Desing 32734 and 32735

 

The skeleton clocks differ from others because their movement isn´t covered with the clock housing. The beholder has a chance to watch the operation of the clock movement. The first skeleton clock was made approximately in the middle of the eighteenth century. Since this time the clockmakers try to show how well they can made a perfect and sometimes also very complicated clock mechanism. As well these skeleton clocks represent some other solution of the simple assignment: to swing the pendulum and at the same time count its swings and so measure the irrecoverably elapsing time. The keynote is the simplicity of the easy finding out of the time. The clocks have only one hand and it is enough to see how the time flies.

 

There is the oldest from the clock - also the pendulum – hanged by dint of super-cheap polyethylene fibre which is fifteen times stronger than the steel one in the same weight in this clock. The peg escapement is so constructed that each peg gives four impulses for the pendulum. For that reason it is possible to use a half number of pegs than usual. These skeleton clocks certainly warm the cockles of each beholder´s hearts. In the stainless steel version they match to the modern interior. In the black version they decorate the classical or style interior. Their escapement is strong and unmistakable. These clocks can be a right present for your closest people. The originality of such present will be appreciated not only by the donee.
