The Hampshire Grandfather Clock

(Model: 2018/3)

The Hampshire is a 20th century original design by Oakside Classic Clocks.

The Cabinet – The Hampshire is built in Solid Oak

The Dials - There are four solid brass moon phase dials to choose from.

Dial Option one is polished brass with a silver chapter ring and Roman raised brass numerals - it has an etched centre disk with a subsidiary second’s and cast brass corners spandrels.

Dial Option two is polished brass with a silver chapter ring and Arabic raised brass numerals - it has an etched centre disk with a subsidiary seconds dial and cast brass corners spandrels.

Dial option three is our Oakside reproduction 1750 style that is in solid brass and fitted with a Silver plated chapter Ring & Centre Disk, painted Roman & Arabic numerals. Solid brass corner spandrells.

Dial Option four is our traditional white dial.

All dials have two selection levers, these controls the Hour Chimes and the three melodies Westminster, Whittington & St. Michael. The lever on the left controls the chimes and provides Silent, Automatic Night Off (22-15 and 07.15) and Continuous Chiming. The lever on the right selects allows you to select Silent, any of the three melodies or Automatic Sequencing!

The Movement Options – The Hampshire Grandfather Clock is fitted as standard with the superb Kieninger KSU 50 8-day, Automatic melody sequencing, weight driven movement.

Alternately we can fit either the Kieninger KSU55 8-day movement. This movement plays three melodies Westminster, Whittington and St Michael on a nest of nine polished brass bells.

Or the Superb very high specification Kieninger® HSU 8-day jewelled movement installed - which has 12 Rubies and 32 bronze bushes carrying the moving parts. This movement strikes the hours and chimes - Westminster, St. Michael and Whittington on a twelve-rod gong, on the quarter hours - it has automatic night silencing mechanism to silence the chimes between 22-00 & 07-15.

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.

The power to the clock movement is provided by the gravitational effect acting on the weights – this effort is regulated by the combined actions of the Graham dead-beat escapement (invented by George Graham FRS 1674 – 1751) and the swing of the Pendulum – together providing excellent time-keeping! To assist in maintaining accurate time, all superior clock movements have a maintaining power mechanism – this drives the pendulum while the weights are being re-wound, a device is also fitted to automatically provide an equal sounding tick and a Maltese Cross mechanism to prevent accidental over-winding.

The Pendulums – The Hampshire is fitted with a small Lyre Pendulum with a 165mm diameter polished Bob – you may also specify a small Lyre Pendulum with a 225mm Bob.

The most popular option however is the technically superior Temperature Compensating Pendulum (invented by John Harrison of Longitude fame 1693 – 1776).

Weight Shells. There are three polished brass weight shells; it is the gravitational pull on the weighs that provides the power to drive the pendulum, Chimes and the Melodies.

Height: 80 inches, Width: 22 inches, Depth: 14 inches
