Anton Lis(z)t is one of the most famous clockmakers of the most important era of the art of Austrian clockmaking. In the first half of the 19th century, Vienna was a leading and important horological center due to its precise wall regulators, the “Laterndluhren” and “Dachluhren”. Anton Liszt, born in 1799 in St. Georgen am Leithagebirge, became a master in 1828 and was known for his extremely high-quality wall regulators. The present month-going “Laterndluhr”-regulator captivates with a well-proportioned case made of precious mahogany veneer. Its elegant shape is further emphasized by a linear maple inlay. The silver-plated dial with Roman numerals bears the signature of its famous creator „A. Liszt“. The small dial ring in the upper half of the dial is a so-called “jumping second”. The second hand is coupled to the pendulum – a long seconds pendulum – and moves in time with its oscillation. It is driven by means of an eccentric weight, i.e. one that runs to the side of the pendulum. The movement with one-month duration is equipped with a Graham escapement.
