Product Description

Beautiful vintage Kieninger & Obergfell standard (large) movement anniversary clock, imported to the US by Welby. It stands 11-½” tall including the dome. It features a striking gold tone dial with white Roman numerals within cobalt blue inserts, the word ' WELBY' written in black under the XII, black spade hands, decorative rope style columns, a pendulum locking device which operates by lifting the pendulum into a cutout at the back of the movement platform, and then swinging the locking lever to the right, suspension spring guard, all brass leveling feet rounded at the bottom so as not to scratch fine furniture, and a shiny glass dome. It is in excellent, all original condition, with some dulling of the highly polished finish between the plates, but otherwise looks as good as the day it came from the factory. Horolovar plate #1380, pendulum #102. The clock is approximately 40 years old.

This clock has history in Harper Woods, Michigan, where it was twice serviced by Time Center Watch Clock Jewelry Service. I’ve removed the peeling label from under the base, but there are two service marks etched into the back plate ‘12/83 A-1’ and ‘5/91 A-1’.

The movement has been professionally disassembled, cleaned, lubed, and reassembled, and then thoroughly tested from a partial to full wind. The clock has a new suspension spring and mainspring, and is in excellent running condition. Watch it run in the Product Videos tab.

Kieninger & Obergfell (pronounced Keen-ing-ger oond O-berg-fel, or Koon-doe for short) was a very popular and successful German clockmaker. They began manufacturing anniversary clocks in the early 1930’s. In 1932, Kundo developed the first pendulum guide cup to help prevent the pendulum from shattering the glass dome if the clock was tipped at an angle. They were the first to produce miniature clocks in 1952, with midget clocks appearing in 1960. Kundo perfected their unique pendulum locking device in 1954. They continued making wind up anniversary clocks into the mid to late 1970’s.
