Handcrafted clocks made in the heart of Munich.
The time is displayed with fixed hands, and turning rings.
This technique has existed since the beginning of clock making. It is not a new invention, but a contemporary interpretation.
Modern design, modern materials and modern technology combined with the traditional art of clock making makes this clock the unique object in the room.
With its elegant and simple form, this clock is crafted to the highest quality from the finest materials.
The clock case is constructed from wood and glass, technical ceramics for the numerical rings and a gold-plated clockwork movement gives the design a unique modern look.
The eye-catching object in the room.
Traditionally crafted in our workshop, with manual finishing of every component, every clock is a special object.
A horizontally lying clockwork movement with high quality ball-bearings, surrounded by glass. The case alone consists of 48 components. The construction of the gold plated 14-day clock movement, with its elaborate and hand decorated escapement is unique. The execution of the motion-work is particularly special, as is the winding mechanism through the central axis by the key located within the removable top. The clock strikes every half hour on a solid, free hanging gong rod.
Combined with the column, it forms a long-case clock.
Passionate about clock making.
Born 1968 in Munich.
At the age of 12, Andreas Fritsch watched his father repair a cuckoo clock. Since then, he has consistently followed his ambition to become a clockmaker. After getting his Master Craftsman diploma, he went to the International Clock Museum in La-Chaux-De-Fonds, Switzerland in 1990. There he studied to become a restorer of antique clocks.
Since 2000, Andreas Fritsch is self-employed as a clock restorer, with his workshop in the heart of Munich. With his love for clocks and eye for detail, many antique and complex clocks are restored and brought to life again here.
In this atmosphere, inspired by antique clocks and their creators, the clock “Le Cercle” originated.
"My biggest passion are clocks – they are a piece of artwork in the room."
