Limited Edition of 10 Pieces

On the tenth anniversary of the founding of its own manufacture in Glashütte, Wempe is launching the Precision Pendulum Clock 5/6 PPU. Limited edition wall clock is a tribute to the Glashütte Observatory and was accordingly built with a classic complication. As was common in observatories in the past, the precision pendulum clock operates with a regulator mechanism that consistently guarantees a minimal deviation of rate of only three to four seconds per month for 30 days. With this precision, it outdoes even German wristwatch chronometers.

The wooden cabinet has black piano lacquer (13 coats), metal inlays, handcrafted and blued stainless-steel hands, silver-plated dial, an AR-coated sapphire crystal and a mineral display back.

The base movement is a German Sattler caliber 2005 with 4 jewels. It operates with two aneroid capsules that control a temperature and air-pressure compensated pendulum, a Strasser pendulum cylinder of invar with a pulley and a power-maintaining mechanism and a weight on the loose pulley. Thanks to this sophisticated mechanism, including eight precision ball bearings and a dead-beat lever escapement with two agate pallet-stones, the wall clock has a 30-day power reserve. During this time, it deviates only three to four seconds per month.

On the auxiliary dial with Arabic numerals, which is positioned at twelve o'clock, the second hand ticks six steps in five seconds as a consequence of a shorter pendulum. This mechanical peculiarity gives the clock its name: 5/6-second precision pendulum clock. Below that, an auxiliary dial at six o'clock indicates the hour with Roman numerals. The minutes are shown at the center by an especially long hand. The domed and blued hands have all been crafted manually.

MSRP is 14,750 Euros. Available at all Wempe branches worldwide starting in October 2016.

Thanks for the info Jorge and TZ.
