Desk, mantel and table clocks have been a staple of upmarket, tasteful interior design for centuries. Their appearance was always influenced for one by the style of their era and for another by their intended use, with either decorative or functional aspects dominating. During the Renaissance, table clocks were equipped with numerous calendar and other astronomical displays in addition to the hands showing the hours and minutes. Sophisticated art connoisseurs used them to demonstrate and impress with their interest in the progression of science. Erwin Sattler builds on this long tradition today. The focus is on exquisite craftsmanship and technical innovation coupled with contemporary design – and the manufacture’s usual high standards of quality always apply. What is more, these clocks are simply irresistibly beautiful.
