The History

From Marion Dönhoff, the grand old lady of German journalism, famously said: »We produce the
newspaper that we ourselves would like to read«. Heinrich Sattler would have liked this sentence. On
March 4th, 1903 this master clockmaker received the kaiserliche Patenturkunde Nr.163850 for his design
of a perpetual calendar. Heinrich Sattler designed exactly the clock that he would like to buy, but never
found. His Grandson, Erwin Sattler, inherited his love for complicated and extraordinarily elegant clocks.
The dream of this enthusiastic clockmaker was ,to build clocks of the highest quality by himself. Respect
for the traditions of classical clockmaking, perfect craftsmanship and innovation were his aim. So in 1958
he founded his own company: Erwin Sattler München.
In the middle of the 80`s his daughter Stephanie Sattler-Rick took over financial control and the
clockmaker Richard Müller joined the management as technical leader. Together, they progressively
transformed the company into a manufacturer.
In 2002 Erwin Sattler retired and handed over his life’s work to the next generation. Together Stephanie
Sattler-Rick and Richard Müller lead the company in the ideals of its founder: clocks for generations to
come. Erwin Sattler's dream came true.
Today, the precision clocks of the Erwin Sattler factory, produced in small batches, are reckoned as the
best in the world. Professionals as well as collectors regard them as the standard for technical innovation,
elegance and highest quality. For almost 50 years we have only made clocks, that we would buy for
ourselves, clocks, so high class they can be passed from generation to generation.

The Production

With regard to our customers, we have only one goal: total satisfaction. This includes the design,
quality and durability of our products. The long development process from the first sketch to the
finished product is a well-balanced relationship between modern technology and traditional
craftsmanship.
Only this guarantees that every detail of a Sattler clock fully achieves our high expectations. The 25
employees at the Erwin Sattler factory daily live the dream: clocks for generations. For the
production of our movement parts we use hightech CNC machines, without them tolerances up to
max. 1/100 mm would not be possible. But the most important factor when making high-quality
precision pendulum clocks remains the human factor in finishing and assembling these examples of
mechanical art. Guided by Richard Müller, the masterclockmakers and clockmakers working in
production, development and assembly, build the most accurate precision pendulum clocks in the
world.

All our movement parts are turned or milled from the solid metal. Following to the plans of the
development department, highly precise parts are produced from hardened brass and steel are
produced. Each of our 13 movements, produced in small batches, originates in our own
development department. Our high quality cases are manufactured in Germany to our demanding
specifications, by a company specialising in wood technology. We make manufacture about 90 %
of each clock and can therefore be called a manufacturer. Men and clocks have one thing in
common. They need a future. This is why we train young people to become clockmakers. Currently
we have 4 clockmaker apprentices. Jan Münch, a Sattler apprentice, won the German watch and
clockmaking competition in 2004, showing that this effort
has positive results.

The Movement-Quality

The Production of the up to 420 parts of our complex movements takes time. Engraving the scales for a
silvered dial alone takes 50 minutes. A clockmaker needs a full working day to make a matching set of
hands: the hour, minute and second hands. Each hand is filed in the traditional way to produce a half
round shape, the clockmaker calls it »profiling«. Afterwards the hands are sanded, polished, and heated
with a gas flame until they have an even shiny blue colour.
Our plates, between which all moving parts are mounted, are made from hardened brass. They are up to
5 mm thick and extremely solid. Each bearing hole is individually positioned and drilled in our CNC
controlled machine. This takes longer than simultaneous drilling in multi-spindle machines, but it is much
more precise. The elegantly shaped wheels centres are not punched out, but are milled. They are
mounted on solid, hardened, arbors with precisely milled teeth.
For lasting protection against oxidation all brass parts are gold-plated. The use of agate pallets, jewelled
bearings and modern ball bearings optimizes performance and avoids material wear. The clocks require
relatively small driving weights and run a long time without servicing.
The use of high-grade materials and our computerised machines, but most importantly the high standard
that each employee expresses in his work, result in the unique Sattler quality. Completion of a new Sattler
movement, before it can be fitted in its case, can take up to 2 years. A long time, but actually nothing,
compared with the centuries a Sattler clock will last: clocks for generations.

Research and Development

What Erwin Sattler and clock enthusiasts regard as precision depends on many factors. The more
precise a mechanical clock has to be, the more important the details. Precisely
cut teeth, the choice of the right material and reliable compensation for atmospheric influences
increase the accuracy by only fractions of a second, but this is exactly what makes the difference
between a clock and a precision pendulum clock. This is why the Erwin Sattler factory has its own
research and development department.
The only goal is to develop and optimise mechanical precision timekeepers. Here we use high-tech
instruments to check historic theories and developments for their day to day practicality. The
theoretical knowledge gained is put into prototypes.
With computer aided calculation of gears, the use of gears with a high number of teeth and fitting
the movements with jewels and ball-bearings we optimised the transmission of power. In this way
we save up to 50 % of the normal driving weight, at the same time the longevity of the movement is
extended significantly.
To ensure quality we operate a unique laboratory that enables our designers to simulate
environmental influences on a pendulum. In our pressure chamber, we check the effect of
pendulums of different weights when air pressure changes, to determine the exact degree of
compensation, which has previously been calculated mathematically. Therefore our clocks keep
accurate time up to 1 sec/month.
Using unusual materials we find new answers on old questions. Driving weights made of tungsten,
invar pendulum rods, extremely low friction ball bearings and air pressure compensation aneroids
are only some examples.
Richard Müller, co-owner and technical leader of the Manufacture Erwin Sattler invests
continuously in the research and development department to increase the technical progress. This
gives our creative designers the opportunities they need for their ideas and visions.

