Drawing inspiration, and their name, from inventor Christiaan Huygens, Huygens Amsterdam crafts silent, superbly accurate clocks. Christiaan Huygens was known as the father of timekeeping because of his discovery of the pendulum as a timekeeping device. Today, Huygens creates quality clocks by using a quartz movement as the inner working of each timepiece. The Huygens team has shown a mastery of clock design extending far beyond the outer framework. Huygens honors its Dutch namesake by not just using his innovations, but also by capturing the Scandinavian aesthetics in minimalist wall clocks that are as silent in their workings as they are breathtaking in their calm and distinguished in their presence.
