CRAFTSMANSHIP

THE MANUFACTURE

The Paul Forrest manufacture is located within the Val de Travers in Fleurier, Switzerland — a small village known for its haute horlogerie history. It is here that the exceptionally small mechanical movement, Caliber PF-001 that powers the motion of the hearts is crafted. This exclusive movement is built to precisely power the patented, poetic beating heart.

That heart is brought to life (via the hidden mechanical movement) by an integrated winding key that is, in itself, a complex work of art. Comprised of many individual components the key and its one-way ratcheting system for easy winding, is referred to by Paul Forrest as the “key to your heart”.

The jewelry pendant is crafted in Switzerland as well using only 750 (18-karat) Gold. Each pendant features a double curved, anti-reflective sapphire crystal aperture, which is the window to the mesmerizing beating heart. Naturally, because at the soul of the pendant there is a unique mechanical movement, each pendant is water resistant to 5 atm.

MATERIALS

18-karat (750 pure gold) Gold in White, Yellow, and Rose

PF-HW05
18KT 750 White Gold

PF-MY19

DETAILS

  • Every piece engraved with signature Paul Forrest key pattern
  • Winding integrated Key/Clasp constructed in 18K Gold.
  • Double curved Sapphire crystal with anti-reflective treatment
  • 5 Atm (50 meters) water resistant
  • Heart shaped jewel comprised of 36 pieces
    (not including decorative gemstones of diamonds, rubies or sapphires.)
  • Medallion shaped jewel comprised of 35 pieces
    (not including decorative gemstones of diamonds, rubies or sapphires).

Winding integrated Key/Clasp constructed in 18K Gold.
Clasp is deployed by a push button. The key has an
internal ratchet system for ease of winding which is
constructed in 316L for durability.

MOVEMENT

The movement has been specially built to transmit force to a specially designed cam which rotates at 0.8 times per minute. This cam is covered with a thin layer of Teflon (PTFE) to reduce friction. The cam moves vertically a ruby pin integral with two arms which are pivoted symmetrically with respect to a vertical plane. This gives the heartbeat symmetry. The two heart lobe supports are fixed on the two arms. Two rods are fixed between an arm and the opposite lobe support and guide lobes to

guarantee a constant spacing between the two lobes, and balance the system. A mass is attached to one of the two arms to balance the system in a vertical position.This complex device converts a circular movement into a translational movement of two elements symmetrically with minimum effort due to a balancing of the weight in each operating position.

MOVEMENT MATERIALS

Each component and its materials are selected to guarantee
top performance and aesthetic beauty.

  • 316L stainless steel, high-grade aircraft quality aluminum, Durnico, Brass, Maillechort, Steel,CuBe (Copper-Beryllium), Titanium.
  • 40 rubies (20 for movement – 20 for the complication)
  • Pin in contact with the cam drive has ruby to limit friction
  • Guidance and support arms are constructed from aluminum to limit the weight of the moving elements.
  • Specially coated Teflon Cam wheel.

CORPORATE RESPONSIBILITY

Paul Forrest Co. is dedicated to sourcing high-quality diamonds with the utmost integrity. We vigilantly monitor our suppliers with every shipment to ensure that all diamonds are ethically sourced and mined only from countries that participate in the Kimberly Process. This process requires participating countries to control the import and export of rough diamonds.

The services we provide reflect the very high quality standards that distinguish our creations. They contribute to the long-lasting durability of your jewelry.

Your Heart’s Passion jewelry is brought to life by a fine mechanical movement, which needs to be cared for the same way as any fine precision instrument. Over the course of years, depending on the usage, the oil in the movement needs to be renewed and the parts checked for wear and tear by Paul Forrest Co or its authorized retailer.

INTERNATIONAL WARRANTY

The international warranty is valid for a period of twenty-four (24) months from the purchase date.
