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.
The manufactory Matthias Naeschke is setting coloured accents
For more than three decades the brand name of Matthias Naeschke stands for exclusivity and the highest quality craftsmanship of clocks, manufactured in small quantities or as unique stand-alone pieces. Actually we are setting radiant rose gold accents with a newly created table clock in the shape of the classic 8-day. The NT 8 catches the eye of the viewer in addition to its exceptional colour - incidentally the first table clock from our manufactory in rose gold - but also due to numerous technical refinements and our artisan expertise.
Entrance hall clock of Waldorf Astoria Hotel Berlin is made in Haigerloch
31 floors, 152 deluxe and superior rooms, 80 suites, stylish restaurants and bars, a light-drenched ballroom with 7 m high ceilings and a lavish spa and wellness area – the newly opened five-star hotel Waldorf Astoria Berlin combines it all in perfection. Of course the entrance hall of this first-class address captivates its guests with an outstanding charm and contemporary design. And following the tradition of the famous Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York it is also equipped with an outstanding clock. This clock with a total height of 2.90 metres has a prominent position in the lobby and was created by the clock manufactory Matthias Naeschke, in cooperation with the supervising Paris design office. An absolute prerequisite for this horological project was to create something, that goes beyond normal requirements for a clock and that lasts for generations.
