This solid timber, triple chime Grandfather Clock is a high quality contemporary German floor clock from AMS - Andreas Mayer & Sons. The rich Walnut stained case features cleverly inlayed burl details top and bottom complimenting the floating round white dial with roman numerals and inset moon dial. The moon dial 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 German movement, ensuring that both the case and the movement are 100% German made. The three chimes available for selecetion are 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 so at a quarter past the hour you hear a quarter of the full chime, at half past half the chime and so on. On the hour you 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 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 and requires winding every week. To wind the clock you simply inserting a crank key into the holes in the dial and wind the cable until the weights return to the base of the dial. The chimes, played on long chime rods, is deep and warm creating a beautiful rich melody to be enjoyed comfort of your home.
