Valuable secrets – treasures are kept safe and hidden inside a fascinating and impressive precision pendulum clock. According to Greek legend, the ancient, Anatolian city of Troy (Troja) was outsmarted by Greek warriors. Hidden in the stomach of a wooden horse, they were able to get behind the fortified city walls undiscovered and, following their clever deception, conquered the city. The Troja 16 M precision pendulum clock owes its name to this historic example because its body also conceals some secrets.

The base of the clock houses a safe which provides space for all kinds of treasures. To make full use of the depth that is gained here, 16 remote-controlled watch winders are also housed in the rear section of the case. Along with their technology partner, Beluwo®, the Erwin Sattler manufacture has developed new, large wristwatch-holders which provide enough space for larger timepieces. Each unit is equipped with its own precision motor and can be individually programmed using a Bluetooth Interface with any smartphone or tablet. The Troja 16 M is equipped with the extraordinary movement from the Classica Secunda 1995, whose silver-plated dial emphasises the value of the lovingly handcrafted, domed hands. The pendulum, at a stately length of approximately one metre, swings once every second in an elegant and calming cadence.

The Troja is available with four different movements: Troja 16 M with the movement from the Classica Secunda 1995, Troja Lunaris M with the movement from the Secunda Lunaris, Troja Sonata M with the movement from the Secunda Sonata, Troja Opus Temporis with the movement from the Opus Temporis.
