The invention relates to a device for attaching watch band to watches, as well as to the corresponding bracelets watches and is particularly suitable for user-friendly quick-change bracelet. In General, the device of the invention applies to any valuable object in the form of watches, jewelry, compass, or another type that requires a reliable, convenient and aesthetically pleasing fastening with bracelet, necklace or any other devices. In the following text for clarity it will be called "the bracelet".

The document CH 662033 describes the first solution for the connection of the bracelet with the watch, based on the lock installed on both sides of the watch and the bracelet, each of the two parts which has a clip on one end. This bracket is inserted into the lock on the clock. The advantage of this solution is its simplicity and speed when using. The first disadvantage is that you want add to watch these two fixing locks, which significantly alter the aesthetic appearance of the watch and can not be connected with each type of hours. The second drawback of this solution stems from the fact that the bracelet is not quite securely attached to the watch. This solution does not guarantee that the watch accidentally detach from the bracelet.

The document FR 2732786 describes another solution to to the Alenia bracelet to the watch, based on the bracelet, which has an eyelet on the end, so constructed that they went through it a rod placed in the slot provided on the end face of the watch. This decision, as well as many of his well-known in the technique of embodiments of lack, as they require rod between the bracelet and hours, resulting in a risk that the rod will be lost during the installation and removal of the bracelet. In addition, the solution described in this patent, the rod is simply inserted into the socket, and may accidentally fall. In order to reduce this disadvantage, the implementation of another variant based on similar threaded rods that attach to the hours of screwing up. However, their disadvantage is the complexity, since they require the use of the tool and does not provide a simple, user-friendly replacement of the bracelet.

Document WO 0057250, finally, describes the third solution known from the prior art that describes a watch with interchangeable parts that make possible the connection of the case, frame, glass, watches and bracelet with intermediate parts. This detail is not always suitable for attaching the bracelet to the watch. It has a large size in comparison with the clock and not to all types of constructions hours is suitable. In addition, the means of closing the Assembly of the complex and unreliable, as they t about, allow items to be inserted into a groove that is the risk of jamming after any wear.

Therefore, there is a need for another solution for attaching the bracelet to the watch, which does not have the above disadvantages.

Consequently, the first objective of the present invention is a reliable, user-friendly device for attaching the bracelet to the watch, allowing the bracelet to be replaced due to the simplicity of the operation.

The second objective of the present invention consists in a device for fastening the bracelet to the watch, which is a compact, aesthetically pleasing and compatible with all types of watches.

The third objective of the present invention is the device for attaching the bracelet to the watch, which is not expensive.

In accordance with the concept of the invention, the mounting device is based on locking part comprising a socket for a bracelet, this locking part is driven by a separate control device, which is easy to implement, and the intermediate latch is able to maintain a steady "closed" position, corresponding to the closed position of the shut-off details.

The invention in more detail is defined in the claims.

These goals, differences and advantages of the present invention will be described in detail in the following description private, neog anichimouski with reference to the accompanying drawings, on which:

figure 1 shows a perspective view of the watch and bracelet in accordance with one implementation of the present invention;

In accordance with one embodiment of the invention watches 1 c are connected bracelet 3 mounting device 2. The latter relies on the locking part 4, pivotally connected to the axle 5, which forms the socket 6, in which the rod 7 located stationary on the end of the bracelet 3. This locking part 4 is in contact with the latch 8 is essentially triangular in shape with rounded corners, one corner of which has a part in the form of a hook 9, which interacts with a groove 10 on the locking part 4 and prevents its rotation and its opening. Latch 8 includes another rounded corner 11 in contact part 12 o'clock, on cotrollable locking part 4 with the possibility of rotation around the axis 5, which serves as a rotation axis of the latch. Finally, the latch includes a third rounded the back corner 13 in contact with the control device 14 of the latch. In detail, the operation of this mechanism will be described below.

As shown in figa and 3b, this mounting device is located at the ends of the clock 1, and the locking part 4 is slightly protrudes in the longitudinal direction corresponding to the longer sides of the rectangular watchcase. It is installed on the bottom side of the watch as well as its control device having a button shape, elongated in the transverse direction. The location of this type improves the aesthetic appearance of the upper side of the watch and makes it possible to position the elements of the mechanism separately on the bottom side. This also makes it possible to avoid unintentional actuation of this mechanism.

As further shown in figure 4, watch 1 includes a conventional multilevel placement of the dial, glasses, connections, and the rim of the glass on the housing 30.

