LIBRA Sloped – Limited Edition

Libra-Sloped-Gold-Limited

The Epicyclic Skeleton Clock

At its heart, LIBRA, is a 10-day spring-driven pendulum clock. One of the interesting and unusual features found in this timepiece refers to its train, which is actually an epicyclic (planetary gearing) one. The motion work is based on the Ferguson Mechanical Paradox which avoids the need for a 12 to 1 gear train between the hour hand and the minute hand.

Perhaps, the most evident change that occurred, in order to be different from the original design, is the substitution of the metal case with two glass plates which give an impression as if the clock mechanism is suspended mid-air.

COLLECTION

Such a solution allows for the possibility to make the core element visible to the audience, inviting them to look at the clock differently, from a new perspective, thus appreciating its pure mechanism and maybe discovering something new and intriguing for themselves. William Strutt’s clock traditionally mounted the recoil escapement which, after a series of calculations, we substituted with the Graham one. The piece thus delivers a more precise performance.

The Invar pendulum which in the original version is linked at the back, is moved to the left side of the clockwork to enhance its aesthetical appeal. It was done for those clock lovers who never want to miss its constant and gentle motion.

Matthias Naeschke 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.

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.

The Mecca Clock Tower

Mecca_ClockThe 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.

Matthias Naeschke Table Clock NT 9

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.
