A distillation of craftsmanship and history
The case, finely panelled in rosewood, features a gilded and chiselled bronze carrying handle, which enhances its elegance and portability.
Onion feet add a touch of refinement, while the silver-plated metal dial on a gold-plated ground is distinguished by an engraved hour band with Roman and Arabic numerals, next to the auxiliary alarm clock dial.
The openworked iron hands mark the time gracefully.
The heart of this piece is the rectangular mechanism, housing two barrels and a verge escapement, revealing the technical mastery of the time.
The chime, which emits a delicate sound on a bell, enriches this watch with a sonorous charm that has spanned the centuries.
The clock is in excellent condition, considering its antiquity. The signs of time are reflected in the wood and metal details, bearing witness to its history and its journey through the centuries.
Not only a functional object but also a testimony to the artistic and technical heritage of 18th century Rome, this piece is a magnificent addition for any collector of antique clocks and works of art.