The upper middle part 31 includes the tabs of the brackets 12 on each end, designed for installation of locking parts 4 on the rotary axis 5 of the device mounting bracelet and the case 30 includes a transverse slot, which combines other elements of this device.

This combination of elements includes trace the matter of the elements in the following order:

the control device 14 having two elongated holes 17, elongated vertically, allowing for movement to connect it to the body 30 by means of two bolts 19 passing through holes 17 and placed in two threaded part 18 of the housing 30. The control device 14 also includes a Central opening 20 in which is mounted the rear convex part 13 of the latch 8;

the latch 8, which is mounted to rotate on an axis 15, corresponding essentially its upper rounded corner 11, mentioned above, is installed in the slot 16 of the housing 30 hours;

two small flexible rod 21, is placed in the two holes on the front of the latch above the hook portion 9 of the latch. This part 9 communicates with the groove or the groove 10 on the end of the locking part 4, while the rods 21 interact with the top surface of the locking part 4.

The operation of this device 2 for fixing with replacement bracelet 3 hours to 1 will be described below with reference to figure 5 and 6.

Figure 5 shows the longitudinal section hours, i.e. in the direction of the bracelet and the larger side of the rectangular housing, in a plane passing through the clock in the center of the bolts 19 of the control device 14 of each cross-device mounting. Figure 6 shows the longitudinal section in another plane, PA the allelic previous plane, through the middle of the latches 8 on each side of the watch. In these two drawings, the locking device 2A on the left is in the open position, while the locking device 2b on the right is shown in the closed position.

Essentially triangular latch 8, thus, includes an upper rounded corner 11, which corresponds to the axis 15, to rotate the latch relative to the clock, rear lower end 13, which communicates with the control button 14, and the front lower end 9, which interacts with a locking item 4.

In the closed position, the upper edge of the axis 15 of the latch touches the bracket 12 hours, the end 13 is in the lowest position as well as control device 14, United with it, and its end 9 is in the highest position, while holding the locking part 4 in the closed position with its hook, who came into the groove 10 of its end in its closed position. The control device 14, thus, occupies its lowest position, and the bolt 19 touches the upper surface of the vertical elongated holes 17. This closed position is a stable position. Indeed, in this position, the moment created by the weight of the locking part 4, acting on the latch at the level of the hook 9, is almost zero, as it is very close to the rotary axis 15, and the shape of the latch 8, the person is but as far as the top of the rounded part 11, and the distribution of its weight determines the stable closed position of the latch and requires a certain value of efforts to make its turn.

Moving to the open position is achieved by the move buttons up, which provides its shift due to the elongation of the oblong holes 17 and the cavity 22 provided in the housing 30. It moves up control device 14 may till then, while the bottom surface of the oblong holes 17 will not come in contact with the bolt 19. This shift transmits the force to the end 13 of the latch 8, which causes its rotation around the axis 15, causing the rotation of the hook 9. Form of latch is provided such that the upper position of the control device 14 allows the hook 9 to leave the grooves 10 of the locking part 4 and to release her. At the same time, the rod 21 on the upper surface of the locking part 4, causing her to turn down her opening, allowing you to grab it manually to continue the move to open it in order to achieve the socket 6 for retrieval and/or installation in the slot of the rod 7 of the bracelet.

The locking part 4 is closed by bringing the locking part in the action manually by pressing up. This pressure causes the locking part 4 touch the rods 21, which causes the latch 8 to rotate in the closing direction, at the same time POPs the Lord moves down control device 14. The rounded shape of the upper part 11 of the latch 8 is such that the force required to close the gate, again relatively small. But to close it completely, finished moving the locking parts requires the application of a greater force, which causes instantaneous rotation of the latch in the closed stable position, followed by a click, which indicates to the user that the locking part is really closed again.

This device is shown in the example locking part installed on the protrusion 12 hours 1. However, a similar device can be turned completely inside the volume of hours with the placement of the axis 5 at one end hours. Thus, this solution can be adapted to the hours of various types, for example round, and various popular options for aesthetic location.

The control device is installed on the bottom side of the watch, almost not protruding beyond the surface, which gives the advantages of invisible, not to create problems in the conventional aesthetic of the watch, at the same time protecting it from accidental actuation. However, this concept of the invention can be used when installing this unit on top.

Similarly, the locking element may open in a direction different from that shown in the example, and protect the LCA may have a different shape to perform similar functions.

Finally, the described device mounting relates to the fastening of the bracelet to the watch. In the described embodiment, it is located completely on the watch, the bracelet has only terminal to perform fastening according to the invention. However, as an alternative for all or some of these functions it can be installed on the end of the bracelet, not hours.
