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 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.

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.
