Uaigong pendulum clock by Progetti

Inspired by oriental style design, the Uaigong pendulum clock is a piece of great elegance designed by Davide Tonizzo for Progetti, a company that promotes the excellence of Italian craftsmanship. The designer wanted to establish a cultural link between two countries with a long history of craftsmanship: China and Italy. Wàigong is a word in Mandarin Chinese meaning "grandfather": it is no coincidence that this watch revisits the pendulum clock, or "grandfather", in a modern way. The influence of the Rising Sun is emphasised by the choice of colours for the body of the clock, available in black or red, while the square and essential shape recalls Italian design: hence the perfect union of the two styles. Made of wood, the watch is equipped with a battery-powered quartz movement.
