Walnut Grandfather Clock With Triple Chime and Full Glass Door By AMS
A traditional aesthetic comes easily to this Contemporary Grandfather Clock By AMS, which represents a fine example of a genuine, high quality hand-crafted Black Forest grandfather clock built by skilled craftsmen.
This solid timber, triple chime Grandfather Clock is a high quality contemporary German floor clock from AMS - Andreas Mayer & Sons that measures 196cm in height, 55cm in width and 30cm in depth. The rich solid timber walnut case features cleverly inlaid burl details top and bottom that compliments its impressive gold round dial with roman numerals and inset moon dial which displays the phases of the moon as it progresses through the lunar month (29.5 days).
The high quality Kieninger 8-day cable wound movement with triple chimes fitted in this clock is a quality German movement, ensuring that both the case and the movement are 100% German made. The three chimes available include the Westminster chime (also known as the "Big Ben" chime or the "Westminster Quarters"), the Whittington Chime, and the St. Michael's chimes. The number of chime sets matches the number of quarter hours that have passed, therefore at a quarter past the hour you would hear a quarter of the full chime, whilst at half past you would hear half the chime, and so on. On the hour you will hear the full chime followed by a strike for the number of hours. So at 2 o'clock for example, you will hear the full chime followed by 2 strikes.
The solid timber framed door with full visual glass provides an unobstructed view of the impressive dial, cable pulleys, polished brass weights and pendulum. You will also be able to see just beyond the dial that this is a mechanical clock with visible chime rods which require winding every week. To wind the clock you simply insert a crank key into the holes in the dial and wind the cable until the weights return to the base of the dial. In addition to these features, the clock also has manual and automatic night-time shut-off which is enabled by lifting and pulling a lever.
This beautifully designed clock by AMS represents a charming timepiece, suitable for those looking for a quality traditional grandfather clock that has been handcrafted using carving methods that have been practised for hundreds of years.