The Quality of the Cases

If you purchase a Sattler clock you should have one thing in mind. This timepiece will have other
owners, because it will survive for generations. All the parts, the hidden and visible get the same
care.
For the production of our unique, elegant cases, the same guidelines apply as for our movements.
We use only the best materials, combined with modern production methods and the traditional skills
of the carpenter.
Appearance, legibility, protection of the movement, stability and longevity, are musts for a Sattler
case. The natural wood used for our cases must be dried for many years so that it does not warp.
The slender fillets of the front doors in particular must be made thinner and thinner in several steps.
Between each step, they must be stored for months.
When all the parts have the correct dimensions, they are varnished. Between applying each of the
13 layers of varnish, the surface must be sanded by hand every time. This is why the varnishing of
a Sattler case takes 14 days. As a result the surface is very smooth with a silky shine which, like
everything on our clocks is extremely durable.
Large, bevelled and polished glazing guarantees the desired visibility. The dimensions of the facets
and all proportions of a case are perfectly composed and are often inspired by antique clocks. This
is the most important function of a Sattler case: timeless beauty.
Precious long stored wood, bevelled glass, high quality multi layered varnish and, most important,
attention to detail, achieve the quality that you can expect from precision clocks from Erwin Sattler.
Clocks for generations.

Precision Pendulum Clocks

What is a second? This question seems to be simple. But the answer has kept people busy for
centuries. In 1820 a group of French scientists defined the second as 1/86,400 of the mean solar
day. Looking at our precision clocks the answer is very easy. One second has passed when the
pendulum moved from one extreme to the other. Because we use only the best materials and work
with the greatest care, we can promise, that one pendulum oscillation is almost identical with the
second of the caesium nuclear clocks. And this will be true for months and years. In addition to
production quality our precision clocks need a solid vibration free wall.
Sigmund Riefler, the king of precision clocks in the 19th century, knew that microseismic effects
disturb pendulum time keeping. By intelligent design and construction, problems like vibration,
friction, and changes in barometric pressure and temperature, are avoided.
We admit that this has a high price, but one obtains the best accuracy of precision time keeping
that is currently available in the market. Clock enthusiasts can also admire.

Wood and metal – Metallica 1735 – The new product line

Model »Metallica 1735« provides an entry into the world of the precision pendulum clocks. The
combination of wood, glass and metal inlays gives the case an up-to-date appearance and because of its
»in between« size of 105 cm it is easy for it to look right in any living room.
The movement has 10 precision ball bearings and 2 jewels. The gilded gears drive the temperature
compensated 5/6 sec. invar pendulum. The open silvered regulator-dial gives a view of the Graham
escapement with sapphire pallets.
A barometric device dependably compensates for variations in the air-pressure.
The tungsten weight (with ball bearings) makes a running period of one month possible. Due to the high
quality of manufacturing, the use of high-grade materials and the compensation facilities our new model
Metallica 1735 achieves an accuracy of 3-4 sec./month.

5/6 sec. Precision pendulum clock – Metallica 1735
Precision pendulum clock doesn’t always need to have a second pendulum and to be 1,5m tall, to
measure time accurately. Erwin Sattler has long experience with 5/6 sec. pendulum clocks.
Because of the shorter pendulum of the Metallica 1735, the second hand makes 6 steps in 5
seconds.

The elegant modern case is finished with fine metal inlays, coated with 13 layers of varnish and
finally polished by hand. A window in the top allows light to illuminate the escapement of the open
movement. Antireflection glass let you admire the fascinating mechanism. Winding crank and fine
regulation weights are located in a hidden shelf in the bottom of
the case.

You can find 20 years experience of precision clock making in this movement. All the milled parts,
like the movement plates, 4-armed escapement bridge, counter balance for the minute hand and
the wheels, are manufactured in house, finished by hand and gold or nickel plated. The
escapement has agate pallets. All wheels run in jewels or ball bearings. The minimised friction and
a tungsten weight, suspended on a pulley with ball bearings, allow the clock to run for 30 days after
winding.
The silvered dial with hand-profiled and blued hands
has a solid nickel-plated dial ring. Because of the noble elegance and high quality, the Metallica
1735 will not only have a special place in your home, it will also show future generations the art of
classic clockmaking.

