FINE, ELEGANT LINES – THE SIMPLE DESIGN MAKES THE METRICA A TIMELESSLY BEAUTIFUL TABLE CLOCK THAT INTEGRATES PERFECTLY INTO ANY ENVIRONMENT
Whether used as a desk or mantel clock, whether in the office or surrounded by valuable paintings, the Metrica is an excellent functional accessory. The modern case featuring metal inlays is the result of ongoing development of existing models and the use of contemporary materials.
Working on the basis of a gold-plated gear train developed in the manufacture, the clockmakers have succeeded in realising their vision of a reliable, low-maintenance and durable table clock. The clock is fitted with a mechanical constant-force mechanism comprising a fusee and steel cable, to counter the fact that the driving force stored in the mainspring gradually decreases over the course of the 15-day power reserve period. This is a complex process and it adds a further valuable dimension to the technical complexity of the Metrica timepiece.
But the movement is not just a work of perfection behind the scenes; it can be seen quite clearly through the glazed cases of the case. The Metrica draws the eye directly to the elegantly spoked gear wheels, which are gold-plated to protect against oxidation. A clock with such features fulfils all the requirements of traditional clock-making. It is classic, sober and unobtrusive, though it remains the highlight of any room.
