WEMPE – Mechanical Clocks

In the range of products of WEMPE Chronometerwerke you will also find mechanical clockworks. The instruments are equipped with an 8-day mechanical movement and are wound with the help of the supplied clock key. All mechanical clocks are also equipped with a chiming mechanism as used on ships. A typical aspect of the mechanical clocks is the dial with two winding holes. The clock chime of the mechanical clocks strikes every half hour in an exactly fixed pattern, which repeats itself every 4 hours. This means that the ship's bell clock chimes at 12:30 once and every half hour afterwards it strikes again, so in total it strikes 8 times until 16:00. In the past, the clock chimes on board of ships were a great help for those who were standing watch, since they could keep up with the progress of time during their service hours thanks to the regular chimes. Clockwork and striking mechanism are separate systems. Therefore, the striking mechanism can be turned off separately by means of a small switch on the front, while the clocks keep on functioning. The mechanical clocks of WEMPE are fabricated in individual series for lovers of classic clocks and also a reminder of the windjammer era with their 8-day clockwork. These WEMPE clocks are an expression of the high appreciation for the precision works of art made by clockmakers of their day.