Classica Secunda 1985 – The Classic amongst Clocks manufactured by Erwin Sattler
The model »Classica Secunda« 1985 has evolved from our successful precision clock »1935«, of
which 500 have been made.
Always, when the traditional art of horology and timeless design come together, one of the exquisite
clocks by Erwin Sattler is created. The Classica Secunda 1985 is exclusive wall décor for offices
and meeting-rooms, reception halls and living rooms.

The production of the case also shows great love for detail. The application of the 13 layers of
varnish alone takes around 2 weeks. Three beveled glasses allow a fascinating view of the
technical features of the clock and an additional window on top allows light to illuminate the
movement from above. The winding crank, fine-regulation weights and additional accessories are
hidden in a secret compartment in the bottom of the case.

This clock is and extremely accurate time keeper whose maximum deviation is not more than 1-2
sec/month under optimal conditions. To prevent bigger deviations, which would be caused by
temperature and air pressure fluctuations, an air pressure compensator is attached to the
pendulum; additionally the Classica Secunda 1985’s pendulum rod is manufactured out of so-called
»super invar«.
The weight runs down on one side with a delicate jeweled pulley and a power reserve of 30 days.
All movement parts like plates, pillars, bridges, gears and chatons are milled and turned in small
numbers. All parts are finished by hand and gold plated. The precisely calculated shaping of the
gears, and ball bearings or jeweled bearings, reduce friction to
a minimum and guarantee a lifetime of generations.

Technical details visible – Classica Secunda 1995 – timeless noble modern design

At first glance Classica Secunda 1985 and 1995 are the same clocks. The cases with their several
wood variations and the pendulum are identical. With the development and production of the model
Classica Secunda 1995 Erwin Sattler continues the great tradition of precision pendulum clocks in
an impressive way.
The opening in the seconds dial and front plate enable a view on the gold plated wheels and the
Graham escapement with agate pallets. A very special detail is the three-armed escapewheel
bridge made of stainless steel and mounted with polished and blued screws. Also in this clock a
glass in the top allows light to enter the case and illuminate the movement from above. The
accessory parts are fitted in the bottom of the case. Another difference to model 1985 is the
sophisticated pulley with ball bearings.

To perform this demanding task, no compromise is permitted in the design and building of the
mechanism. The gears turn on shafts made of special Swedish steel. Using 5 ball bearings and 11
jewels, the shafts are mounted between plates of 4 mm strong hard brass. This reduces bearing
friction and wear to a minimum. The jeweled bearings are set in diamond-turned chatons which are
attached with 3 polished stainless steel screws. The plates are finely grained and finished with a
nickel plating. This provides a beautiful contrast with the gold plated wheels.
The Graham escapement with jewel pallets provides constant transmission of energy to the
pendulum. While you wind the clock a so called counter ratchet drives the pendulum.
The delicate »spade« hands are also made according to classic models. They are curved, polished
and blued with precise craftsmanship. It takes about two years to manufacture the components, the
movements are assembled in small series of max. 10 pieces. No doubt that these products can be
called the »art« of clockmaking.

Secunda Accurata 1958 –
improved »Free Strasser escapement« after Prof.Ludwig Strasser

The »Secunda Accurata 1958« is an expression of our desire to construct a purely mechanical
precision pendulum clock, illustrating the best reliability and accuracy technically achievable. In
order to achieve this aim, we have paid the greatest attention to every detail in the design as well
as during the subsequent manufacture. Thus, after their production by most modern machines, all
the components are carefully finished by hand, the brass parts are gilded, the steel parts are
polished and some are blued.
The model 1958 continues the tradition of the best mechanical timepieces and represents the
ultimate achievement of our precision clock making. The construction of this modern 30-day
movement, with a visible free escapement, can be compared with the best antique movements and
it betters them in the precision of its manufacture. An example of the 1958 has been exhibited
among the clocks in the Deutsches Museum, Munich, since 1996.
The Sattler movement Cal.1958. To ensure perfect function for decades, the gear train and
escapement parts run in jewels and ball bearings. All brass parts like plates, bridges, pillars and
wheels are milled, grained and gold-plated for protection. Hardened pinions with a high number of
teeth are used. All this results in reduced wear, and a very small driving force is needed for a
running period of 30 days.
The free escapement invented by Prof. Strasser is a technical device by which the pendulum is de-
coupled from the drive train so that it oscillates almost without interference. The unique technology
of this pendulum clock deserves an attractive and valuable case. We put a curved 5 mm thick
mineral glass in a solid metal and wood frame and attached it with hinges and hooks, made in-
house, to a solid, black, back-plate. A polished walnut insert is fitted in the centre, accessory parts
like winding crank and fine regulation weights occupy a compartment in the base.

The timeless, elegant – Classica Accurata 1968 – with »Free Strasser escapement«

Classic or modern? The timeless precision-clock with its simple elegance can be combined with
antique furniture pieces as well as modern interiors.
Technology and quality are matched in the Secunda Accurata 1958 (S. 24-27). The »white
components«, that is the bezel, pendulum, weight, barometric compensator and plates, give the
clock a cool minimalist appearance. But the most important thing is the design: The open, engraved
and silvered dial allows a view of the Free Strasser escapement with its characteristic four ruby
pallets as well as the hand polished and gilded wheels. It is a pleasure to watch the wheels and
listen to the characteristic ticking. Another highlight is the temperature compensated double cylinder
pendulum.
In addition to temperature, air pressure also affects the oscillation period of a pendulum. Under
rising air pressure, the pendulum oscillates more slowly, whereas it speeds up under falling air
pressure.
In order to compensate for this factor as well, the pendulum is equipped with an ingenious
instrument, consisting of five aneroid capsules carrying a weight. Rising air pressure presses the
capsules more closely together, lowering the weight to sink and compensating for the loss of the
speed. Falling air pressure causes the aneroid to operate in the opposite way. The scale of the
barometer does not correspond to the display of changes of air pressure measured in hecto pascal,
as is nowadays the case with barometers. It displays air pressure changes, as it was common
practice in former times, in millimeters of mercury.
The jewelled pulley lowers friction and reduces the weight required. As a result the 4 kg weight
enables the clock to run one month.
To protect the movement and pendulum from vibration when opening and closing the case, these
parts are separately mounted to the wall. The 3 kg cast-iron back plate is 10 mm thick and the
movement can be levelled using adjustment screws.
Because of the combination of different materials and working processes to enhance the accuracy,
deviations of less than 1 sec per month are possible.

Page 13   Precision Pendulum Clocks



Technical details from Secunda Accurata 1958 and Classica Accurata 1968

The airpressure compensation:
Because its period of oscillation increases when the air pressure rises, the pendulum is additionally
equipped with a barometric-error compensator. The compensation is achieved by aneroid capsules
and a weight, which moves upwards or downwards according to the respective changes of air
pressure, thus preventing a change of the oscillation period.

The temperature compensation:
The accuracy of a pendulum clock does not exclusively depend upon the mechanical properties of
the mechanism, but also on external physical influences. The oscillation period of the pendulum is
primarily determined by the pendulum length. Variations in temperature however result in a
corresponding change of the pendulum length due to the linear expansion of the materials used.
The pendulum rod of the Secunda Accurata 1958 consists of an iron nickel alloy, called super invar.
This is characterised by an especially small linear expansion when temperature changes. In order
to compensate for this residual expansion as well, the pendulum is equipped with a temperature
compensation device. A small residual temperature error may however occur. It is therefore
advisable to expose the clock only to small variations of temperature. If this is considered when the
location of the clock is chosen, deviations of less than 1 sec. / month can be attained.

The function of the free Strasser escapement:
The escapement in the clock, consisting of the pallet assembly and escapewheel, is the connecting
link between the gear train and the pendulum. The escapement must supply the pendulum with the
energy lost due to internal friction in the suspension spring and in moving through the air. Before
the free Strasser escapement was invented for pendulum clocks, it was the so-called Graham
escapement which served as the connecting link between the pendulum and the gear train. In the
case of this escapement the anchor and the pendulum form a rather rigid connection through the
pallet fork, the disadvantage being that even the slightest variations in the driving force are
transmitted from the gear train to the pendulum. These variations in force result in a change of the
amplitude of oscillation of the pendulum and thus influence the time of oscillation to a small extent.
By the invention of the »free Strasser escapement« it was now possible to improve the already
excellent accuracy of the precision clocks once more.
This is primarily achieved by de-coupling the clockwork from the pendulum to a large extent. The
pendulum is linked to the pallet arbor just by the two thin strips of spring steel of the suspension
spring. In order to supply the pendulum with the energy necessary for maintaining the oscillation,
the two pendulum driving springs are twisted by an angle precisely defined angle by the geometry
of the escapement. The pendulum is thus supplied with the same power every swing, every
second. The escapements in our Secunda Accurata 1958 and 1968 can therefore be described as
»constant force« escapements.

Fine Regulators

At Sattler we realise that not everyone has a place for a large clock with a one second pendulum.
We also know that there are people who prefer smaller clocks. We offer a variety of different
regulators. From a classic Vienna regulator to a modern time-keeper, they have all marks of a
precision instrument, but need a much smaller case because of the faster pendulum beat.
Timekeepers like this can be integrated into almost every interior. No matter whether the design is
inspired by the past or the present: every regulator will be an eye-catcher. Everything is
manufactured with German precision. These days, something like this is rare, because mass
production has changed many products. In addition craftsmanship aspect there is another important
difference: Your Erwin Sattler regulator still fascinates and has value when many other things don’t
exist anymore.
The production of the enamel dial alone is an art in itself since the material, which is difficult to work
with, needs to be kiln fired four times in the production process before a perfect piece is created.
Besides the selection of highest quality materials, today, the use of computer operated machines
serves as the basis for the fact that every Vienna 60 in an exclusive individual piece. However,
more important is the manual assembly as well as the manual adjustment of the clock. Additionally,
there are several critical testing procedures, which make every Sattler clock into an absolute
primary timekeeper in the tradition of classic horology. Each piece is, literally, examined under the
magnifying glass, and is the work of several horologists. It is no coincidence that clocks from the
Erwin Sattler manufactory are now days considered as the standard among the modern clocks built
according to historical examples.

