The Tellurium is a unique clock that reproduces the annual orbit of the earth around the sun, with the earth rotating around its own axis once in 24 hours. The moon, in turn, revolves around the earth in 29.5 days, completing a full rotation around its axis. This moon rotation allows the reproduction of the different moon phases as they are visible from earth.
Inside, you'll find an 8-day spring wound mechanical clock movement with a 4/4 Westminster chime on 4 polished bells and separate second hand feature. The 11 jewel deadbeat escapement polished brass disc has milled zodiac signs and rosettes in addition to the months and days of the year. The Tellurium has reproductions of the sun, earth and moon, incorporating the day/month indicator.
