OVALE GIANT

INTRO


Pendullum - Majestically created to perpetuate the tradition of Table Clocks

A BIT OF HISTORY


Carriage clocks are also known in France as “Officer’s clocks” and the name is based on an historical anecdote. 
It is said that Napoleon, having almost lost a major battle because one of his officers was late, ordered his military chiefs to carry a carriage clock with them at all times. Orders placed with master clockmakers always included the reference “a clock for an officer” and this brought the name into common parlance.

This specific shape was introduced during the second half of the XIXth century. Oval cases were found in a considerable variety, often engraved, with enamel sides or porcelain panels.
