When opening the front door, the inside of the clock even.This clock has become a MUSEUM PIECE! The amount of details is so incredibly special. Please take a look at the distance keepers which are marked. The G B mark (Gustav Becker).... This clock is SO Special... I guarantee you that you will NEVER find a wall clock in. No way any clockmaker will invest this labor into a time-piece! Very special is the year this clock was made in; 1921. The movement carries the date of manufactory, 2371921.
Which stands for August 25 of the year 1921. 1921 was the first year of the BAUHAUS PERIOD, in which. CURVED SHAPES were leading, as well as SIMPLICITY and.
Bauhaus is very, VERY collectable! Because 1921 was the first year of this period and style, makers. Were a bit "afraid"to leave all details away in their designs. This can be seen by the use of BRONZE ornaments on top and. On the door, and the "Carved" decorations on the roof.
It cant be any more pure, relating this clock to the year it was. Made in, proving my statement that all parts are 100%. That is, besides the restauration, of course. The CURVED SIDE WINDOWS are HAND BLOWN and give this.Size wised, this clock is BIG. The movement has a SEMI FUSEE nature, meaning that the. Springs are wound by extra gears; making it rather easy to. Wind the clock, spreading the force on the HUGE SPRINGS.
Note that the year 1921 is stamped on the movement for. 3 times, on the rear once, and in front twice! Besides the BEAUTIFUL WESTMINSTER Chime, the movement. Of this clock has been given a COMPLETELY OVERHAUL! EVERY single part of the 8 days movement has been cleaned.ULTRASONIALLY, most bushings are REFURBISHED and. Finally, all moving parts of the movement have been oiled. With the BEST synthetic clock oil there is. This clock will perform the way it should, for decades to come! The HUGE, BRASS, CURVED DIAL is to die for.. I decided to use a TRANSPARANT COATING for the shining. Brass parts including the dial and pendulum, so you'll NEVER. Have to polish them again! This beauty has a Movement performing like NEW -> a PRICE.
WINNING one that is, carrying the French MEDAILLE D'OR. Mark, which stand for a GOLDEN MEDAL, being praised for. Gustav Becker used the HARDEST metal for their movement.
Making them SO much more reliable. Ready to tick for decades without giving ANY problems. Special is that this beauty has a very well overthought design. With the materials and coulours creating a stunning cosmetic. Please take a look at the way the 3 BEVELLED Crystal windows.
Are made, in the lower part of the front door, which are. After SANDING all the wood, I applied 4 layers of the BEST.QUALITY wood wax there is, even on the back and INSIDE of. Note the weight this HUGE clock has; almost 11 kg´s! I even made a brass chain with a Gold couloured spring to.
It was missing, but I made them in a 100% AUTHENTIC. The symmetry of this time piece is overwhelming...The word "symmetry", to a whole different level! The dial shows you the time in ENGRAVED, Black. The hands have been RECOATED in their ORIGINAL black. Coulour, matching the numbers perfectly. The dial also has 60 ENGRAVED partitions, one for each.
Minute, making this a very precise instrument. Precise indeed, because this time-piece runs PERFECTLY ON. The pendulum comes in the same ROUND shape and material. Even the HINGES are polished, in shining BRASS. All screws have been polished (and / or recoated) as well.
Even those at the back, holding the GONG unit with bars in. In front of the dial, there is a CURVED CRYSTAL, which is an. The Westminster chime is played on 4 VERY LONG, LARGE. Bars; the striking on full hours is on 4 bars as well, creating a. Sound I have seldom heard...
