Complicated Mid-Century Incline Plane Clock

Period 1950-1979
Description Inv. #: g161
Maker: Gubelin
Description: A wonderfully designed Mid-Century incline plane clock that incorporates mid-century design with an unusually complicated movement showing hours, minutes, the day of week and the date.
Case: The steel incline frame is supported by shaped enamel stands at each side and carries the engraved gilt-brass seven day calendar scale along the front edge.
Dial: The engraved patinated aluminum dial has stylized marks for the hours, a 31-day calendar chapter, three gilt hands and is signed ‘Gubelin, Swiss’.
Movement: The jeweled high quality layered 7-day movement has the balance wheel planted between the plates, is stamped ‘Gubelin, Swiss, Fifteen 15 Jewels’, has a large lead counter-weight, is suspended in the gilt-brass drum by a central shaft captured on both sides by roller bearing bushings and has the fast/slow out the back. It’s wound each week by placing the drum at the top of the felt covered incline once it reaches the bottom.
Notes: The base is stamped in numerous places ‘6’.
This is the first mid-century incline plane clock we’ve seen. It is also the first incline plane clock to have a minute hand and the first to have a date feature.
