Tischuhr, Uhr, Astronomische Uhr

On the
front of the table clock there are five dials. The biggest one in the middle
consists of six rings that indicate hours, minutes, months and holidays in
different ways. The smaller dials show the days of the week, the signs of the
zodiac, sundays and the lunar cycle. The disc on the left side was used to set
the alarm.
