The clock case has been made by processing solid Toulipier wood and Tanganika veneers over an high density plywood. More than 1,000 small pieces of wood involved in it and processed artisanally by hand in at least 3 sides each. Moreover we added an internal light in order to stand out the interior woodworking of that real clock masterpiece. 220v -12v. Pay attention to the 4 top side finals hand carved in solid Italian walnut wood. Finely made 4 sides by Antonio Altobel to be in the room central position. 4 doors on the 2 opposite sides, glasses are blown transparent on top and cathedral gray/blue on the 2 bottom doors, fixed by screws and wooden sticks. No cord. 2 clock sides are closed and make the clock case very solid and durable.
Very specially this clock has 4 different movements. Really that’s a “Unique Edition” because 2 of them are opposite side located and quarz driven battery operated 1,5v included. Then the other 2 opposite movements are original German mechanical movement from the company Kieninger, they do clock movements in the Black Forest since 1912 made of solid high thick brass. One plays the Westminster chime quarterly and the strokes hourly over the bell chime. Exactly as per the Big Ben clock as it is! Please note that this chime since 300 years is the basic sound per each grandfather clock worldwide. Accessories also include: Genuine brass lire pendulum and weights made by the Jaeckle also original German company since 1888. Clock movement features: self oiling, self centring, self regulating and you may rotate minute hand counterclockwise trouble free. Moreover clock may not chime night time from 10pm till 7.15am automatically. Clock winding weekly (even more about 10 days) by pulling down the free part of each chain and so making the weight moving up. It goes down 12cm per day making the clock running and chiming. The opposite side movement is also Kieninger made and each its part: screw plates and wheels have been shiny fished in order to cover all the brass poors and previously assembled with the 3 different chimes. The small side lever allow you to select between the Westminster chime quarterly and the strokes hourly and the San Michael chime and the Whittington chime too. Instead of the pendulum movement has the “Swiss escapement wheel” that swings continuously making the finest accurancy for that reason the 11 bushings have been made of stone: genuine ruby.

Moreover clock stops itself to chime night time from 10pm till 7.15am. Clock winding weekly by rotating the key in the 3 rods by opening the back door. Do not overwind the 3 back side spings.
the row case has been painted by artist Giampietro in Bovolone Verona, like to be a picture: acquerello. Natural earth colors gray as concrete and light blue for the roofs and some black and gold color details. Final transparent waterproof very mat so as you feel by touching each brush made over the wood for a sensitive unique décor finishing.
After a long preparatory study during the 70’s we did an heirloom that endures for generation as the original tower clock in London per each home hall where the clock stands out. At that time the clock had one sole dial and in the year 2000 we did the first prototype piece with 4 dials/faces for a room central position.
We grant 2 years totally worldwide. It has the operating and starting booklet in 16 different languages included. We also will include usb-pen drive showing start up videos in English language too. Clock wood has been properly selected so it's dry and safe itself. About the movement package it includes the dial hands and the bells once. So simply open the top, it comes off simply unscrewing 2 gray screws and if you send or bring back the old one we give you a new clock movement package for free during the first 2 years and later at sole its cost. You do not need to repair or to ask people to come to your house. Simply self made replacement and per post sending back the old one to us. Moreover the opposite side movement has 4 screws to take it off too by opening the back side door and the 2 quarz movements can be replaced by opening the top part of the clock easly too.
