Hans Buschmann (1600-1662) Johann I (Hans) Buschmann was the second son of Caspar III (1563 - 1529, a rather insignificant watchmaker); Johann I seems to have been much more importance as a maker than his brother Matthäus. After his apprenticeship he worked with Jost Bürgi in Prague for some years, which must have been a superior training experience for him. After returning to Augsburg, Johann I created his master’s piece; in 1620 he inherited the right to run a smithy and established his own workshop. Johann I worked for Augustus, Duke of Brunswick; many of his clocks have been preserved - some of his bracket and mirror clocks are particularly excellent. Buschmann was one of very few makers capable of building the so-called anniversary clocks, which can run for an entire year on a single winding. Source:, as of 01/29/2015 This clock has been in Iceland for many years and was the property of Frank le Sage de Fontenay, Danish Minister to Iceland from 1924 to 1946.
