The Lanterndl clock is perhaps the best-known of all the products to have ever emanated from the world-famous Viennese watchmaking industry. At the beginning of the 19th century, the understated elegance of this charming clock led to it becoming a symbol of decadence and the epitome of a lavish lifestyle. The tapered and beautifully proportioned case paid homage to the classical principle of Clarity. The exquisitely detailed carpentry provided the perfect complement to the fine high-precision movements. Today, Vienna Laterndl clocks from times gone by can most often be found among the valuable exhibits in museums and at clock auctions. The prices of these sought-after collectors' items are therefore continually on the rise. In 1991, the classic "Vienna Laterndl" experienced a glorious Renaissance thanks to the launch of the 1602 model by Stiluhren Sattler; and this year – 25 years later – it is rising from the ashes once again with a special edition design limited to 15 pieces. The clock's features more than stand up to comparison with its coveted predecessors: The hand-polished case crafted from Pyramid mahogany with intricate maple intarsia is made up of four parts. This structure has stood the test of time and using it is the only way that lightness, transparency and stability can be ensured in equal measure. Having glass panels on three of the sides gives those lucky enough to behold the timepiece an unobstructed view into the premium-quality mechanism inside. The manufacture-made precision clock with seconds pendulum has a power reserve of one month. The timeless elegance of the case is accentuated by the clearly marked dial, the slim blue steel hands and the impressive bezel, cast in solid bronze and then polished to a high gloss, which boasts exquisite edging. There are very few master craftsmen alive today who have complete command of the techniques used to create these, knowledge of which has been passed down through the generations. Yet it is only through skilfully combining all these factors that this classic seconds pendulum clock – in all senses of the word – is able to become an indispensable accessory to any stylish living space.
