A modern interpretation of a classical timepiece
Our table clock model NT 11 RH is powered by two separate drive weights. This is the first time we have adapted our 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 minimize 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. Our meticulous attention to detail can be inspected by the viewer who can verify that we 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.
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.
