The Greenwich Master Regulator

(Model: 2017/10)

The Greenwich Regulator is an original design by Oakside Classic Clocks.

Frank builds the Greenwich clock cabinet in your choice of either solid Walnut, Cherry or Oak, each with decorative stringing inlays.

The cabinet is hand-sanded to a fine finish before we apply five coats of hard lacquer – this is burnished to a very pleasing satin sheen that will not require any further attention other than an occasional polish! In time the timber will gradually acquire a patina that can only develop with age.

The clock cabinet is fully glazed, with bevelled glass to the sides, top & bottom.

There are two movement options for the Greenwich Regulator – Option one is the Kieninger PS063, 8-day mechanical movement which strikes the hours and the half hour on a coiled gong; the movement has an auxiliary maintaining power mechanism to provide drive to the pendulum during the rewinding process, hence improving time-keeping. Two brass weights provide the energy to drive the pendulum and to operate the striking mechanism. Option two is the Kieninger RWS13 8-day, mechanical movement that plays the Westminster chime on the quarter hours and strikes the hours on an 8-rod gong. A pair of brass weights provide the motive power for the pendulum - separate spring barrels drive the melody and chimes.

There are two dial options – the Vienna style dial has conventional, centrally mounted, hour and minute hands and a subsidiary dial showing seconds. The Regulator dial has a central minute hand and two subsidiary dials, showing hours and seconds. Both dials are available with a chrome rim.

We fit the Greenwich with a Kieninger Ebonised timber Pendulum as standard but alternately you may specify the Kieninger Temperature Compensating pendulum or the Metral grid pendulum - all pendulums have a 140mm polished brass bob.

Please note:- The PS063 and the RWS13 movements have selectable automatic night silencing.

Manufacturing quality shows in every Kieninger movement. All movement plates are made of a special brass alloy that is hard and has a high tensile strength. The holes for the journals are reamed and smoothed after lacquering and then receive an oil sink. Pinions are made of high-quality steel or stainless steel. Fast turning pinions are hardened. All journals are roller burnished in a special process. The HTU and HSU movements feature thirty-two bronze-bushings and twelve jewels in critical positions. The gears are made of very tough and hard brass alloy with a tensile strength of 62 kp/mm². A high level of corrosion protection for all components is assured. Brass components are pickled and receive a coat of clear lacquer. Steel components are made from stainless steel or receive a galvanic nickel coating. Each movement also has a laser engraved serial number.

We fully expect that every Oakside Longcase clock will become a family heirloom, passing through many generations - we therefore take great care to ensure, that every part of the clock is built to the highest possible standards, using the finest mechanical clock movements, workmanship and materials!
