The Eye of Providence is hand crafted in Germany by Mauthe, whose family has been making clocks since 1844. This is a beautiful example of a Fusee Skeleton Clock, and employs Mauthe’s particular skill and fascination with the dazzling properties of Swarovski crystals.
“Used in antique spring-powered mechanical watches and clocks, a fusee (from the French fusée: wire wound around a spindle) is a cone-shaped pulley with a helical groove around it, wound with a cord or chain which is attached to the mainspring barrel. Fusees were used as early as the 15th century to the early 20th century to improve timekeeping by equalizing the uneven pull of the mainspring as it ran down.” (from WIkipedia) This fusee also actually uses a six-foot long jeweled chain!
This clock also features a bejeweled symbol for the “Eye of Providence,” which represents divine and fortuitous destiny.
This exquisite timepiece is made of 24-carat Gold Plating and has a total carat weight of over 811. It has a total of 4,232 Swarovski® Topaz, Swarovski® Zirconia and other genuine Gemstones cut by Swarovski®.
