Focusing on a masterpiece

Winding of the astronomical art clock build by Hermann Goertz

It is one of the most impressive and important pieces of the exhibition of the German Watch Museum: the astronomical art clock built by Hermann Goertz. A watchmaker winds up the watch for the public once a month and explains it in detail. Because of the corona pandemic we currently cannot show the winding “live” in our museum. That is why the team of the German Watch Museum made a little video for you. Have a look over the watchmaker’s shoulder and discover the “Great Clock” online.
