Kieninger clocks are counted among the classics of the industry. With a
select line of fine mechanical grandfather, wall, and mantel clocks, the modern
quartz line and attractive tabletop clocks, Kieninger offers unique and
individually designed clocks of the highest quality.
Kieninger is the oldest existing manufacturer of mechanical movements for floor,
wall and mantel clocks in the world. Kieninger movements excel with a high level
of design and manufacturing quality. Numerous innovations and patents (16-rod
chimes; second indication for pendulum lengths under 116 cm; automatic beat
adjustment, nighttime shut-off systems for 1/2-hour and 1/4-hour movements;
automatic chime sequencing; various manufacturing processes and components) are
the measure for design quality.
Manufacturing quality shows in every
movement: All movement plates are made of a special brass alloy which is hard
and has a tensile strength [Rm] of 520 N/mm2. The holes for the journals are
reamed and smoothened after lacquering and then receive an oil sink.
Pinions are made of high-quality steel or stainless steel. Fast turning
pinions are hardened. All journals are roller burnished in a special process.
Some movements feature bronze-bushings and/or jewels in critical positions. The
gears are made of a very tough and hard brass alloy with a tensile strength of
A high level of corrosion protection for all components is
assured. Brass components are pickled and receive a coat of clear lacquer. Steel
components are made from stainless steel or receive a galvanic nickel coating.
Each movement has a laser engraved serial number
