A gilded piece for precious moments
The 14 day running NT 6 “La gracieuse” is the gilded version of the table clock NT 6 “La brillante”. As with its sister model, the NT 6 “La gracieuse” is classically shaped with its bespoke mechanical movement and fashioned with our dedicated art of micro engineering and which is fixed on two finely glazed and black anodized aluminum columns.
Complexity also in case making
Protection for the movement is accomplished with a complex metal frame and faceted glass canopy. This remarkable case with opening front door consists of 33 different parts secured with 45 screws. Knurled adjustment screws at the four corners of the base set polished gold accents. They are in beautiful contrast to the matte black of the base. Presented in this way, the table clock 6 “La gracieuse” is a stylistic highlight of finest clockmaking and it draws the clock enthusiast into its spell through its transparency and technical finesse.
Retrograde seconds indication as additional complication
An additional complication is available for the Naeschke collection of table clocks. With the models NT 6 “La gracieuse” and NT 6 ”La brillante” a retrograde seconds indication can be ordered. Every minute, a gilded hand describes an angle of 90° before making a return jump to begin the next 60 seconds. The hand sits on a small column between the two main columns on which the movement is mounted. The black segment with its glossy white printing blends perfectly with the main dial of the clock.