Classica 60 – the smallest regulators from Erwin Sattler
The precious movement of the smallest Sattler regulators is the exact equivalent of the movements
of the beginning 19th century.
The quality features like hardened steel parts, hard brass for plates escapement bridge turned from
of solid material, pillars are pinned, the method used in antique movements. In addition, the
movements are equipped with 7 jewels and 2 ball bearings. Friction is further reduced and a very
small weight supplies power for one week and ensures that these clocks will last for generations.
Because of the »silent ticking«, the »so-called« bedroom regulators provide many people an entry
into the world of exclusive clocks. The reason is the extremely thin movement and the masterpiece
case.
The Classica 60 can be provided with roman or arabic dial. The wonderful enamel dial with the
delicate blued steel hands and the solid brass dial ring give the clock the unique appearance. The
production of the enamel dial alone is an art in itself since the material, which is difficult to work
with, needs to be kiln fired four times in the production process before a perfect piece is created.
The timeless classic shape of the case matches all interior styles. The Classica 60 is available in
black varnish or cherry wood, but also, at an additional charge, in individual colours.

Classica S 70 – best clockmaker tradition in timeless form
The Sattler Classica S 70 is a pendulum clock which
strikes on a spring gong. The case is timeless and elegant. Two versions are available: black
varnish with nickel-plated metal parts or maple with palisander inlay and black lacquered top and
bottom.
Finished with two blued steel hands, which display time on
a precious enamel dial, gives the 70 cm high Classica S 70 its characteristic timeless appearance.
The Classica S 70 integrates perfectly into the ambience
of a classic interior as well as with modern chrome or steel furniture.

But back to the movement of this clock. The Sattler Caliber 1400-4 is a classic striking mechanism
in every regard. Its
traditional design and finish guarantee reliable functioning for generations – as was already the
case 200 years ago for the original Vienna regulators. The front plate is kept on its pillars by pins;
as are all the levers of the striking mechanism on the striking mechanism pillars. This method of
construction provides consistent precision and highest reliability of the control and function of the
striking mechanism. The complete gear train is equipped with 14 jewels and 4 ball bearings. This
extends the lifetime of the movement significantly.
An additional technical feature at the heart of the Classica S 70 is the possibility of starting the
strike mechanism manually up to the 50th minute by pulling a silk string that is attached to the
exterior of the case and thus allowing the passed hour to be repeated. The result: the unique sound
of the Sattler striking movement.

Vienna S 70 – the so called Vienna Regulator
The regulator Vienna S 70 with its two weights is inspired by the originals from the time of
Biedermeier time.
Like at all our clocks, the carpenters use long aged wood. The use of delicate profiles, the
assembly, the veneer, the inlay-work, illustrate traditional skills visible. The Vienna S 70 is available
in walnut, maple, cherry with palisander inlay, but also with black varnish. By the way, Sattler clocks
have 13 layers of varnish, which are sanded by hand between every coating. This process alone
takes 14 days. The Vienna S 70 can be equipped with roman or arabic dial with the delicate blued
steel hands and solid brass dial ring give the clock the unique appearance.

Regulator with 30 days movement – Classica S 100 – with over 200 years tradition

One has to listen carefully to the Sattler Classica S 100, in order to hear the passing of minutes and
seconds. Besides the especially quiet ticking, the small pendulum oscillation and an extremely thin
case (just 12 cm) are the outstanding traits of this classic Sattler clock.
Already in the previous century, the quiet timekeepers, such as the Sattler Classica S 100 with its
30-day movement, were considered absolute rarities among the pendulum clocks. Today, Erwin
Sattler succeeds in resurrecting the classic movement construction and the outstanding quality
following to the tradition of classic Vienna movements. Typical for these precious regulators, then
and are now, were a very unique flat movement with a thick bottom plate as well as the noticeably
small weights, which are capable, due to the extremely high effectiveness of the wheelwork, to
supply the movement with enough power for one month.

Very quiet regulator with 30 days movement – Classica K 100

Only a few clocks tick so remarkably quietly and subtlety, as the Classica K 100 by Sattler. Already,
more than 150 years ago, such extremely quiet clocks, with a 30-day movement, were established
as a true rarity more than 150 years ago.
Today, the clock manufacturer Erwin Sattler has succeeded continuing the great tradition of classic
Vienna movements and in resurrecting their outstanding quality. As well as the new technical
possibilities now available to all the 14 Sattler horologists, the above average craft skills, and
sensitivity for materials and processes and extensive horological experience are as important now
as in the past.
In the small but excellent workshop, all these qualities shape the Classica K 100 into a true Sattler
Classic: a clock with a one-month power reserve and with a calendar movement.
Blued steel hands display time, day and date on a silvered dial. The individual lunar phases can
also be seen on a hand-painted disk.
The effect, this planet has on our life, has captivated people at all times. And up until now, this has
not changed; the pale terrestrial satellite is, in many ways, responsible for our quality of life: the
change of the tides and the influence of the full moon on our sleep are just two of these natural
phenomena.
The »Lunar Clock« Classica K 100 by the Sattler Company
is available in noble yew wood with rosewood inlays and black-varnished cornices or selectively in
black varnish with nickel-plated metal parts.

