English to German translations [PRO] / clock
English term or phrase:sentence, please
Our grandfather clock is in a traditional style with solid oak case, a swan neck pediment top and arch brass dial with moving moon and seconds hand.
"Unsere Standuhr wird in traditioneller Bauweise mit einem Uhrenkasten aus massiver Eiche, einem oberen Teil (Giebel bei Uhr????) in Form eines Schwanenhalses und einem Messingzifferblatt mit Mond- und Sekundenzeiger hergestellt."
Do you agree with this?
I think "pediment top" is just "obere Teil" since I don't think you call it "Giebel". Or is there any other professional word for this part of the long case clock. A hand is always moving, isn't it? Therefore I left this word out.
