekeeping. Springs made of Elinvar, were not affected by temperature.
