After some time in storage the Hörz M175 turret clock has now undergone a complete restoration and is working well.
Hörz created the M175 in about 1933 and by 1970 there were 3 different models of varying size. The largest was made to drive 4 dials of up to 1.2m diameter and for bells up to 150Kg. The design idea was for a complete turret clock in a case that needed no external weights, lines, pulleys etc. It is a 3 train clock with mechanical going train, motor driven quarter hour strike and motor driven hour strike. It has electric winding for the weight and has 26 hour going reserve if the power is cut.Share this:
