Description


Probably the rarest of all Lenzkirch clocks is the model 774 Astronomical Regulator. Or as Lenzkirch called it, "The Normaluhr". I have no idea why they would call this a normal Uhr (clock). It is anything but normal. One look at the dial and massive pendulum and you know this is a special clock. These clocks were available in either Walnut or Mahogany wood and with either a dull matt finished or polished. This clock is in a polished Walnut case. Probably the most desirable wood and finish. The Astro dial is made up of 3 dials. One for the seconds, one for the minutes and one for the hours. Each hand is direct drive from a gear in the movement. This eliminates the need for the normal motion works or gearing that drives the hands on a clock with a standard dial configuration. The measurements are: 79 inches high, 22 inches wide, 12 inches deep and the dial is 11.5 inches to the outside of the bezel. This clock is located in Michigan. Local pickup only no shipping.
