The PeneloP name

PeneloP and the watch winder name

Penelope, in Greek mythology, was the wife of Odysseus. Since her husband had left to make war in Troja, many suitors importuned Penelope, requesting her to marry them so as to acces the throne. 

She finally had to accept but fixed one condition: before choosing her future husband, she wanted to terminate the linen cloth she was weaving. 

Each night, the faithful wive undid the work she had been doing during the day. Her stratagem lasted for three years before it was discovered. 

A day, the one person that everybody believed to be dead, except for Penelope who was still waiting for him, returned home...


Penelope symbolizes fidelity.   






FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

  •     During how much time should my watch be moving?
    PeneloP switches on for a daily two-hour rotation period which is sufficient for all types of automatic movements.


  •     Will this wear the watch movement?
    No, on the contrary. It is even preferable that the movement be activated permanently. This prevents the oil from thickening.


  •     My watch winds itself up with a one-way rotor. Will PeneloP be compatible with it?
    Yes, you just have to determine in which way the movement of your watch winds itself up. If it does not wind up, all you do is place it on the opposite rotation support.


  •     Will PeneloP not wind my watch up too much?
    No, the movements are designed for all current or sportive activities. The 40 minutes base setting per day are sufficient for perfect functioning, but by no means excessive.


  •     May I activate PeneloP in continuous movement the whole day?
    Yes. Many shops exhibit their automatic watches in their showcases with PeneloP.


  •     May I connect PeneloP to a 110 VAC 60 Hz mains supply?
    Yes, but you must specify the voltage of your mains supply when ordering PeneloP.


  •     How can I change the moment where PeneloP starts working?
    Just pull the plug and connect it again in the moment you decide. PeneloP will then switch itself on automatically every day at the same hour.
