Manufacturer of precision pendulum clocks based in Germany.
Even as a child, this native-born Frenchman had a liking for mechanics, in particular for his Meccano construction set. He underpinned his skills after completing secondary education with a baccalauréat by studying mathematics and physics in Strasbourg. By subsequently beginning his clockmaker training in Frankfurt, Philippe Wurtz focused on antique clocks and on musical movements.
Fascination met up with passion. Especially for precision pendulum clocks and their special challenges.
In 1989 he had completed his first design and in 2003 with the GRAMAT precision pendulum clock, Philippe Wurtz created a world novelty whose design elements had up to then never been combined in a single clock.
Apart from his annual exhibitions with the other members of the AHCI (Académie Horlogère Des Créateurs Indépendants) at Baselworld, Mr. Wurtz's work is part of the permanent collection of the Musée International d'Horlogerie (MIH) in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland.
