MADE IN JAPAN
TAKATA Lemnos Inc. was founded in 1947 as a brass casting manufacturing industry in Takaoka-city, Toyama Prefecture, Japan and we launched out into the full-scale business trade with Seiko Clock Co., Ltd. since 1966.
The traditional colouring technique of “Takaoka Douki(copper)”, named “Nuka yaki shudo-shoku” was applied to each clock.
The black satin colour with a speckled pattern is made by blackening after drawing out the pattern using a chemical and heating. The silver finish with a speckled pattern is achieved by applying pure silver plating. While the gas-bronze colour with a speckled pattern is produced by the green rust that forms when the clock face is exposed to ammonia gas.
Quaint is a wall clock which was inspired by the clock face of an old clock tower. The brass of the clock’s dial and outer periphery are exposed by polishing.
