|"IGNATZ" -- THE HOROLOVAR FLYING PENDULUM CLOCK|
in 1959, The Horolovar Company made arrangements with Gebr. Staiger, clock factory in St. Georgen, Germany, to have an original New Haven Clock Company "Flying Pendulum Clock" reproduced.
The Reproduction shown here, made its first appearance in the United States in 1960, Since then The Horolovar Company has sold the clock in the United States, and the factory, licensed by Horolovar, has exported it to dealers in many other countries. By the end of 1967, over 10,000 people had enjoyed "Ignatz".
Scientists have developed the atomic clock, accurate to one second in four hundred years, but people are happy to live with "Ignatz", which may gain or lose twenty minutes a day, even when carefully regulated.

Columbus Clock Reproduction|
||The Horolovar Anno 1492 Columbus Clock
Is a faithful reproductionof the original American
clock made for the 1893Columbian Exposition
However, the reproduction is made of
sterner stuff than was
available in the 1890's.
Carefully fabricated by the Adolf Held Company,
an established Black Forest manufacturer of
wooden wheel clocks, the Horolovar reproduction
has been made under quality controls unknown in 1893
All of the wood has been kiln-dried and chemically
impregnated to prevent expansion, contraction,
and warping. The bushings and escape teeth are made
of long-lasting, practically frictionless nylon.
