Today the classic hand-blown glass dome is popular with collectors and museums to present particularly fine and valuable objects in a stylish way which is visible from all sides. It was particularly tempting to combine the old craftsmanship of the glassblowers with our art of clockmaking and to translate this into the finest values of today.
The skeleton clock NT 10 is already the second clock model in our range using a glass dome for protection. When designing the base of the case, we were inspired by ship floors and ship hulls. A highly polished and gilded 6mm brass plate with cut-outs and four levelling screws form the base. The upper base is made of finely grained Sapele wood and with its concave profile, it is reminiscent of the hull of a ship. Fine inlays of maple further emphasize the maritime evocation. In the color spectrum of the woods, the radiant yellow gold as well as the silver accents of the clockwork blend together harmoniously. It rests on four classic shaped columns above the wooden base, showing the time on a chapter ring of hand-engraved sterling silver. All wheels of the clockwork run either in precision ball bearings or in ruby bearings.

All eyes on the dial
The NT 9 table clock is a timepiece of understated elegance. The dial is the highlight of the table clock NT 9. It is entirely hand-made in elaborate and diverse work steps. Here we have implemented the maximum of artisanal possibility and created a little masterpiece which is singular in its detail. The matt-blasted and gilded base dial is surrounded by a polished and screwed frame, composed of four individual segments.

Baselworld 2014 would have been the perfect kick-off event to celebrate the 30 year ceremony of foundation of Matthias Naeschke. However, other – as it is often seen and practiced – Matthias Naeschke have done what we can do best: creating and constructing a new movement. The result is the elegant desk clock NT 12 with a duration if no less than 13,5 months. This outstanding running time of over one year has a special position within desk clocks with pendulum and mainspring. Driven by mainspring and screw. The gold plated movement sits on four massive columns made of silver plated brrass. The great escapement wheel – typical for Naeschke – and anchor with circular ruby pallets are a must for this special clock; as well as a temperature compensating pendulum, ball and ruby bearings and a dial with hand-engraved sterling silver. The desk clock NT 12 is competed with an 60 cm high, fabricated drom cherry qood case with high gloss surface and faceted glass.
