I am looking for information on the the clock, the clock movement does not have the "M" numbers on the back of it, just the flying wheel and a serial number of 57382. It is a beautiful clock and it's Westminster chime is sweet. There is a white badge or label that states Patent in USA. Underneath that is a date range Sept 13,1814 - Sept 2, 1902, (the 1902 date is the date I use to date it). Underneath the dates in big bold letters it states The Kienzle Clock Co. underneath that is the Flying Winged Wheel logo, and underneath that is New York. Can anyone also recommend a book or repair manual on this clock?

Thanks

Since it shows a patent date of 1914, it cannot be older than 1914.

The Kienzle (Germany) trademark that shows on your movement was registered 1910.

In addition, the Kienzle Clock Co. of New York City (as opposed to Schlenker & Kienzle in Germany) were importers. Founded in 1912 and liquidated in 1918, they had a short life and unhappy end.

So your clock was made between 1914 and 1918.

Regards.

I mistyped the date in the post, the first year date should have been 1814.

Thanks for this, but it does not change the vinatge of your clock being made between 1914 and 1918 when The Kienzle Clock Company was in exisitence.
