Richard Hermle based his fabulous Telurium on the Himmelsmaschinen (heaven’s machines) developed and built by the Swabian priest and clock maker, Philipp Matthaus Hahn, in the 18th century. The quartz skeleton movement, ensuring accuracy and aesthetics, drives this highly complex timepiece. The time is indicated on the white dial. The rotation of the Earth indicates the 12 signs of the Zodiac, month and days, on the cylinder dial. Moon circles Earth every 29 ½ days while rotating on its axis once in that time. Earth rotates on its axis every 24 hours. It takes a whole year for Earth to turn around the Sun. Richard Hermle designed this fabulous and wonderful timepiece on the eve of his clock-making career, his last hurrah… Mounted on a black lacquered wooden base, with a hand-blown crystal glass dome. Uses one “C” battery. 9” x 9” x 12”
