For your consideration we present a
terrestrial globe clock manufactured by Uhrenfabrik Carl Werner, Villingen as indicated by the logo on the movement. The company was founded in 1870 and even maintained an assembly factory in France. Werner was the largest movement maker in Germany until 1912, when the facilities burned down.

The company was taken over by Kienzle in 1913, but we believe this clock is from earlier production, circa 1910.

[As a side note, Werner was apparently also "infamous" for selling unmarked movements for private labeling, with some of these often mistaken for unmarked Lenzkirches.]

The terrestrial globe sits within an equatorial horizon band numbered with the hours of day, and with calibrated half-meridian, full solstice, and equinox bands, and with French labels on globe.

Clocks are well suited to be combined with globes because world time is based on the full rotation of the earth once every 24 hours. To use the clock globe set the local time on the dial. Turn the globe so the place of use corresponds to the correct time on the equatorial hour circle. Local time for any place in the world then can calculated.

Similar clocks are sometimes advertised as being made by Junghans (possible sales through Junghans?) but we think that is incorrect based on the movement markings with the Werner trademark.

The 10” terrestrial globe, likely by Ludw. Jul. Heymann, Berlin, is in excellent condition. It rotates once in 24 hours via a drive shaft from the movement.

Physical: The walnut arts and crafts-style cabinet with simple carving and beveled glasses is surmounted by a 10" diameter globe and measures 9"w x 24"h x 5.5"d overall. The markings on the 5" Arabic-numeral dial say "Patented" in German, English and French, indicating this clock was likely made for the export market.

As you can see, the case is in excellent condition with original finish, original silvering on the dial, and original beveled glass.

Mechanical: Most clocks of this genre run only 30 hours, but this is an 8-day clock. It runs well and keeps remarkably good time, having recently been professionally inspected and lubricated. The movement, pendulum,hands and globe are original to the clock.

Comments: We have provided you with significant information about this clock and a wonderful set of photos. Now, as time ticks forward, we await your call to make your own Werner acquisition!

Subminiature R.A. Regulator Ornate Cast Front, c.1880 ~ Antique Clocks Guy

 

This is an unusual subminiature "R.A."-style Vienna regulator, the style of which, with cast front piece, we have not had available to us in the 18 years we've been in business. There is lots of detail here to observe.

Physical: The ornate cast front piece measures 16.5"h x 7.5"w x 3"d. It has a 2-piece, 3" porcelain dial that is in excellent physical condition. The case overall is in very good, age-appropriate condition. Note the side windows in the box housing the clock mechanism.

Mechanical: The eight-day R.A. mechanism has been professionally serviced and is in excellent running condition.

Comments: If you are a fan of Vienna regulators and would like to have a truly tiny one that will fit just about anywhere, this would be a great choice.

FYI, the clock was sitting on its back when we took the photos, confusing the camera about where it should actually focus, resulting in at least one dial being blown away by the flash and studio lights!
