Clockwork – Specials
Watch mechanisms from established manufacturers in new designs. Men’s watches with individual casing and faces made from platinum, red gold, titanium and diamond. Unique items for individualists and watch collectors
The mechanisms of old master watchmakers in a new look … unique watches with completely reworked mechanisms that have been dismantled, replaced and inserted into extraordinary and unique casing. Precious 950 platinum, 18-carat gold alloy, pure titanium and flawless diamonds give these masterpieces a new appearance.
Uli Glaser Design JTP uniques with their unmistakable logo stand for professional workmanship and the brand’s changeable design. All parts subject to wear and tear in the mechanisms of these unique watches are guaranteed for five years.
The decorative watches we produce are unique items from the 18th and 19th centuries (1880 – 1920). As a result, they are not waterproof and should not be subjected to splashes. The functional minute repeater in the outer case is visible and has an open channel through the release lever.
Most of the historic mechanisms are signed by the original manufacturer with numbers, while the casing has a separate serial number.
The antique mechanisms have a manufacturer’s certificate of origin to exclude forgeries and imitations of all kinds. As mechanical timepieces, the Tourbillon mechanisms (manufactured in Asia) have a maximum tolerance deviation per day of 10 seconds when not used and approx. 2-5 seconds when worn continuously. Depending on their age, the accuracy of antique mechanisms is between 5-30 seconds a day; if worn continuously approx. 10 seconds at most. All mechanisms can be individualised in a variety of casing/face designs
