About the Collection

For the jubilee twentieth anniversary of the renewal of the brand PRIM on the Czech market, we have created a limited edition of watches PRIM Tourbillon Orloj 1410. We took inspiration from the Prague astronomical clock, which was one of the genial machines of its time, and which has perfectly displayed time for centuries. Time is the dimension that connects PRIM and the plague astronomical clock. Prague astronomical clock has been renewed many times and has always managed to find somebody who managed to “revive” it just as is the history with the brand PRIM. Just as we all can admire this extraordinary historical and technical sight, so can you admire a model of this collection. Limited edition has only 40 pieces for the true enthusiasts.

Prague astronomical clock

Astronomical clock, a genial machine, which has for centuries shown not only time and date, but also the position of the Sun, phases of the Moon, astronomical cycles and the Christian holidays. Technical miracle which has been astonishing the whole world for 600 years. The old-town square astronomical clock is a part of the South wall of the Old-town city hall in Prague. It was built in 1410 by Mikulas of Kadan. The famous story of mistr Hanus, who built the Prague astronomical clock and whose eyes were struck out afterwards so that he couldn’t re-create the creation, is not based on truth. The fact is, that by the end of the 15th century, mistr Hanus (whose name has been identified by the historians as the clock-maker Jan Růže) repaired the astronomical clock – put it into operation again. Nothing has been written about the councillors blinding him afterwards.

The astronomical clock stopped in 1787 and according to the councillors, it was supposed to end up in an ironworks, but, still, it was partly repaired. It definitively stopped in 1824 and nobody could repair it then, so it was decided that it would be destroyed. But all ended up well, when in 1865 a clock-maker was found who could put life back into the difficult mechanism. It was Ludvík Hainz, whose shop was right opposed to the astronomical clock and he was watching the sad status of the clock for years. He was a councillor and it was his initiative that lead towards the so-called big repair and reconstruction, during the years 1864-1866. Afterwards, his son, Ludvík Hainz II. has become the keeper of the clock and he installed a manufacturing of the tower clock.

About the watch

The Prague astronomical clock is an astrolabe and most definitely the most famous, historically important time-measuring machine in the Czech republic, so it is an ideal source of inspiration for the anniversary model of wrist watches. If the famous astrolabe that has been said to had been created around the year 1410, does not have a round-figure birthday, then the creator of its look-alike in the form of wrist watches does. It celebrates 20 years since the rebirth of the brand PRIM in its company. Forty numbered pieces have been created in cases made of steel, with lunettes with yellow, rose or white gold. Four colourful variants have similar elements on their dials. It is the font of the numbers inspired by the Prague astronomical clock, both on the minute hand rotating on the outer circumference and on which the central hand points, and on the counter on position 12. There, a small hand shows the time. It is a combination of regulator and tourbillon. Its cage turns once in a minute on the position of 6 hours and the halo around it is completed with symbols of moon signs similar to those on the astrolabe from the 15th century. The minute hand passes by 10 indexes that portray 10-minute intervals with stones- diamonds, rubies and sapphires, which depends on the version of the watches. All that is completed with a tulip crown created by the designers of the company, with a stone on its top.

An aperture on the position of 6 hours allows for their owners to watch the work of the calibre Sea-Gull TY806 of the edition TY8 which offers in total 14 machines and finishes, including those with automatic winding or retrograde portrayal of time. The used machine has a manual winding, diameter 30 mm and height 5,1 mm. It is symbolic that the manufacturer chose tourbillon because they applaud the inventor of this royal complication, Abraham-Luis Bregeut, who exactly 220 years ago (1801) received a patent for his “wind.” Complication is protected by a hairspring of the machine against the Earth’s magnetism and positional errors. Triple celebration.

Technology

Tourbillon TY86 is a mechanic, that compensates the impact of gravity on the accuracy of the operation of the watches. It is a mechanical anchoring machine placed inside of a moving platform with a balance wheel in the middle and it rotates against its own axis once every minute. This ensures the change of position of the balance wheel against the Earth’s core. It is one of the so called complications of high clock-makers’ job – Haute Horlogerie. It was invented by A. L. Breguet in 1795. Watches with tourbillon are offered only by high-quality horological brands and it is one of the signs of a quality of any brand.
