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.
