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.
The beauty is in the detail
The table clock NT 9 is a timepiece of understated elegance. The dial is the highlight of this clock. It is entirely hand-made in elaborate and diverse work steps. Here Matthias Naeschke have implemented the maximum of artisan 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, flash as starlight. 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 old traditional method of granular pure silvering. Thus perfect legibility of the dial is fully ensured even from a distance.
Guaranteed high accuracy
A highly polished cherry wood case with faceted glass 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 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.
