Celestial Globe with Clockwork, dated 1579Movement by Gerhard Emmoser (Austrian, active 1556, died 1584)Made in Vienna, AustriaCase of silver, partly gilt, and gilt brass; movement of brass and steel
The silver globe, engraved with representations of the constellations, revolves to simulate the apparent movement of the stars, while the sun moves along the path of the ecliptic in accord with the sun’s apparent motion through the zodiac during the year. The small dial (a replacement) near the top of the meridian ring registers mean solar time, while a movable ring within the horizon circle functions as a calendar. Emmoser, who began his career in Heidelberg, Germany, was appointed clockmaker to two of the great imperial patrons of art and science in the sixteenth century, Maximilian II (r. 1564–76) and Rudolf II (r. 1576–1612).
