Not without reason the dial is mentioned in professional circles as being the face of a clock. In our clockworks much attention is devoted to this fact. Whether printed in Roman or Arabic numerals or engraved by hand, every line and every line thickness is precisely determined beforehand. Numerous variants of a dial can be designed, compared, discussed and the forms of hands are chosen. Then when the draft release is made by our clockmakers, a dial becomes part of an exclusive Matthias Naeschke clock movement.
Pure sterling silver in a thickness up to 1.5 mm is used as the base material for an experienced master engraver to transform into an outstanding dial or chapter ring. Cut by cut, he brings out the numbers and headings in this robust and lustrous material. A final hard clear finish coats the silver dial with lasting protection against tarnishing.
Other versions of our dials are coated with granulated silver and get a special lithographic printing. In contrast to screen printing, this procedure allows the finest line widths of one tenth of a millimeter or less. For organ clocks (or on special request) we use the classic enamel dial. The enamel is especially attractive if it is applied to a slightly curved surface.
