The TM5 is an eternal kinetic art composition that transcends time by uniting contemporary design with the authentic traditions of Swiss timekeeping.
The rhythmic oscillation of the pendulum, exposed components of the skeletonized clock mechanism, and the sheer size of the piece measuring 1.2 x 1.2 meters converge to create a work of art with a powerful presence: its intricate design and constant motion deliver adroit, ever-changing artistry as the elegant wheels turn in time to the swings of the pendulum.
Complementing this hypnotic sway is the steady movement of the oversized wheel and anchor beam of Florian Schlumpf’s patent-pending Orbital DriveTM system.
Choose to have the TM5 display, minutes, hours, and day of the week with magnetically positioned pointers. Or, move beyond precision by completely removing any indication of time to invoke timeless admiration, thereby revealing the TM5 in its purest form.
While the modern architecture of the piece immediately draws in the observer in by creating a mechanical and restlessly changing image, soothing acoustics of endless ticks and tocks enhance the connection with time.
The isochronal sounds of the clock are the focus as the balance of the complex machine is otherwise virtually silent thanks to an almost noiseless motor periodically winding the springs that drive the machine and an escapement using spring-like anchor pallets, which produce smooth, virtually inaudible transitions.
The TM5 captures the true beauty of time, while simultaneously remaining a marvellous, kinetic work of art that enlivens any space from a boardroom to formal foyer.
Thanks to its central structure made of high-strength aluminium, this animated work of art can be displayed on a wall with or without the bold frame enclosing the clock mechanism.
The TM5 Master Collection is available in four striking designs comprising anodized aluminium in a variety eye-catching colour palettes including Galactic Gold, Titanium Space Grey, Onyx Black, and Matte Midnight Blue; this work of art can also be further customized to the desires of its future owner.
