Automaton Matterhorn Wall Clock
This wall clock Automaton Matterhorn is made of several layers of wood, woodstained and painted high quality acrylic paint and a piece of acrylic mirror. The front elements of the clock are decorated with detailed and intricate engraving. Stainless steel elements and copper coated screws are used in the construction of this clock model.
We decided to start a series of wallclocks dedicated to famous peaks and mountains of the world. Among first three is Mount Everest, Mont Blanc and Matterhorn each of which is now not only a geographical point but an iconic symbol. This wallart will be a great gift for one who hears the call of the mountains even at home or in the office.
The Matterhorn is a mountain of the Alps, straddling the main watershed and border between Switzerland and Italy. It is a large, near-symmetrical pyramidal peak in the extended Monte Rosa area of the Pennine Alps, whose summit is 4,478 metres high, making it one of the highest summits in the Alps and Europe.
The hands motion is complemented by the movement of 3 gears each of which is an AA battery operated. The mirror on the background adds some volume to the clock and amplifies the movement effect, transforming the clock into a kinetic installation.
Upon request the clock can be personalized with a text engraving, which will neatly supplement the look of the clock face.
