Pieter Visbach Hague Clock with brass dial plate (37,4 x 20,5 cm), covered with black velvet and turning on hinges, gilt brass skeleton chapter ring, with the even minutes numbered (2 x 60 minutes), with the minute hands revolving once in two hours. Gilt brass hands and gilt brass skeleton signature, signed: Pieter Visbach Haghe.
Only a few Haghe Clocks have this 2 x 60 minuts feature. The book 'Spring-driven Dutch Pendulum Clocks' by Dr. R. Plomp  mention three clocks by Pieter Visbagh, one by van Driessen (in the Vehmeyer collectie) and one by Claude Pascal. The Vehmeyer collection (book) describes 49 Haghe Clocks and here is another one by Pieter Visbagh.
Case: Veneered with ebony and red tortoiseshell, 37,4 x 17,0 x 12,5 cm.
Movement: Going and striking trains with four wheels and driven by a single barrel; plates 12,6 x 10,8 cm, back plate signed; Pieter Visbach Fecit Haghae. Striking only the hours, going for 4 days.

Pieter Visbagh (1634-1722) was for 30 years the most prominent watchmaker of the Hague. He was born in this town in 1634 and became apprentice for 6 years of Salomon Coster. In 1652 he left to Middelburg, where he possible worked with Adam Oosterwijck, father of Severijn Oosterwijck. After the sudden death of Salomon Coster in 1659 he came back to The Hague where he took over the house and workshop from the widow of Salomon Coster (Jannetje Hartloop) on the eastside of the Torenstraat, not far from the great church. He took over the apprentice Christiaan Reinaert. Not much later he rented a house in the Wagenstraat/Veerkade and bought it in 1671.
In the following 30 years he became the most prominent clockmaker in the Hague until Johannes van Ceulen became even more famous. Both clockmakers worked for Christiaan Huygens (1629-1695) and both were very productive.

In 1688 The Hague Clockmakers Gilde was founded and Pieter Visbagh became first Master.

Pieter Visbagh (or Pieter Visbach) died in 1722 but he probably stopped working shortly after 1700.
