Unique pieces that perform for generations
The philosophical maxim of Naeschke clockworks is to build the world‘s highest quality clocks through dedication to the finest design and timeless elegance together with the highest mechanical precision. That means realising new ideas with unprecedented designs handcrafted to perfection with a precision that no one else achieves. Only then can we speak of the vibrant and true art of clock-making. Only then one finds the assurance to acquire something extraordinary.
A modern interpretation of a classical timepiece
Table clock model NT 11 in Rhodium (RH) or Gold (GG) is powered by two separate drive weights. This is the first time Matthias Naeschke have adapted their proven principle of dual drive weights to a table clock. This made it possible to produce a 7-day mechanism with very compact dimensions. The definitive advantage of the weight drive is a constant and uniform drive torque over the full 7-days, thus providing a very stable accuracy over the entire running period.
In a weight driven clock the maximum available drop of the weight defines its limitations. Here two weights are guided over beautifully shaped arms on the right and left at the top of the movement giving aesthetic form to the clock. But the further objective of the two arms is to achieve a maximum drop of height. Of course the torque delivered by the weights plays a crucial role in this timepiece. The two weights ensure that energy is very finely regulated as we attach great importance to minimise tolerances and friction losses.
Impressive technology meets classic design
In addition to its technical refinements, aesthetics also play a signature role. The table clock NT 11 is a total work of art of impressive technology and classic design. A blend that we feel fits very well into the present time and the rhodium-plated version of the table clock NT 11 is indeed very modern. The NT 11 RH is a skeleton-form clock and nothing is concealed. The meticulous attention to detail can be inspected by the viewer who can verify that they have perfected even the smallest detail.
The highly polished base of the NT 11 RH is made of cherry wood and imbued with a specially developed finish. At first glance, the base appears completely black but depending on the light intensity, the natural cherry wood grain is still visible through the clear coat. A shining accent is provided by an encircling thin metal strip and the four adjustable feet provide an attractive offset contrast to the black finish. The beautifully blued steel hands are set over Roman numerals on a mat silvered chapter ring providing excellent readability of the dial.
The large chapter ring of the table clock NT 11 GG is plated with frosted silver and provided with classic Roman numerals and minutes. The dark blued steel hands in stylised lily-form are typical of many of their models and combine for the elegant presentation of the dial. The mechanism is protected by a fully glazed canopy precluding dust but giving clear sight for inquisitive eyes. The bright case base consists of olive burl, cherry wood and gilded metal inlays. Its elaborately polished lacquer competes with the gilded finish of the mechanism
Attractive home accessory and expression of genuine tradition
A table clock like this is a focal point, an attractive home accessory and an expression of genuine tradition. Aficionados of classical mechanics will appreciate the regular ritual of putting the beautifully made winding key on the precise square of the great wheel arbor and restoring the weights to run the clockwork for the next 7 days.
