Religion And Timepieces And The Oldest Clock

IMG_3512

The mystery-shrouded Sky Disc Of Nebra was used as an advanced astronomical clock over 3600 years ago and gives us a glimpse into our ancestors’ knowledge of the course of the universe and its religious interpretation. The sensation lies in the fact that the Bronze Age people managed to harmonize the solar and lunar years.

We know that Religion in general is a delicate subject especially in context of a business. But in the spirit of the famous “Ring Parable”, the centre piece of Gotthold Ephraim Lessing’s play “Nathan der Weise” , a plea for religious tolerance, we have been creating time pieces for clients/communities of many different religious orientations.

Here you can see some of the examples: the black chronograph (based on our model 1155DCS) with Hebrew time index and the star of David, the gold plated watch (based on our model 1069GD) we manufactured for the Greek Orthodox Church and the silver Mosque Islamic reverse watch (based on our model 1039G) with the hands going against the traditional direction of how a watch would function.

Contact us if you are interested in a unique wrist watch especially designed for your organisation / community!