Elegantia – wall clock in empire style
The Elegantia is a combination of late baroque style elements and a classic clean design, which lead at
the beginning of the 19th century to the Biedermeier style. From ca 1815 furniture in the Biedermeier style
decorated living rooms in Bavarian mansions. Viennese aristocrats and the high society loved this
interiors which had a simple elegance. A few years later, Biedermeier style reached the homes of public.
It changed the attitude of living: A Biedermeier room was not only for show anymore, it was also for living.

The Elegantia is a wall clock in the Empire style from the beginning 19th century. The back of the case
and the lateral fillets are made of precious pyramid mahogany. The movement has a winding interval of
one month, the inlay work is made of maple and the Viennese hands are blued. The special grain of the
mahogany root is similar to a pyramid. This is why it is called pyramid-mahogany. This rare and
expensive veneer is used at the Elegantia. The hand-polished door-frame is fitted with lateral case fillets
which are demanding work for carpenters.


Elegantia S 100 – with striking mechanism
The movement Sattler Cal.1525-4 is identical in design and function with the Classica S 100. It is a
30-day regulator with an hour repetition striking movement. Significant for these precious regulators
was and is the very flat movement with high quality plates and very small weights. Because of the
ow friction of the gear train a 30-day power reserve is possible. The use of hard brass, hardened
pivots and steel parts are another point to ensure the durability of the movement 1525-4 for
generations.
The Viennese hands are blued on a brass plate in the old traditional clockmaker’s way. The noble
appearance is completed by a solid brass bezel around the enamel dial.
An additional technical feature at the heart of the Elegantia S 100 is the possibility of starting the
strike mechanism manually up to the 50th minute by pulling a silk string that
is attached to the exterior of the case and thus allowing the passed hour to be repeated. The result:
the unique sound of the Sattler striking movement.


Elegantia K 100 – with calendar movement
The movement: In constrast to S 100, the K 100 is equipped with the Sattler Caliber 1565-4. This
movement has 30-day running period and displays time on a silvered dial. Additional date and day,
are indicated with hand made blued steel hands. The moon-phase is shown on a hand-painted
disk.
All the quality features mentioned can also be found in this movement as there are hardened pivots
and arbors, hard brass for plates and 7 jewels and 4 ball bearings.

Table Clocks

It does not cost a lot, to have a table clock in your home.
In the past they were also called bracket or console clocks. They had short pendulums or a balance
wheel (platform) escapement. Their appearance was influenced by the time they were made and
their use. Either decorative or functional aspects were emphasised. The dials were also influenced
by the purpose of the clock. Often astronomical and calendar indications were added. A power
reserve-display reminded the owner when to wind up the clock.
In accordance with this long tradition, Erwin Sattler offers very special clocks like Metrica or
Subsidia. One does not have to point out that these models are also produced by first class
manufacturing techniques. All our spring-driven movements with platform escapements are made
»in house«. The quality level is the same as it is for our pendulum clocks. The technicians and
clockmakers working with Richard Müller use their complete knowledge and experience to the full
achieve a high degree of accuracy.
Close attention is given to the dials hands and cases as well as the movements. Every detail has to
be considered, because the name Erwin Sattler on the dial is a guarantee of the highest quality.

Fine and elegant line – Metrica – a timeless beauty

In a prestigious office, or when surrounded by valuable paintings, a table or mantel clock like the
Metrica provides an appropriate accessory as a time keeper. The modern case with metal inlays is
the enduring combination of established movements and up-to-date materials. Using recently
developed gold-plated gear trains Sattler clockmakers have created a reliable and durable table
clock-movement.
In the very special case you find the calibre 1385 movement made by Erwin Sattler with unique
technical skill. It contains an integrated »maintaining power« ratchet which continues to supply
power to the movement during the winding process.
A fusee provides a constant driving force. Additional technical features of the Metrica are, e.g., the
Swiss platform escapement with balance spring and a total of 11 ruby jewels as well as 12 stainless
steel ball bearings in the gear train.
The movement has a 15-day power reserve and a display of the power reserve on the dial. The
time (including seconds) and date are indicated on the silvered dial. The mechanism is not hidden,
it can be seen through glazed panels in the sides of the case. Elegantly shaped, gold plated gears
can be seen mounted on hardened arbors with precisely machined pivots. A clock built in this way
meets all expectations of classic clockmaking. It is the »state of the art« object in your room.

