A small wall clock using Kieninger’s superb spring driven J movement. Its a 65th birthday present for a friend.
The clock is made from solid Walnut with book matched Walnut burl veneers on the back board and door, enhanced with Tasmanian oak stringing. The three ‘lights’ of the case are all bevelled glass. It has two traditional ‘steadies’ which pin it to the wall. The typical ‘beat plaque’ below the pendulum is used to align the clock to the vertical. It could also hide a hole for a second screw to fix the clock to the wall.
The movement is a triple chime on an eight rod gong, with options for Westminster, St Michael, Whittington, or silent. It chimes every quarter hour, but has automatic night shut-off, with its last strike at 10.00 pm, and its first strike of the day at 7.15 am.
