Classica S 100
DISCREET TICKING, PLEASANT CHIME, HIGH QUALITY AND TIMELESS CLASSIC ELEGANCE – IS A JOY TO BEHOLD
Even in the 19th century, quiet timepieces such as the Classica S 100 were considered absolute rarities among pendulum clocks. Today, clock manufacturer Erwin Sattler has succeeded in resurrecting classic movement design and the outstanding quality associated with the tradition of Vienna movements.
- Power reserve to last one month
- Strike train repetition and silencing
- Extremely slim case
- Small pendulum swing and quiet ticking
- Virtually wear-free operation due to 15 jewel bearings and 8 ball bearings
Of course, the knowledge and possibilities available in manufacturing today mean it is possible to improve even further on the tried-and-tested quality of those days. Precision machines and the use of a total of 14 jewel bearings and eight precision miniature bearings enable virtually wear-free operation and a level of accuracy that could not have been achieved one hundred years ago.
The use of top-quality materials contributes to ensuring the longevity of the Classica S 100 for many generations. Very slim movements and strikingly small weights used to be typical for these precious regulators, and still are now. With its quiet ticking, the elegantly subtle pendulum swing and its wonderfully tuneful half-hourly strike, this sophisticated clock is a particularly fine accessory for the home or office.
