Measuring 207cm in height, this exquisite grandfather clock features an impressive round brass coloured dial with raised roman numerals that instantly draws the eye. Above the main dial is an inset moon dial which displays the phases of the Moon as it progresses through a complete lunar month of 29.5 days. Rounding out the body of this fascinating clock is a traditional case, made from solid wood that has been burnished into a mahogany colour. This elegant grandfather clock design features full visual bevelled glass panels both front and side that allows high visibility into the impressive inner features including the clock movement, dial, cable pulleys, polished weights with timber caps, and lyre pendulum, with Schloss Neuschwanstein etched onto the pendulum disc. Perhaps the most fascinating feature in the overall design includes the addition of 6 internal glass shelf panels with 3 that can go on display on each side, as well as etched patterned weights, a highly detailed dial, and an internal mirror and lighting (240v) to allow high visibility into the clock movements at all times.
This elegant grandfather clock is fitted with a high quality German Kieninger 8-day cable wound movement with triple chimes, with the three chimes including the famous Westminster Chime (also known as the "Big Ben" chime or the "Westminster Quarters"); the Whittington Chime; and the St. Michael's Chimes. The movement and the case are both 100% German made, ensuring an item of high quality and precision. This clock comes with optional automatic chime progression, where the chime will change automatically each hour should that be preferred to one melody.
This clock requires winding once a week. To wind the clock you simply insert a crank key into the holes present in the dial and wind the cable. In addition to these features, the clock also has manual chime on/off function and an automatic night-time shut-off, as well as the option to silence the clock altogether should that be preferred. The automatic night shut off function runs from 10pm till 7:15am.
Traditionally, grandfather clocks have not changed much over the centuries and to this day they still represent the amazing craftsmanship of both clock making and carpentry, keeping in style with a passage of time that is still well loved in today’s society. These timeless designs serve as generational keepsakes, having existed for over 400 years already, and are commonly also referred to as ‘Longcase Clocks’, ‘Floor Clocks’, or ‘Tall-Case Clocks’.
