It may be the smallest table clock in the rangeBASELWORLD 2013: The Stellaris by Erwin Sattler

The stunning high-precision movement is equipped with a Swiss escapement and a gear stopwork, also known simply as the stopwork. This limits the power reserve to exactly eight days, cleverly using the middle tension of the mainspring and allowing for the most precise rate of the movement.

The Stellaris also boasts the "regulator dial" so often seen in clocks from the Sattler manufacture – a result of the company's great affinity for classic precision clocks – which features a large minute hand and small subsidiary dials for hours and seconds.

Inside, the ten milled and gold-plated gear wheels, which turn in 12 precision ball bearings and 11 jewel bearings, are signs of the clock's quality construction, while the polished hand arbor, tempered navy blue steel hands and high-gloss polish on the dial screws discreetly underscore the Sattler origins of the Stellaris.
