    Picked up this anniversary clock a couple months ago. Measure 15" tall. Obviously missing the dome and the dohicky thingy that holds the pendulum. Pendulum was wrapped in a local newspaper page from 1956 when I got it. Face says Germany as does the back but no make. Also has the number 51149 on the back. Any idea where to get a replacement part and if it is worth fixing? Also age and make? Thanks. IMG_20190218_125648997~2.jpg IMG_20190218_174359357.jpg IMG_20190218_174410104.jpg

    Looks like a Kieninger & Obergfell from the 1930s. Plate 1615 might be the plate...I have notes that say the pallet inspection holes are missing from the plate diagram. I think the "Made in Germany" was added later by someone. Certainly worth fixing. Kundo suspension parts should be pretty easy to find.

    Hi Allen,

    Very nice Kundo you have there. It is certainly worth fixing up. You can get a complete suspension unit from Horolovar here:

    400 Day Clock Suspension Unit

    You will want unit #1. You can contact them directly to ensure you get exactly what you need. If they ask, your pendulum is number 35 in the guide.

    One thing I notice is the case is not assembled correctly. The tops and bottoms of the six columns should mirror each other. Your case has the capitals placed upside down beneath the finials above the top of the case. They should be assembled like this:

    Otherwise the proper suspension spring will appear too long.

    There is a long screw that runs the entire length inside each of the columns. The finials act as the nuts.
