For your consideration we present a
terrestrial globe clock manufactured by Uhrenfabrik Carl Werner, Villingen as indicated by the logo on the movement. The company was founded in 1870 and even maintained an assembly factory in France. Werner was the largest movement maker in Germany until 1912, when the facilities burned down.

The company was taken over by Kienzle in 1913, but we believe this clock is from earlier production, circa 1910.

[As a side note, Werner was apparently also "infamous" for selling unmarked movements for private labeling, with some of these often mistaken for unmarked Lenzkirches.]

The terrestrial globe sits within an equatorial horizon band numbered with the hours of day, and with calibrated half-meridian, full solstice, and equinox bands, and with French labels on globe.

Clocks are well suited to be combined with globes because world time is based on the full rotation of the earth once every 24 hours. To use the clock globe set the local time on the dial. Turn the globe so the place of use corresponds to the correct time on the equatorial hour circle. Local time for any place in the world then can calculated.

Similar clocks are sometimes advertised as being made by Junghans (possible sales through Junghans?) but we think that is incorrect based on the movement markings with the Werner trademark.

The 10” terrestrial globe, likely by Ludw. Jul. Heymann, Berlin, is in excellent condition. It rotates once in 24 hours via a drive shaft from the movement.

Physical: The walnut arts and crafts-style cabinet with simple carving and beveled glasses is surmounted by a 10" diameter globe and measures 9"w x 24"h x 5.5"d overall. The markings on the 5" Arabic-numeral dial say "Patented" in German, English and French, indicating this clock was likely made for the export market.

As you can see, the case is in excellent condition with original finish, original silvering on the dial, and original beveled glass.

Mechanical: Most clocks of this genre run only 30 hours, but this is an 8-day clock. It runs well and keeps remarkably good time, having recently been professionally inspected and lubricated. The movement, pendulum,hands and globe are original to the clock.

Comments: We have provided you with significant information about this clock and a wonderful set of photos. Now, as time ticks forward, we await your call to make your own Werner acquisition!

This is perhaps the most ornate Vienna regulator we've ever listed on this site. Featuring a veneered cabinet of rosewood with insets of silver, brass, and colored wood, the case itself is a fabulous piece of art from Uhrmacher (clockmaker) M. Herz of Vienna, Austria. We were unable to find a history of this firm, but they were apparently in business in the mid-1800s through at least the first decade of the 1900s and made clocks ranging from this elaborate regulator to automobile clocks of the early 20th century.

Physical: The case, which measures 15"w x 54"h x 7.5"d, is in excellent physical condition. It was refinished at some point in the past, prior to acquisition by our consignor. The glass has also been replaced at some point in the past (typical).

The 7.25" porcelain dial is original to the clock and also in excellent physical condition as are the hands. There is a small hairline between XIII-IX.
The pulleys, weights and pendulum are original to the clock.

Mechanical: The eight-day time and grand sonnerie-strike movement was professionally overhauled in 2015 and is in excellent running order.
