Two types of quantum measurements, measuring the spins of an entangled pair and attempting to measure a spin at either of two positions, are analysed dynamically by apparatuses of the Curie-Weiss type. The outcomes comply with the standard postulates.This article is part of the themed issue 'Second quantum revolution: foundational questions'.

Keywords: dynamical models; quantum measurement; simultaneous measurements.
