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.
