THE FINE ART OF CLOCK-MAKING – TECHNICAL DETAIL AND UNCOMPROMISING DESIGN MERGE SEAMLESSLY IN A CLASSIC-MODERN TIMEPIECE FROM ERWIN SATTLER

It takes an average of two years to manufacture all the individual components of a precision pendulum clock. Handmade in exclusive small-batch series of no more than ten pieces, the clocks clearly show the deep-rooted link with tradition and the passion for detail that contribute to their high quality. The Classica Secunda 1995 is an impressive example of Erwin Sattler furthering its great tradition for precision pendulum clocks.

The design of the Classica Secunda 1995 is dominated by a cutaway dial for seconds, which allows a view of the goldplated gear wheels. Other fine details are the star-shaped stainless steel escape wheel bridge and the poire hands – meticulously domed, polished and blue tempered by hand. A glass pane in the top allows light to enter the case and illuminate the inner workings from above. Precious woods encase the high-precision movement and round off the piece as a timeless work of art. With its 30-day movement and ability to keep time with an accuracy drift of around one to two seconds per month, the Classica Secunda 1995 is also a technical triumph. The Graham escapement with jewel pallets ensures a constant transmission of energy to the pendulum. Gold-plated wheels, arbors made from special Swedish steel, five ball bearings and 11 jewel bearings in two base plates crafted in four-millimetre-thick hard brass increase the efficiency and longevity of this “clock for generations”.