Noble table clock – Subsidia – in the Art Deco-Style

Inspired by the geometrical form and the what are now considered classic styles of the 1920s and 1940s
of the last century, Erwin Sattler Clockmakers created the noble »Subsidia«, an Art-Deco table clock with
silver-plated dial and delicately bevelled crystals.
One of the most recognizable feartures of this gem of the traditional horological craftsmanship, which has
been meticulously adhered to over almost 50 years in the Sattler Company, is the newly developed
movement with 15-day power reserve and a display of the power reserve on the dial. This is the reason
for the Subsidia’s characteristic name, which is derived from the Latin: »Subsidium«, which is in English,
»reserve«.
The unique charm of the Subsidia is immediately apparent and is achieved by the balanced proportions of
the wooden case and the carefully laid out dial accentuated by hand-crafted, blued, hands. This is partly
due to the small second hand and the display of the date with a separate hand.
One aspect of the true value is hidden – as is always the case with the fine clocks from the Sattler
Company – on the inside. A Sattler manufactured movement , the Caliber 1385 is made with unique
technical finesse. Sattler designers included a »maintaining power« ratchet which continues to supply
power to the movement during winding. An extremely solid fusee provides a constant driving force.
Additional technical features of the Subsidia are, e.g., the Swiss platform escapement with balance spring
and a total of 11 ruby jewels as well as 12 stainless steel ball bearings in the gear train.

Page 24    Ship‘s Clock



Ship´s Clock

On the open sea, it is extremely important for the captain and the staff to know the exact position at
all times. Today, ships are guided to their destination by the satellite navigation system, 250 years
ago they were dangerous trips into the unknown. Every navigator could determine latitude by the
angle between sun and horizon the latitude, but the longitude was impossible to calculate. Time
and again, British ships crashed into deadly reefs and lost many lives and the precious cargo.
Scientists from Galileo Galilei to Isaac Newton tried over centuries to find an answer. A
breakthrough was provided by an English clockmaker in the middle of the 18th century. It was an
invention that is important still in our times. The key to determine the longitude is accurate time. The
royal astronomers tried to find the solution in the stars. But on the open sea, at day or night and in
rough conditions this was too difficult. John Harrison, a Yorkshireman, believed in the problem
could be solved by precision clock. In times, when clocks considered accurate if they had an error
of few minutes a day, he created fascinating instruments with an accuracy of a few seconds per
month. He worked his whole life, so that the precise longitude could be determined with
chronometers which remained accurate on rocking ships under different climatic conditions. Finally
1761, he presented H4, an oversized pocket watch with a revolutionary escapement, to the Board
of Longitude. After a 3 months test crossing the Atlantic to Jamaica the sensation was clear. After
81 days at sea H4 lost only an unbelievable 5 seconds.
Today, as in former times, it is still the measurement of time that makes precise navigation
possible.

Timekeeping marine style – Nautis – Sattler precision on the open sea or in your home

Using a gear train developed 2 years ago, clockmaker Erwin Sattler has developed calibre 1395: a
reliable, durable, spring-wound, movement with a 15-day power reserve that also copes with the
requirements of a life at sea.
To provide an even power supply this precision movement is equipped with a steel cable and fusee.
One can see that it clearly belongs to the Subsidia movement family. It has an additional
complexity; maintaining power. The movement does not stop while it is wound. The basis for this
technology was found by the father of marine timekeepers, John Harrison, whose world famous
marine chronometers in the 18th century were equipped with a similar maintaining power system.
A handmade hand indicates, on an additional dial segment, the remaining power reserve of the
movement. The time is displayed on a silvered regulator dial like that used on precision pendulum
clocks. The hands are manually domed polished and blued in the traditional clockmakers' way. The
activities of the mechanism are not hidden, they can be seen through a panoramic crystal in the
water-resistant, solid nickeled bronce case.
Sleek elegantly cut gears, which are gold-plated against oxidation, can be seen. For longevity it is
also equipped with 12 miniature ball bearings and 11 jewels. A gold-plated Swiss lever escapement
is mounted on the back of the movement. The screwed-balance is regulated by testing over several
weeks. Such a clock meets all expectations of classic clockmaking and is an eye-catcher in your
living room – or on board your luxury yacht!

Longcase Clocks

No other timekeeper embodies the century old tradition of craftsmanship better than a grandfather
clock. They have the character of a real piece of furniture and are a symbol for comfort and well-
being. The gentle ticking with a seconds beat creates a feeling of calm and reduces the time.
Because of its imposing appearance, a grandfather clock must suit the atmosphere of the room.
The range from Erwin Sattler provides a suitable alternative. This does not mean, that style of clock
and room must be the same. What matters is the harmony of the complete ensemble. The Columna
Temporis is an absolutely unique piece which also fits with antique furniture. This clock proves that,
after 7 centuries, mechanical clockmaking has still not come to an end. It also shows that creative
and traditional manufacture is necessary to bring new life to this theme in the 21st century.

