The first clock with a linear equation of time
Astro was first a school project in order to graduate from my BMA (Brevet des métiers d’arts) at the Paris Diderot technological school.
When I was working on the R&D of the watch I had the idea to linearize it and then to add a few more complications. I then had my degree and I presented Astro to the Young talent competition hosted by the AHCI and FP Journe.
It won the award and was unveiled at Baselworld 2016 during a press conference.
This clock gave me the strength and confidence to launch my own brand and TL Watchmaking was born.
Caliber : PDP 00P.
Escapement : Anchor and pendulum.
Jewels : none.
Power reserve : 8 days.
Accuracy : +/- 30 seconds per day
They’re no less than 7!
Apart from displaying hours and minutes, Astro also chimes
Obviously, it has the linear equation of time, an annual calendar with seasons, months, day, solstices and equinoxes, zodiac sign and it had a GMT ring on top of the globe
Astro is 360mm wide and 360mm high.
The case is in cherry wood
The dial is sand blasted brass at the center and circular brushed on the outer ring
The indexes are polished brass and polished stainless steel
The hands feature our exclusive design at TL Watchmaking® and are made of steel with embossed brass in it.
