Autonautic – Barcelona
We’ve seen lots of clocks in boxes, but frankly they seem gaudy with their brass corners and fancy locks. This is a new, elegant rendition of this standard theme, with classical conservative lines, and a new way of presentation. The clock is on an inclined bed for easy viewing with the top opened, or even with it closed due to the clear panel mounted in the top.
While technically not a true chronometer in the strict sense — that being a clock with a constant rate of error — the quartz movement is of the finest German manufacture, the U.T.S. Co., and deserves the highest rating that a quartz movement can have. UTS is the number one producer of quartz movements in Europe, and produces movements for the famous Junghans quartz clocks.
The box itself is made from fine grade beechwood with a mahogany finish, and goldplating on all metallic fixtures. The clock is encased in a solid brass, gold plated housing with a 5 mm thick crystal glass bezel which is bevelled on its circumference. The clock has a 12 hour Roman numeral dial with sweep second hand. Guaranteed accuracy is less than 1 second per day error. Box size is 7.6 x 7.6 x 3.3 inches. Power is from one AA size battery which lasts for 2 years. SW 5 lbs.
