A Huygens clock is a thoughtful one as they have a considerate movement that works in complete silence. Using incredibly good materials combined with the best movements you get a clock that honors the life of Christiaan Huygens himself. Christiaan Huygens can be considered the father of clocks as in 1656 he invented the pendulum as a timekeeping element. The pendulum rapidly became the personification of an accurate timepiece and for many years no clock was considered precise without one. Huygens was a leading scientist of his time and was always searching for the next best thing much like Huygens today. Accurate, durable and innovative our clocks keep the time beautifully.
