"Time is the most important ingredient in the recipe of life" wrote the British naturalist Charles Darwin.

To that, the clock company, Erwin Sattler KG of Munich Germany would add:

Design, Precision & Craftsmanship.
Their clocks are truly works of art! And like art, they will last for many generations, a cherished family heirloom.  

Marine Chronometer: Stainless Steel, Power reserve indicator, Fusee / Cable driven gear train. A fusee is a tapered spindle designed to apply an equal pressure to the gear train as the spring unwinds. Otherwise the force of the spring is greatest when fully wound and diminishes as the springs unwinds, affecting the accuracy of the clock.

The clock can be used as a table or wall clock. Three adjustable legs with rubber feet allow the clock to be mounted on a curved ship's hull and mount it securely by lifting the clock away from the hull to lock onto mounting bolt.

Please read!       Pryer to 2000 Sattler made some clocks for their line, that did not use Sattler movements. This allowed Sattler to have a wider prices selection. These are high quality movements from well respected manufacturers, from commercial production runs. Sattler has very small production runs of their movements, with more attention to finish detail, and upgraded features like steel ball bearings and jeweled bushing.  

#1122c  Dose Not Have a Sattler movements. 

However,  Sattler would never use low quality movements in clocks with their name on it.  By 2003 they had stopped listing none Sattler movement clocks on their price list.

Almost ALL of Sattler’s small table clocks use a French made or Swiss made clockwork with either a jeweled balance wheel escapement or pendulum escapement  ( #1122c).  
***See catalog photos below of some of these table clocks.
During my years as a dealer, Sattler made 3 clockworks that were used in 4 or 5 table clock models and these were LARGE table clocks.

Alarm clock, Sattler # 1002, Cherry and Walnut.  12 day movement by Cyma Watch, Swiss. 17 jeweled movement, single winding arbor, turn  right to wind bell, turn left to wind main spring.   The “alarm” will  automatically shut off after 5 to 10 seconds.  To be honest the “bell”  (clapper, more like it)  will not wake you up.   But it makes a very good desk clock and the alarm can be used to remind you of an appointment or phone call you need to make.

Comes with Sattler box and papers.        Asking $750,   in 1997 was $1400
