A unique piece of superlatives
In addition to our existing clock collection, we design and produce very special - and often very complicated - clocks for our customers. Just recently we completed the most complicated table clock which has ever left our manufactory. The movement is mounted on a dark wooden base protected by a solid, rhodium-plated glass shade with two doors. The going train and striking mechanism of this exclusive timepiece are driven each by barrel and fusee. A Swiss lever platform escapement with a screw balance is fitted inside the movement.
Munichtime 2017: An all-around successful event
From October 27th to October 29th, 2017, for the 10th time the Munichtime show attracted many watch and clock enthusiasts to the Hotel Bayerischer Hof in Munich. We again have been there to present our handmade timepieces. At a new, very attractive stand, we took the opportunity to take the interested visitors into the exquisite world of our clocks.
Regulator NR 110 - Typically Naeschke
Anyone looking for a classic regulator in the reduced style of the great French precision pendulum clocks will find exactly that in our model NR 110. This regulator embodies all the typical characteristics of a Naeschke longcase clock in a smaller size. Starting with the case, through to the 12-facetted weight-shell up to the pendulum, one can immediately recognize the unmistakable hallmark of our clockworks.
Table clock NT 10 - Month running with ‘maritime’ associations
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.
New Matthias Naeschke website is online
We are happy that our newly designed website is online now. Comprehensible, fast and responsive our new site is developed for the latest generation of the world-wide-web.
A complete overhaul of our existing homepage was necessary. The new page presents itself with a completely new look: Large format, brilliant pictures, a tidy structure as well as a clear concept. In addition to the product information on our exclusive timepieces, the visitor receives a lot of interesting information around our manufactory Matthias Naeschke.
Powerhouse with long self-reliance
The table clock NT 12 is proof that the mechanics of clockmaking are limitless. The movement is a real powerhouse. Two weighty barrels together provide nearly 20 kilograms of spring force that pull on a single steel wire of just one millimetre diameter. Thus the entire power is transmitted to the fusee and through it to the going train. A conventional fusee chain would not withstand this enormous burden and break unpredictably. So why does the NT 12 require so much more energy than similar spring-driven movements?
All eyes on the dial
Our new 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. 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.
