after 5 years? HW or Felix.
If it is HW , will they be capable to handle it?
This watch looks like a difficult piece to service should there be anything wrong
in future and I would love to know who can one turns to.

Greetings friend!

HWRT is already about to have its own fully functioning and supporting factory..more news later.

Opus devices like the Opus 5 specifically, is not a difficult to service or repair machine, like a minute repeater, but....both HWRT and the URWERK folk are more than capable. And in 100 years if they are NOT around, the Opus 5 will be serviceable...such is the beauty of its design...it has no " ridiculously difficult to manufacture" parts inside. More importantly, the Opus 5 is a watch that does not have "breakable" parts..more likely it needs lubrication, and if dropped on the floor...reallignments.

Thank goodness that unlike cars, watches don't use combustion or high voltages as a source of power. These will damage or go out of date.

Spring driven machines using the tension of a metal coil...these will last forever. I just had a 300 year old clock with a unique balance, restored...so..the Opus 5 is almost "simple" to the experienced watchmaker.

Yes INDEED. I suspect this is a piece from the NY itself.
