Description

SWISS AUTOMATIC MOVEMENT

The Generations Pendulum Original: the first self-winding mechanical movement designed by the Fromanteel atelier. Its name is a direct reference to the pendulum clock as made by the Fromanteel clockmakers family in the 1660s.


The Pendulum became known as the world’s most innovative and precise clock – an amazing manifestation of the craftsmanship of that time. The Generations Pendulum is characterized by its ‘Clous de Paris’ patterned dial: a special type of dial guilloche, resulting in small square knobs.

The Blue Steel secondhand owe its color to a unique way of heat threatening to a temperature of 310 C° called ‘tempering’. Rather than relying on a battery for its power, the Generations Pendulum is equipped with a self-winding mechanical movement. The watch is wound by the movement of the wearer’s wrist or by manually winding the crown. By moving the wrist, a small weight is set in motion, which winds a small spring inside the movement. The tension of this spring is then gradually released onto several gear wheels regulating the different hands on your dial. On the back of the Generations Pendulum, there is a small glass window that shows the parts of this process in practice.
