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.

Engravings in the form of a traditional diamond pattern with flowers engraved in the crossing points which, depending on the angle, refract the light. This creates a wonderful image, always different and creating an illusory depth of view. The round chapter rings for time and date are engine-turned in their centre each by hand with a radiating pattern. Engine-turned patterns surround the minutes. The dials are completed by extremely fine hand engravings of the numerals with Matthias Naeschke-lettering at the indexes. The final matt silvery sheen is applied through the very old method of granular pure silvering. Thus perfect legibility of the dial is fully ensured even from a distance.

A highly polished cherrywood case with faceted glasses on either side provides a clear view of the immaculately finished, gilded movement. Extremely fine gearing mounted in 14 rubies is running between trapezoidal main plates transmitting the driving force of the 14-day mainspring to a platform with a Swiss Made lever escapement. A screwed balance beating 14.400 per hour ensures the accuracy of this timepiece. In addition to the time is a most important function of daily necessities – the date, which is displayed in the same large-dial format. The winding and the setting of the clock is performed through small openings in the rear of the case and a drawer accommodates the winding key. The solid, damped construction of the wooden case muffles all escapement noise. With its compact dimensions of 16.5 x 11 x 24.5 cm (W x D x H), this clock NT 9 is perfectly suited to find its place on desks, sideboards or on fine furniture.
