Until I have managed making new pages, have a quick look at the previous entries. Prices given here will not change.
Kieninger weight driven movements for LONG – CASE CLOCKS, 1/2 HOUR STRIKE, ( bim-bam ) on 3 gong-rods.
Variants on two Gong tubes or two Bells are still in the testing stage, as Kieninger’s standard supply does not cater for that.
ARCH DIALS ( Tempus Fugit ) or Moon phase dial, brass + engraved or applied numerals on silvered ring.
As I had always done, I check the movements, clean and re-oil them prior to testing them for a few days, so I can give the full 12-month guarantee. After-sales service I do in my workshop. The recommended clock movement / dial combinations are flexible to a degree, as I have other dials, pendulums and weight shells. Please contact me for any queries you might have. Please note: When planning to build a clock case, please inquire about the minimum measurements needed for the casing, otherwise you might not be able to buy the movement you want.
New – the Hermle ref. 0130 mantel clock movement with bell strike:
I prepared one prototype with dial and holder complete to simplify fitting the unit into a mantel clock case.
An option would be a different back plate and fittings (without the 2- pillar stand) to mount the movement as a wall clock. – working on it – Feb. 2022
The 8-day spring-wound movement strikes the half and full hours onto two bells. The time-keeper is a balance, not a pendulum, as in large clocks.
The price of the movement complete including courier charges within South Africa will be R 2200.–
The simple “Country Clock” case is an ideal example for the bell-strike movement. The dial measures 150 mm. The hands I made from brass, in order to give them a special finish – black with the brass showing at the edges. Even small features give a special touch. Similar to you working with wood and crafting carefully thought-out details.
The Arch Dial, 160 mm wide x 212 mm high is an option to the round dial.
It will have winding holes and be one unit with the movement.
Another possible choice might be a 200 mm square brass dial with cast corner ornaments. That would need a new chapter ring or a complete round disc to be made locally.
On the far right you can see the movements ex. factory. Maybe as somebody in the trade you need to replace an old clockworks? Please inquire for further details.
Another alternative, just for the movements and dials and factory hands – not assembled:
Make an offer for the dozen I have in stock. Please inquire.
Long-case clock movements (Grandfather / Grandmother)
(new illustrations in preparation)
I have stock of 1/2 doz. Kieninger PK strike movements, but only 3 sets of gong-rods ( not chime ), for the rest I will use bells and gong-tubes, either single or double strike.
These PK movements have two weights on chains, 116 cm pendulum, (one with a 93 cm) wooden rods. Starting from R 4400.–
One PS – 116 cm movement ( Weights on pulleys and cables ) with enamel dail 240 mm diameter should be available later in the year. I will have brass holders made locally for that PS movement and the others with round dials.
A variety of dials mostly in brass, moon – phase 395 x 280 mm. The arch dials (Tempus Fugit) 280 x 375 mm with various chapter rings.
One grandmother – size movement ( 93 cm pendulum ) will be available with a matching set of a 330 x 250 mm “Tempus Fugit” dial, weights, chains and pendulum in dark grey pewter colour.
if you are thinking of building a clock case, now is the time.
However, my stock gets very limited, I only have the small Hermle mantel / wall clock movements and the Kieninger PK chain – type for Long-Case-Clocks and a few “skeleton” clocks with glass dome as well.
