Anyone looking for a classic regulator in the reduced style of the great French precision pendulum clocks will find exactly that in the Matthias Naeschke model NR 110. This regulator embodies all the typical characteristics of a Naeschke long-case clock in a smaller size.
Starting with the case, through to the 12-facetted weight-shell up to the pendulum, one can immediately recognize the unmistakable hallmark of Naeschke clockworks. This finely crafted and rhodium-plated movement is characteristically represented by an oversized escape wheel with a long arm anchor and its round ruby pallets makes this piece an unmistakable timepiece from Naeschke.
The movement developed especially for this regulator has a power reserve of more than two weeks and is constructed with 4mm brass main plates. The power transmission runs in precision ball bearings, the escapement and other wheels in ruby bearings. The chapter ring, made of 1.5mm sterling silver is individually engraved and finished by hand for each regulator. In addition to the time display with the Regulator NR 110, the date can also be read in a window above the “6”.
The special feature of the date is its switching mechanism which has been specially designed to save space – it is barely visible in the movement. The result is a strictly reduced and harmonious clockwork with focus on the oversized escapement. A further highlight is the extremely complex compensating pendulum with its mirror-polished pendulum bob.
The filigreed, 110 cm cherry wood case is fitted with three bevelled, polished, silver-lined glass panels. A feature of the case is the exclusive dark lacquer specially developed for Naeschke clocks. On closer examination, the wood graining is still visible through the fine silk-matte finish. This unique effect gives the case life and sensitivity. For more than two decades, this has been a characteristic feature of Matthias Naeschke clocks.
