The southwest of Germany is considered the land of tinkerers and inventors - especially in the field of precision engineering. On January 6th 2020, the German TV channel SWR presented in its program “Masters of Time” (Meister der Zeit) selected clock- and watchmakers from different regions of southern Germany and showed special timepieces. Our manufactory was also part of this documentation.
What a great success: On the occasion of the Blue Light Cup in Zhangzhou (China) we won two awards at once. Our table clock NT 10 received the "Star Award". Our longcase clock NL 126 GG has been distinguished the "Best of Best Award". This makes us very proud and we feel honoured by this amazing recognition. This established competition is all about watch and clock design
From 04th to 08th September, 2019 we presented our exclusive timepieces in the Gaysorn Village in Bangkok at the largest exhibition of independent watch manufacturers, which took place for the first time. It was a great event - very elaborately organized by Art of Time, Bangkok.
Personal requirements generally are incentive and basis to create something incomparable. The superior craftsman’s perfection imparted to our movements is far above the reach of the best quality that any serial clock production methods can produce.
Baselworld has closed its doors and we are back at our work benches. As member of the AHCI – the academy of independent working watch- and clockmakers - we presented ourselves this year at a new spot with more floor space and a record number of members exhibiting.
Recently we are also active on Instagram. You can find us under the following link: instagram.com/matthias_naeschke Here you will get latest news, background information, great pictures and a lot more.
In late autumn 2018 we exhibited at Salon QP in London – this time together with our friends of the AHCI. Once again it was a showcase of fine clock- and watchmaking with many visitors and great interest in our luxurious timepieces. At this international event we got a lot of praise for our handcrafted manufactory-pieces.
Copying can be seen as a compliment to one's own work. We, on the other hand, are rather less flattered by what is being shown at the Shenzhen Watch Fair these days. An entire exhibition stand full of Chinese plagiarisms of European clocks. In addition to plagiarized clocks from some of our friendly clock manufacturers, there are also cheap style copies of our clocks.
Table clock NT 11 - 7-day runner with weight drive
The gilded movement of or new table clock NT 11 with four large wheels in the gear train, designed in the classic golden ratio, is skeletonized in the typical Naeschke style. It rests on four Tuscan columns, each composed of six separate parts. Behind the clockwork, the compensation pendulum oscillates in half-second intervals. It 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 and a very stable accuracy over the entire running period.
