Clock Movements + Brass Ornaments
As I had always done, I check the movements, clean and re-oil them prior to testing them for a few days, so I can give the full 12-month guarantee. After-sales service I do in my workshop. The recommended clock movement / dial combinations are flexible to a degree, as I have other dials, pendulums and weight shells. Please contact me for any queries you might have. Please note: When planning to build a clock case, please enquire about the minimum measurements needed for the casing, otherwise you might not be able to buy the movement you want.
I have stock of 1/2 doz. Kieninger PK strike movements, but only 2 sets of gong-rods ( not chime ), for the rest I will use bells and gong-tubes, either single or double strike.
These PK movements have two weights on chains, 116 cm pendulum, ( one with a 93 cm ) wooden rods. Starting from R 4400.–
One PS – 116 cm movement ( Weights on pulleys and cables ) with enamel dail 240 mm diameter should be available later in the year. I will have brass holders made locally for that PS movement and the others with round dials.
New – the Hermle ref. 0130 mantel clock movement with bell strike:
I prepared one prototype with dial and holder complete to make the fitting into a case simple.
The 8-day spring-wound movement strikes the half and full hours onto two bells. The time-keeper is a balance, not a pendulum, as in large clocks.
I found the simple “Country Clock” case an ideal example for the bell-strike movement. The dial measures 150 mm. The hands I made from brass, in order to give them a special finish – black with edges in brass. I find generally, that small features give that special touch. Similar to you doing the woodwork with carefully thought-out details.
I will complete this as soon as I can.
New illustrations in preparation, including one moon – phase dial 395 x 280mm and one matching set of “Tempus Fugit”dial, 330 x 250 mm, weights, chains and pendulum for the 93 cm (Grandmother) clock movement.
not yet fully illustrated:
One Kieninger spring wound, 9 – bell chime/strike movement, either for a mantel clock with 15 cm pendulum or modified – if possible – with 80 cm pendulum for a wall clock. Moon dial 200 mm.
More than ten Hermle mantel clock movements, double strike on 2 bells, choice of 2 dials.

The ornaments are of solid brass, naturally of high quality. As with all of my offers, you get excellent value. Just check some USA websites. Of course I only can sell at my prices, because I don’t import any more. As with most goods today, you can purchase some cheap imitations, but — value for money is questionable.
