Vintage Ceiling Lamps and Spotlights

Spots or ceiling lights? Time to cut the dropped ceiling always arises this question. So in what situations would be recommended to install spots and ceiling lights?

Advantages and Disadvantages

Spots are modern and efficient (100% of the lamp lighting is transferred to the environment). There are models of various colors, shapes, and all sorts of lamps. They are excellent for directional lighting, that is, close focus (lantern effect). They work very well in the highlighted environments, objects, work areas and also with decorative purposes. They use halogen bulbs (not recommend) and led.

Manuel GutiÉRrez, The Great Spanish Watchmaker From The 18th Century

Manuel Gutiérrez was born in Sigüenza to 1740, settling in Madrid at an early age. He never left the country and boasted of having learned never anything of any foreigner. Without a doubt, it seems that it was a very particular character. Now their thirty competed to obtain the square of director of the Royal School of watchmaking that Carlos III created, however luck was not on their side, in the vast majority of contests in which participated, either in the Royal factory of watchmaking as Chamber of King’s watchmaker, charges were always occupied by foreign watchmakers, or by Spaniards who had done their learning outside the country. However, his creations were at the height of the best watchmakers of the time, and that not the slightest doubt.

Manuel Gutiérrez made extraordinary watches for King Charles III and the Infante Luis, two windowed desktop clocks with a great strike, one of which is still preserved in the Royal Palace of Madrid: it’s the “Skeleton” created in 1772 in steel and ormolu with dimensions of 35 x 22 x 13 cm. The machine is locked in a cage of glass since the artifice, proud of his work, didn’t want any hidden machinery.

Another of his great works of Toledo Cathedral clock, a clock timedictionary is called “clock of la Puerta de la Feria” in 1792 which still works today. It is characterized by its high degree of complexity, and presents two external spheres, one towards the street, over the door which gives name and another inside the temple. The clock has two rooms that divide on the one hand the pulleys with a moat and protected by other machinery and gears of the clock.


History of the Wall Clock

We found some of the facts of the history of the clock in the names given by the public to some models. The Officier clock, for example, owes its name, nothing more and nothing less than Napoleon. The invention of the mechanical movement of spring had already allowed to considerably reduce the size of the clock, thus giving rise to the so-called “travel clockes” or chariot. One of the first clocks of spring seems to have been offered by Jean de Paris to Louis XI, King of France, in 1480. While it is true, France always has been closely linked to the world of clockmaking, highlighting many of his creations all over the World Grand Master Abraham Louis Breguet, who performed some splendid specimens for his way – and logically – its content is a great example of this supremacy.

Napoleon was a soldier, as it is well known, brilliant, a great quarterback in the programming and design of the battles. However, once ran the risk of losing a job as one of its commanders he came late to the appointment. It was then that the commander demanded that officers would always have a mantel clock.

Thus, orders arriving makers workshops as a result of this firm decision wore written “une pendule pour officier”, hence Officier is his name.

In the next image you can see one of the most characteristic of this style clockes. It’s a clock of coach with repetition of rooms, large and small clock, alarm clock, calendar and moon phases, carried out in the last decade of the 19th century by l. Leory & Cie of craftinlearning. At the auction of Antiquorum of 1993 was assessed among the 24,000 and the 26,000 Swiss francs.

Electric clocks

Electric clocks really meant two things. The first, can use electricity as the main source of power or use electric current as your oscillator. This power would come from the AC mains.

Mechanical clocks

Mechanical clocks rely on a pendulum or balance wheel to provide continuous movement and used gears to move clockwise. Clock measures time according to the resonance, as it does with the oscillations of the pendulum. Many antique clocks, grandfather clocks and cuckoo clocks, are mechanical clocks and gears and wheels inside can be very complex.
