FULLY RESTORED KIENZLE WESTMINSTER CHIME BRACKET CLOCK. For your consideration is an impressive German made Kienzle Westminster chime bracket clock. The clock was given as a wedding gift in 1925 as noted by the brass plaque that is attached to the top of the case.
Case is in good condition with fancy barley twist columns on each side of the dial. Case measures 12.75 inches tall by 11.5 inches wide by 7.25 inches deep. There are two subsidiary dials that allow you to silence the chimes from the front of the clock and adjust the clock speed. Glass is beveled and in great condition. The clock plays the Westminster Chime of 4 notes at quarter after, 8 notes at half past, 12 notes at quarter till, and then the full sixteen notes at the top of the your and then strikes out the hours on the longest rod.
Please look carefully at the 12 attached pictures as they provide a large amount of the description of this fine timepiece. WHAT MAKES A CLOCK A GOOD VALUE? The rules of economics are fairly straightforward.
Simply put, it is almost impossible to spend a little and get a lot. Antique and vintage clocks follow these rules as well. I have tried through the photos to show the basic steps that I do in restoring these wonderful machines to their original state. My goal is to provide you with a quality time piece that will provide enjoyment and be a source of pride in your home for years to come.
Equally important to me is to provide you with a clock that I believe will retain its value over the years. That is what I think constitutes real value in antique and vintage clocks.MY PHILOSOPHY ON CLOCKS AND CLOCK MOVEMENTS. The only way to properly repair a movement is to completely disassemble, clean and inspect all parts, and make the needed repairs by proper horological methods. This includes the rebushing of all worn holes and the polishing of any rough pivots. The movements are then reassembled, lubricated with a high quality clock oil and test run for 8 days. This is a very time intensive process but is the only correct way to properly recondition a clock movement.
You should expect a movement repaired in this manner to run for ten years trouble-free. I have been doing clock repair for over 35 years. I apprenticed under an Oregon State licensed repairman and have been a member of the National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors (NAWCC) since 1981. I do not make a living doing this; it has become a passion of mine.
Once they are made like new mechanically, I put them up for sale in the hopes of paying for my materials and upgrading my personal collection. My hope is also to provide you with an heirloom to cherish for years to come.
Read my feedback and you can see that I live by these words. I also provide a set of General Clock Instructions that will answer about 95% of the questions that may arise during the setup of the clock. I start with a high-quality box. More than pleased with this clock and its excellent condition!
