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.

A fairy tale (No. 29)

Miki Eleta - Fairy Tale

The clock „A fairy tale“ has been ordered by a customer for his 18 years old daughter. Her favourite animal is the frog. The cylindric and skeletonised minute and hour dial plates rotate around their axes while the indicator remains static. The moonphase indication has to be corrected every 128 years.

On its right side the clock features a musical movement with dancing figures. For many years a different melody is played without repeating itself. The days of the week are symbolised by 7 different frogs. Every day one of them appears until they are all united on Sunday. According to the day they symbolise, each of them represents another activity.

The clock features an Eleta chronometer escapement and consists of 555 pieces made from steel and gold-plated brass. The dancers and frogs are made by the glassblower Guido Stadelmann from Zurich.

TRES CARACOLES

tres-caracoles01

A playful piece of art.

Miki Eleta displays a new kinetic object in a class of its own.

The artist and self-taught watchmaker Miki Eleta, who lives in Zürich, expresses his very own, unusual view of time through kinetic objects that he personally constructs from start to finish in his workshop. A member of the AHCI, Eleta now presents his latest opus, called Tres Caracoles, at BASELWORLD 2014. The complex clock features some of the most sought-after complications from the world of watches, an extremely precise moon phase, a day of the week and a world time indication as well as a retrograde minute. Additionally, Miki Eleta integrated a music work, which plays a unique little tune for about 20 seconds, composed by kinetic principles. Centuries pass before the same sequence is repeated. During the musical phase seven miniature dancers and four musicians give a performance. The clock relies on an Eleta’s own escapement, which has chronometric precision. 2.0, C15

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.

Table Clock NT 6 „Retrograde seconds” – New Table Clock Model

Another new complication is now available for the existing collection of table clocks. With the models NT 6 “La gracieuse” and NT 6”La brillante” a retrograde seconds indication can be ordered. Within one minute, a gilded hand describes an angle of 90° before jumping back and beginning the next 60 seconds. The hand sits on a small column between the two main columns where the movement is mounted. The black segment with its glossy white printing fits perfect to the main dial of the clock.
