» The quartz movements that equip our clocks are manufactured by the company UhrenTechnik Schwarzwald Montageservice GmbH which is located in Germany.
Over the years, these precision quartz mechanisms have proved their reliability (DIN 8325 with a precision of less than 1 second per day).
They are powered by a 1.5V LR6 battery. Alkaline High Energy models are recommended for a greater autonomy (> 2 years).
High level quartz movements
The UTS movements are perfectly inaudible to the extent that they remain perfectly silent less than 5 cm. In fact, our creations can be installed in rooms where silence is a constraint.
They are mounted onto the dial thanks to a Design fastening system which preserves all the aesthetics of our creations in contrast with the whole majority of clocks where fixing is provided using a visible and unsightly nut.
Special assemblies can be proposed with radio-controlled mechanisms that comply with the DCF77 standard, a technique based on the cyclical reception of a radio signal transmitted from Germany that is tuned to an atomic clock. These mechanisms which have 2 engines allow an automatic summer/winter time changeover.
Our large clocks (80 cm) are equiped with High Torque mechanisms that can control large size hands.
Customized decorations / clocks can be proposed with these different types of movements. A pendulum quartz movement model is also available.
The hands that are mounted on our standard clocks are lacquered aluminum and also come from a German supplier specialized in watchmaking.
We have in fact eliminated from the outset any quartz movements supplied by Asian manufacturers that equip 95% of the clocks that are sold in Europe, including those released by some major manufacturers. The quality of our creations remains the key word.
All our mechanisms are guaranteed for 3 years.
Short runs (>50) can be supplied. Feel free to contact us.
