A clock whose quality of motion ensures the accuracy of time is called a Regulator. Austrian clockmakers from Vienna attempted to produce a high-precision clock at the end of the 19th century, smaller than a floor clock.
Although Austrian may claim to have produced the first
Vienna regulators, the Germans have produced the most. It is also easier to find old Vienna regulators made in Germany. The first Viennese regulators were wall weights clocks more than a meter (39 in.) high, with a case with glass windows on three sides. Their manufacturing began in Germany by companies like Gustav Becker of Freiburg first, then Kienzle and Junghans. Later, they manufactured Viennese spring regulators with striking.
