The clock case
Presentation embodying the highest standards of quality and design
A clock case of Matthias Naeschke is not restricted to the trivial function of protection of a clock movement. It is part of the overall concept of a fine sense of style and expression for a clock. At the conception of a new clock there is always a time consuming process of designing the movement and the shape of the case. Materials are chosen and researches undertaken to engage particular workshops for specialities that cannot be made in-house. Be it fine woods such as cherry, walnut or ebony, perhaps a pedestal of granite, marble or other exclusive stones. But only the best is good enough to maintain our high standards.
The surfaces of the exquisite stone slabs are cut, faceted and polished by grinding with dedicated machines and finally finished by hand. Gilded or rhodium-plated fittings of brass are mounted before a movement is installed into its preordained place. Facetted glass panels in the cabinets, whether metal/stone combinations or fine wood reveal more subtle highlights and underline the high-end horological quality of our clocks.
