This longcase clock, with its eight week movement and its half hour strike, using two large bells, is a classic and distinguished living-room clock.
This carefully fashioned clock is predestined to provide permanent pleasure to anyone with style and culture. Even if you are absent for longer periods of time, this grandfather clock will still be running and striking on your return.
Brilliantly beautiful mechanics
The sturdy movement has great potential for a variety of special individual requirements and has been designed to endure for many generations. Apart from hours, minutes and seconds, it can indicate the date, the full calendar, the perpetual calendar, equation of time and the phases of the moon, etc.
The model NL 200 is an extremely versatile clock. It can be fitted either with hand engraved chapter rings of sterling silver or a closed dial. A slightly domed enamel dial and baroque shaped hands define this clock as a timeless and restrained piece of horological art.
The captivating beauty of hand-crafted, perfectly finished mechanics speaks for itself. Hardened and polished steel pinions, 12 precision ball bearings, 9 ruby bearings and large ruby pallets on the anchor promise durability.
At the half hour and hour this clock chimes on two fine tuned bells filling the room with their pure sound and reminding us of the inexorable flow of time.
