Hotel Clock: Anstead Grandfather Clock by Hermle

Exquisite clocks have always been a central feature of upscale hotels. In fact, the original grandfather clock referred to a floor clock in the lobby of London’s George Hotel. It might be said that no hotel technology is older or more venerated than a mechanical clock. A good example is the Anstead grandfather clock.

An incredible clock for any hotel lobby or corridor, Anstead by Hermle is a magnificent, finely crafted grandfather clock that represents the very best of the tradition. The walnut cabinet (also available in dark oak and cherry), made in Vermont, is complimented by a graceful bonnet pediment. The crown feature raised, hand rubbed burl veneer overlays on top, front and sides of crown and a carved center motif, while the base has a matching hand rubbed burl veneer overlay panel on the front. Deeply hand carved face caps on the hook match the three-tiered base with hand carved face caps and outfitted with a hidden storage area.

The clock has a lockable waist door with beveled glass in the front and side panels, side access doors and floor levelers in the base. The matching set of accessories included a dial with applied brass Arabic numerals, a moving moon disk and understated cast center and corner spandrels. The pendulum bob has a matching cast center disk and the weight shells have a matching band. The Hermle flagship German-made mechanical 8-day cable driven movement plays all three of the most renowned clock melodies: Westminster, St. Michael and Whittington. The clock has a second hand feature and automatic night shut-off so as not to disrupt anyone’s slumber.
