The watchmaking craft is one of the oldest areas of precision mechanics. The Horaculix HC1 is a watch set for assembling a mechanical table clock and brings the magic of this traditional craft to your home.
Precision clockwork from Hermle
The heart of the Horaculix HC1 is a clockwork of the family business Hermle. The watchmaker from the Swabian Alb has been a specialist for large watches since 1922. High accuracy and perfect precision make Hermle watches worldwide renowned. For our watch kit, we chose the Hermle work 0130-677. It has a running time of about 7 days and is about 3 times bigger than the movement of a wristwatch. The ideal size for an exciting watch project at home. The clockwork is equipped with a striking mechanism. If the striking mechanism is wound up, the gongs sound at every half hour and full hour. The sound of the gong can be deactivated by not raising the striking mechanism.
Case of the Black Forest
The case is handmade. Our partner is a family business from the Black Forest, which is specialized in the manufactory of large clock cases since 1938 in the third generation. Two large glass windows offer a clear view of the mechanical clockwork. Available case variants: oiled natural oak, lacquered oak in the colors black, amarena-red or barista-brown.
The assembly instructions are written especially for watch enthusiasts without technical knowledge or particular technical skills. Each step is described and illustrated in detail.