An entirely new interpretation of a free-standing clock – Sattler Columna Temporis

With »Columna Temporis« (Column of Time) the manufacturer Erwin Sattler has created a work that,
which is going to become a symbol of classical time measurement for all lovers of the extraordinary, for
all aesthetes and friends of perfection in clockmaking. The characteristic feature is the complete
transparency of the case, which surrounds the high-quality components. A blown mineral glass dome
allows an entirely unobstructed, fascinating view into the exclusively hand-made clockwork which has a
Graham escapement with stone pallets and a winding period of 30 days. The mineral glass cylinder at the
lower part of the »Column of Time« allows an unobstructed view on the invar-compensation pendulum
with fine steel pendulum bob.

The movement as well as the glass cylinder is firmly anchored in heavy stainless steel. The filigree
as well as elegant construction are supported by three pillars worked from solid metal. The stone
base of the »Column of Time« is made from black, African granite with the significant name »Nero
assoluto«. This base can be levelled and adjusted by six fine steel screws.

Typical features of our customary meticulous detail work are, as also employed in this clock, the blued
steel hands. The front view fascinates the spectator above all by the engraved, silverplated dial, through
the opening of which his glance is are directed towards the beautifully designed escapement. The high-
quality construction of the interior is furthermore characterised by the rubies in the gold-plated, screw-
fixed, chatons and by the nickel-plated, 5 mm thick brass plates of the movement. The 5 ball bearings
used in the movement and the weight pulley, and the tungsten weight, used in the construction of the
»Column of Time«, follow closely on that of the highly successful Sattler Classica Secunda1935.

The clock, with a one month power reserve gets attention with its extremely flat design – just 12 cm
in depth – and also because it strikes the hour and half-hour. Residents know always what the hour
is – even in candle-light – and the last hour struck can be repeated by pulling a cord. Alternatively
the strike can be silenced if required.

Mechanical watches are more than just timekeepers. The lovely ticking of perfectly machined parts
combine to produce masterpieces of horology many of which now have achieved collector status.
Mechanical movements are considered by many to have a life of their own. The rhythmic ticking of
mechanical movements makes hearts beat faster, many have more than just one. Most people
wear one watch, some two.
The others are stored in a safe or cabinet at home or in a safe-deposit box at the bank. Here is
where the problem starts... How to keep all those watches wound and ticking, especially those that
have special functions like a moonphase or perpetual calendar? It is a problem, unless you are one
of the exclusive owners of a watch winder.
We have the solution with our Grande PrécisionTimeMover Collector 48, a cooperation between
Erwin Sattler München, maker of the most accurate mechanical clocks in the world, and Buben &
Zörweg, cabinet and watch winder manufacturer from Austria.

Grande Précision – TimeMover Collector 48 – the time machine
The fascinating Sattler timepieces offer a precision movement with Graham escapement,
temperature and barometric compensated pendulum, and a one-month power reserve. The
escapement can be viewed through the dial. Erwin Sattler München designs and manufactures all
its own movements. How many watch manufacturers can say that? All of this gives the owner of a
Sattler timepiece an accuracy of 1-2 seconds a month or better.
The Grande Précision TimeMover Collector 48 provides the best clock that the market has to offer
in precision combined with an ensemble of 48 watch-winders arranged in six groups of four on each
side.
Each group of four has its own control panel located under each bank of twenty-four.
The watchwinder technology is a cooperation between Elma and Buben & Zörweg. We must
mention that constant winding is not always good for a quality mechanical watch. The slip clutch
built into most automatic watches would constantly be used and would cause premature wear on
spring and housing. The watch winders in the Grande Précision TimeMover Collector 48 address
this concern.
The Grande Précision TimeMover Collector 48 watch-winders have several options available to the
operator: Adjust turns per day: 600, 800 or 900. Clockwise, anti clockwise, or both. Sleep phase.
This sleep phase will allow the watch to unwind 10 hours in a 24 hour time period. Power-wind
option. With the press of a button you can start a one-hour continuous wind so you can wear the
watch with a more completely wound spring.
So as not to interfere with the quiet ticking of the Erwin Sattler Precision Pendulum clock, the
motors in the watch winders are produced by Faulhaber and use ball bearings instead of bushings.
These motors are extremely quiet and are built for longevity.

The case of the Grande Précision TimeMover Collector 48 is available with several different
options. To safeguard your collection, each Grande Précision TimeMover Collector 48 is shipped
with lockable doors. Order the optional alarm system to further protect your investment. Not only is
there enough room for 48 automatic watches but you can also store 24 more of your favourite
timepieces (hand wind or automatics) in the drawers supplied.
The Grande Précision TimeMover Collector 48 is designed for time-honoured watch setting the
mechanical way. Take a watch from the Grande Précision TimeMover Collector 48, look at the
regulator dial of the Erwin Sattler Precision Pendulum clock and set hour, minute and second hands
of the watch to the second.
We can take you back to the tradition of setting your watch using a mechanical timepiece, with all
the age-old traditions of timepiece manufacturing, watch winder technology and case design. What
is the one thing the Grande Précision TimeMover Collector 48 will not do for you? It will not decide
for you which watch to wear.
