Category: Table Clocks

Many of the early wheel clocks hung on walls or stood on wooden boxes in which the weights were running. In the fifteenth century, the first spring-mounted table clocks, which, as the name suggests, were found on tables or other pieces of furniture. Characteristic for the 16th and 17th century, the turret watch was decorated with an elaborately decorated case, often made of gilded bronze, mostly on metal sockets or black lacquered wood. This period of early baroque also includes figurines, in which elaborately worked statuettes, such as, for example, fig. Animals, carriages and ships playful with walking and percussion. Until the eighteenth century, Augsburg remained a leader in the production of automatic and automaton clocks.

The Mecca Clock Tower

Built from 2004 to 2012 with a height of 601 meters. The building has 120 floors, which are connected with 94 elevators. The area has a total of 1.575 million square meters.

The Hotel Tower is topped by the largest clock in the world. Dials are mounted on all four sides and each has a diameter of 43 meters. They are illuminated by two million LED lights. The execution is based to be able to read the clock up to 8 kilometers away. The dial is made of an glass mosaic with more than 90 million pieces, whereupon the arms of Saudi Arabia can be seen. The minute hand has a lenght of 23 meters and a width of 3.5 meters, and can be walked on. The weight is 7.5 tons. The hour hand is 18 meters long. The clock is equipped with solar power.

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.

NT12 – over one year desk clock

NT12 Holz

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.

By the creation of this new desk clock model NT 12 Matthias Naeschke has once again redefined the boundaries of technical possibilities. It stands symbolic for the 30 years of finest clockmaking from Haigerloch.

Technology:

Duration 13 ½ months,power reserve indication, barrel and fuse, escapement with round ruby pallets, compensated pendulum, chapter ring of sterling silver with handengravings, also available in other colours and materials
Height x Width x Depth: 65 x 41 x 33 cm

Table Clock NT10

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.

Naeschke NT8

The clock manufactory Matthias Naeschke sets coloured accents

For more than three decades the brand name of Matthias Naeschke stands for exclusivity and the highest quality craftsmanship of clocks, manufactured in small quantities or as unique stand-alone pieces.
At this year’s Baselworld the German clock manufacturer is setting radiant rose gold accents with a newly created table clock in the shape of the classic 8-day. The NT 8 catches the eye of the viewer in addition to its exceptional colour – incidentally the first table clock from the German clockmakers in rose gold – but also due to numerous technical refinements and our artisan expertise. Here, especially note the small distance of the wheels between the main plates of just 21mm. Thus, the NT 8 is one of the slimmest skeleton clocks ever made. This became possible by an ingenious three-piece barrel structure in which a very small mainspring is inserted directly into a section of the large main wheel. Looking at the movement from the side, it would be easy to believe there is no barrel needed in this movement.

Table Clock NT 7

An 8-day movement in restrained design and technical perfection creates absolute transparency in this clock.

A special attention to detail, innovative ideas and their implementation in technical perfection characterises all clocks from the house of Matthias Naeschke.  And naturally the new clock NT 7 is no exception.  By creating transparency nothing remains concealed. With the exception only of the red of the ruby jewels and the pallets, the colours of black and silver dominate perceptions of this clock.
