Royal treasuries were known for uniting only the finest and most precious works of art. In the royal collection in the Warsaw Royal Palace there is a hexagonal table clock of the Lublin clockmaker Lorenc Beitelrock (Inv. No. ZKW-dep.FC/199). This suggests that this master had an excellent reputation for his outstanding clocks, especially his table clocks.

The hexagonal table clock of the renowned watchmaker shown here has a fire-gilt bronze case with silver-framed glazed windows, which allow insights into the movement. The dial with Roman and Arabic numerals is silver plated.
The movement is equipped with a verge escapement and fusee. The hour is struck on a bell. The signature „Lorenc Baytelrok Lublin“ is on the plate.
