The World's First Independent Dead Seconds Series Wristwatch
Dutch watchmakers Tim and Bart Gronefeld present "One Hertz", the world's first and only production wristwatch with independent dead seconds (secondes morte in French). While rare, the dead seconds complication does exist; however to date they have been derived from other mechanisms, usually a constant force device or remontoir d'égalité.

The One Hertz features Grönefeld own proprietary movement and indicates hours and minutes on a sub-dial at 2 o'clock; large sub-dial for the dead seconds; power reserve indicator at 12 o'clock; and an innovative setting-winding indicator at 3 o'clock. Setting-winding is ergonomically selected by pushing the crown in rather than pulling it out.

Dead seconds - where the second hand advances in full steps of one second instead of an apparently smooth sweeping action - was a very respected mechanical complication until the 1980s; however, its popularity then died with the dominance of quartz movements, which also stepped in full seconds. A smooth sweeping second hand came to differentiate mechanical from quartz.

With their new One Hertz with its unique secondary gear train, Tim and Bart Grönefeld have resurrected this long neglected complication and re-positioned it where the complication originated, i.e. on the pedestal of high precision.

The quartz-like movement of the large second hand of the One Hertz subtly signals its unique mechanism, invisible to most, but obvious to haute horlogerie aficionados, who will appreciate the sublime flawless fine-finishing of the Grönefeld's own calibre G-02. These are limited to 20 pieces in rose gold and 12 pieces in stainless steel.

History of Dead Seconds
With the introduction of the pendulum in the 17th century, clocks finally became accurate enough to measure seconds. It was then not long before a hand indicating seconds on a long clock's dial signified a precision timepiece. A pendulum with a period - the time to swing forward and back - of two seconds (the most common) resulted in a single tick per second.
The invention of the balance spring, which replaced the pendulum, enabled miniaturization. As portable pocket watches became more accurate, watchmakers naturally thought to copy the one-second- steps of the second hand which signified a precision timepiece; however, the rapidly oscillating balance meant that it could not be directly driven as with the pendulum, so it required either a new mechanism if independent, or be driven from another complication e.g. constant force device. While pocket watches have featured independent dead seconds in the past, the Grönefeld One Hertz is the first wristwatch featuring independent dead seconds.

The Grönefeld "One Hertz" is unique among wristwatches in that its dead seconds are powered by a secondary gear train independent of the gear train for the hour and minute indications.

One Hertz
The hertz (symbol: Hz) is the SI unit of frequency defined as the number of cycles per second of a periodic phenomenon. This SI unit is named after Heinrich Hertz. One Hertz simply means "one cycle per second".

The second (SI symbol: s), sometimes abbreviated sec., is the name of a unit of time, and is the international base unit of time. To highlight the SI seconds, the One Hertz displays dead seconds with a large seconds hand in its own dial. Hours and minutes are non-SI units of time because they do not use the decimal system so are displayed separately.

Mechanical wristwatch movements often have balance frequencies of 2.5 to 5 hertz, which results in the seconds hand making tiny steps of 5 to 10 steps each second and looking like a smooth movement. The second hand of the One Hertz is either stationary (dead) or jumping in a full one-second increment each second.

The One Hertz Independent Dead Seconds Complication
Displaying dead seconds in a wristwatch without a constant force device is no easy task. The friction of the mechanism has to be absolutely minimal so it does not interfere with the escapement.

Tim and Bart Grönefeld used an independent dead seconds mechanism that is driven from its own secondary gear train with its own power supply. The seconds are driven from one mainspring barrel and the hours and minutes from another. Friction is with this system guaranteed to an absolute minimum and the complication has no adverse influence on the escapement and free sprung balance.

The two mainspring barrels are wound simultaneously from the crown, which features an innovative "push to set", "push to wind function", with the mode selected indicated on the dial at 3 o'clock. A power reserve indicator at the top of the dead seconds dial keeps track of the 72 hours of autonomy.

About Tim and Bart Grönefeld
The name Grönefeld and the art of watchmaking have a family history spanning nearly one hundred years, originating in the ancient town of Oldenzaal in the Netherlands. There, in a shop facing the ancient basilica church from 1240, Johan Grönefeld, Tim and Bart's grandfather, began his career as a watchmaker in 1912 (the "One Hertz 1912" is in homage to that date), marking the beginning of the highly talented dynasty of Grönefeld watchmakers that continues today.

Tim and Bart's workshop is located in Johan Grönefeld's original building as, representing a continuous, unbroken watchmaking family history that is exceptionally rare to find anywhere in the world today.

Tim and Bart underwent extensive training in Switzerland, and within a relatively short span of time proved themselves adept world specialists in the production of the most coveted and exquisite horological complications of all: the tourbillon and the minute repeater wristwatch. In 2008, after working anonymously behind the scenes for prestigious Swiss brands, they presented the first watch bearing their own name, the GTM-06 Tourbillon Minute Repeater.

In June 2010 Tim and Bart presented their second watch, the One Hertz, the world's first wristwatch with independent dead seconds and featuring a completely new movement.

Grönefeld “One Hertz” 机芯资料:
直径3 5毫米,厚度9.4毫米,零件数2 5 4个,3 9颗红宝石,带有黄金套筒,动力储存6 0小时,双发条盒(同速、同方向上弦),G y r o m a x 摆轮直径9.1 2毫米,摆频2 1 6 0 0次/小时(2 .5 赫兹),P h illip s末端曲线游丝,镀铑镍银夹板,带有鱼鳞纹打磨跳秒部分:独立机构,带有3 0 齿的凸轮C A M 装设在主行轮系中的秒轮上,擒纵轮装设在独立行轮系的秒轮上

在Tim 和Bart 两兄弟正式推出这个名为“一赫兹”的手表之前,还没有人知道Grönefeld 这个来自荷兰的新锐独立制表品牌。在了解这个品牌之前,我们先来看看这个有意思的手表名字:“One Hertz”。我们都知道,赫兹(Hertz)是表示频率的单位,用在手表机芯上通常表示摆轮在单位时间内往复摆动的次数。以如今常见的摆频为28800 次/ 小时的手表机芯来说,摆轮每秒钟摆动8 次,往复摆动4 次,即为4 赫兹。以同样的方式来计算, 摆频18000 次/ 小时为2.5 赫兹;摆频21600 次/ 小时为3 赫兹;摆频36000 次/ 小时为5 赫兹, 摆频43200 次/ 小时为6 赫兹。如果按照这一“规则”逆向推算,一款机芯的摆轮摆频为1 赫兹,那么表示这枚机芯的摆频大小仅为7200 次/ 小时,而摆轮每秒钟只摆动一个来回。真的具有如此“低摆频”的机械机芯,还是这里面另有隐情?

很多人都存在这样一种偏见,即看到“一秒一跳”形式的手表,便大呼其为“石英表”。这可以看成是受到上世纪六七十年代“石英危机”的深刻影响,也可以认为是对钟表历史认识的缺失。其实,“一秒一跳”的跳秒显示并不是“石英表”的原创,早在上世纪70 年代石英技术出现之前,机械制表的领域早就出现了被叫做“步进式秒针”的走时结构。据史料记载,最早产于1850 年左—— 揭秘机械式跳秒显示右的怀表中,便已经发现了跳秒式机芯的身影。随后,这种独特的秒针走动方式又在瑞士输入中国市场的“大八件”怀表中频频现身。
