A Basic Overview: A Emilian Wehrle Trumpeter Clock Movement

We always get emails from people asking, How does it work?

So... We decided to do some videos of our clocks inner workings and give a basic overview.

We hope you will enjoy this opportunity to take a peek into some seldom seen clocks, and leave with a better appreciation of Black Forest Horology.

We will try our best to add a new "how does it work video" each week.

This first video is of an Emilian Wehrle Trumpeter clock movement.

Emilian Wehrle made some fantastic musical clocks in Furtwangen Germany in the mid to late 19th C.

This movement is much larger and more substantial than it looks in the video.

The brass plates are the size of a yellow page phone book.It takes allot of power to generate the needed air pressure.
