We’re pleased to announce that Hermle Clock Company has released a new catalogue, and it’s full of brand new designs. Today, we’ll be showing you one of their newly introduced table clocks; one that is created for the person who appreciates fine workmanship and mechanical design.

It’s conservatively sized, standing only seven inches high and five and-a-half inches wide at its base. The base is solid walnut with a smooth natural finish. The clock is encased in a superbly made 5 part beveled glass box. The glass case is a small part of what makes this clock beautiful, but its quality of construction is worth spending a moment on. Each of the four corners perfectly matches. It is very neatly assembled with a U.V. glue – there’s no kind of smearing or globbing, just a precise amount for the task. The mechanism is really where this clock shines, though.

Two heavy brass plates encase the movement front and back. As much excess as possible is cut away, leaving the gear train visible. Both plates have a clean brushed finish. Top and center of the front plate is the escapement. It’s a Swiss 11 jewel deadbeat escapement – not only efficient but also excellent for timekeeping. The rest of the mechanism features four ruby jewels for increased durability and reduced friction. All of this is visible because the dial is simply two stainless steel rings that strategically cut away to present the best view possible. The winding arbor extends beyond the dial, easing the job of winding once per week.

Hermle consistently makes excellent clocks, and the ones released in this year’s catalogue are no exception. This mantle clock, however, is likely one of the most attractive additions. Come by the shop and we would be happy to show it to you.
