Two clocks made by Kern & Söhne
Today I would like to introduce again 2 clocks, both made by Kern & Söhne.
A complement to my extensive collection.
Both clocks are probably from the same time, I think 50 to 60 years old.
The optical difference is all the more surprising.
The first one seems to have escaped straight to Rococo,
The other is simple factually sober.
I personally like the simple better. But that is a pure taste.
Nevertheless, as a collector you want to have them all !!
The History of Rococo:
This clock was already converted to a Quartz clock, don't know why.
For this reason I was able to purchase it at a flea market for small money.
Then I searched for the photos of the original clock, and I found some.
Thanks to my spare warehouse I was able to reverse the conversion,
needing little time and little cost.
I used a movement with Plate No 1406F.
The second clock has a special feature.
A movement, With only 6 beats per minute. (Plate No 1406A)
Thus, the pendulum turns slower than usual (20 seconds for a full period).
I like it when the pendulum turns slowly.
But that too is taste.
Because I love slow turning pendulums, like ATMOS does, I have some projekts
and I am making some experiments. Maybe, I will write a separate article next time.
