This magnificent mantel clock impresses with its unusual one-week strike movement. It was made by the renowned Viennese clockmaker Friedrich Quinche who signed it on the silver-plated dial as well as on the wire gong holder. The ormolu case has a nearly completely engine turned surface – even the pendulum bob is decorated with guilloche pattern. On a high base are four columns which carry the case drum and an entablature with cornices. The case drum has two glazed windows with curved glass on its sides, which make it possible to see the movement. The movement with one-week duration is equipped with a Viennese grande sonnerie on wire gongs.
