A few weeks ago I aquired a KIENZLE clock with a temperature compensating pendulum.
As can be seen in the photos, the pendulum was unfortunately no longer complete.
In the last photo, the pendulum is optically like the original.
My statement focuses on "optically".
Since the effect of...
Here are some photos of a new member in my collection.
It seems that this clock, and others looking like, are been sold by various manufacturers.
Notice the movement made by Hauck with the low serial number.
Some times ago I bought another clock for a friend of mine with a movement...
At this point I present a few photos
from my new KERN (K. u S. M IV Plate 1406G).
The special feature of this clock is the triangular (hexagonal) case.
I suspect that the brass castings are electrogalvanised gold-plated.
Who can tell me the easiest way to test?
Today I would like to introduce my recently acquired clock from J. Link (plate No. 1315).
The clock is not necessarily my taste! But I am a collector.
The photos speak for themselves.
Important for me is the pendulum. It seems to be quite rare. (Four Ladies)
I only had one photo with...
When I saw this clock, it did not take a minute, and the clock was mine.
Unfortunately I had overlooked in my euphoria that the glass in the front door was missing .
The attempt to reverse the purchase failed.
So now I have a four-glass clock with only three glasses!
And the missing...
One of my last purchases is this Vosseler
The condition is excellent based on the many years that have gone.
Above attached photos prove this statement.
Everything seems to be in the state in which this clock once left the factory.
That this is not always the case, shows one of my...
Here are many photos of my latest acquisition.
they certainly raise many questions but also provide some answers
First answer of mine: NO FAKE
It's really a clock with a cylinder escapement, as a miniature clock.
Pay special attention to the execution and numbering
There is no...
ELECTRONIC BULLE - CLOCK
I found this ELECTRONIC BULLE - CLOCK on the RIKKETIK watch fair in the Netherlands.
Well, there will be some who say what is special about this BULLE - CLOCK.
BULLE - CLOCKS are all battery powerd, that means they are electric!
This clock differs from all...
An extremely interesting clock for my collection!
I bought the clock described below again in the Netherlands.
The seller, however, was my friend egrot (his name in this forum).
The special thing is that we live less than 100 km away from each other.
Let's talk about the clock.
I would like to introduce my new Bulle at this forum.
The clock is in good condition and works very well.
There are only a few things to improve.
I will certainly report about that and show more photos
when I have done this work.
At this moment, there are more important things to do!.
After introducing my new JUF under "A new old JUF for my collection" few days ago, John Hubby noted, the clock is probably a marriage.
I have consented to this assumption.
Now it took me only 5 minutes to make a real KIENZLE from the JUF/KIENZLE Marriage.
However, writing this article...
Here are some photos of 3 of my JUF clocks having an arrow pendulum.
John asked me for the serial numbers and photos of the back plate.
On my JUF sriker, I do not see any number.
The two recognizable serial numbers are 96814 and 95083.
I still have another arrow pendulum, but I bought...
Here are the photos of another clock, I also bought on Sunday at RIKKETIK market in the Netherlands.
I saw a photo of this clock years ago and i thought, it would like, to own it.
Now it is part of my collection
The clock is, as you can see, in a really good condition.
The pendulum is...
Today I would like to introduce a very special clock. Especially the factory and manufacturer or distributor.
I found and bought it last sunday on the RIKKETIK watch exchange in the Netherlands. (Bild 01)
First thing I saw was the large marble base
(weight about 3.5 kG diameter = 230mm...
On my last visit to the clock market RIKKETIK in Netherlands, I have acquired a Würthner.
It differs in some respects from my other.
There are first the small plates (back Plate No.1592), and the somewhat different pendulum.
The shown photo of the Pendulum is from my post "Würthner...
When a new clock or a new movement becomes my own, I am usually more interested in technology than in optical design.
Whether someone likes a clock or not, has a lot to do with taste.
My interest in technology encourages me offen to take a closer look, and sometimes also to think of...
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...
A gigantic torsion pendulum clock
Here in Germany, in Mecklenburg-Vorpommen, in the small town Leppin, there is the gear workshop of Helmut Schmidt.
A passion of Helmut Schmidt is building special clocks.
Among other interesting clock projects, it seems, he has build the most probable largest...
Anton Harder??? SNo 4156
or Schatz & Wintermantel???
Two weeks ago, I picked up this one!! Found it on the watch market RIKKETIK in the Netherlands.
It has serial no.(4156 and R) as You may see. The condition is very good, no wonder - finished gildet.
The dial is also in very good...
Here are some photos of my new "old Vosseler".
After purchasing this watch, I have found that the Size
of the glass dome and the wooden base are exceptional.
Luckily the clock was complete.
I've seen specialy this clock highly polished in this forum. And I like the result..
However, I've been...
