1941 PRINCIPIA AUTOMATIC SALMON DIAL
Grönefeld is pleased to reveal their first automatically wound timepiece the “1941 Principia”.
The 'Philosophiæ Naturalis Principia Mathematica' often referred to as simply the Principia, is a body of work by Sir Isaac Newton, delivered in three books. Written in Latin, the Principia formulated the laws of motion and universal gravitation. This Newton's scientific study is the foundation of classical mechanics and it led the Horological Brothers to select the 'Principia' name for their first watch with an automatic winding mechanism.
In the sphere of watchmaking, gravity can be a friend or foe. The slightest motion of the wearer's wrist causes an oscillating weight to rotate under gravity. It is this rotation that imparts energy to the mainspring, obviating the need for the wearer to wind the watch. In this instance, the benefit of gravity is harvested, making the 1941 Principia Automatic ideal for daily wear.
