Astrolabium The Versaille Mechanical Wristwatch
Our Price: 2,495.00
Our Price: 385.00

The quartz regulated Astrolabium has a month and zodiac disc together with sun, moon and earth spheres. Through the visible highly intricate gear train system, the Astrolabium clock reproduces the annual orbit of the earth around the sun, with the earth rotating on its own axis once in 24 hours and the moon revolving around the earth in 29.5 day. In the course of a year, the earth passes all twelve-zodiac signs, months and individual days, which are indicated on the brass band above the daily timepiece. Certainly the centrepiece of any home.
Size: 11"x8" (285x210mm)

There's a wonderful period feel about this fine wristwatch. Proof that tradition still has its place in this modern world. Retro looking with its classic cream face, turn the Versailles over and you can admire the ticking of the automatic mechanical movement through its special glass back.
Size: 32x25mm

Looking like something straight out of an old science lab, this fascinating brass instrument combines the functions of a barometer and clock to record pressure changes in the weather in the form of a trace.

The Exhibiton Wristwatch The Newton Mantel Clock
Our Price: 360.00

Beneath the scratch resistant crystal glass is a classic dial with traditional Roman numerals. The cut out to the dial allows viewing of the balance, essentially the "heart" of the watch. Added with the surrounding stainless steel case with winding crown protection lugs, the Exhibition watch truly lives up to its name.

The Newton takes it style from the neo-classical period and features four finely turned pillars, which support the flat top. The top holds the brass drum, which encloses the 8-day key wound mechanical twin bell strike movement and suspended pendulum.
