[origin: FR2763710A1] The invention concerns a device (10) mounted in a timepiece and comprising means (12) generating a variable inductive magnetic current consisting of a mobile member (30) including a part made in material conducting the inductive magnetic current and a part non-conducting said current. The device comprises means detecting (13) the variable inductive magnetic current, means (14) processing signals derived from said detecting means and means (15) controlling the timepiece functions. Said device enables the control of a timepiece without requiring an element passing through the case, such that the timepiece can be sealed.
