At the beginning of the creation of each new clock stands a concrete idea or an individual customer’s wish. But from this lightest expression of interest it is a very long path through the rigours of technical implementation to create a perfectly crafted clock.
There are calculations, designs, recalculations, modifications and construction of prototypes upon which tests are performed. Suitable materials must be selected, the appearance of the dial and hands is established and the case takes its form on the draughtsman’s drawing board. Then follows the time of precise marking, sawing, turning, filing, milling, polishing and hardening. More and more beautifully shaped and decorated parts fill the workspace of the responsible clockmaker and one can already foresee the shape of the finished clockwork. Individual modules are mounted before finishing and the function is meticulously tested. Perfectly milled wheels are put into engagement and transferred into the main plates. Finally there is the grinding and polishing of all parts of the clockwork before they are gilded or rhodium plated. The final assembly is like a celebration, during which the clockmaker connects mutually associated parts and piece by piece accomplishes the assembled movement.
