We do like naming our watches with references of historical and memorable moments in horology. This one is no exception:
Thomas Prest was the first person to register a patent for the self winding watch. The year was 1820. Furthermore it so happens, that our first showroom and office was located on one of the most historical avenues in Copenhagen. The exact address was Frederiksberg Alle 8, 1820 Frederiksberg.
– Therefore, 1820 Automatic
