  • This impressive floor standing Vienna style regulator is named for the Viennese opera singer during the Biedermeier era, Josphine “Pipi” Fröhlich who made her operatic debut in Mozart’s opera Die Entführung aus dem Serail in 1821. The clock is an impressive example of horological art, with an elegant and understated cabinet featuring burl accents and mother-of-pearl inlay. The clock is quite narrow and flat, which further the statement towards quiet and reserved excellence.

    The dial displays the open, jeweled escapement below the 12:00 position. The three-weight mechanism ticks very slowly, at 1.25 seconds per tick (or 48 beats per minute). The amplitude is also very small, which also increases it’s prestige.

    The Westminster chime gives a sonorous reminder every quarter hour on long, tuned steel rods.

    Clearly a timeless classic, the Josephine has a cable-wound precision movement with automatic beat adjustment and maintaining power. This means that the clock will continue to run, even while you are cranking the weight cables once per week.

    The Josephine is by Kieninger and exclusively available through North Coast Imports.
