The Kensington Modern Floor Clock

(Model: 2018/33)

The Kensington is Frank´s latest creation and it is a modern version of a Grandfather Clock.

The Kensington is 80 inches tall and is constructed in your choice of solid - Walnut, Cherry or Oak. The cabinet features a full length curved glass door and has glass both sides. All glazing is Pilkington safety glass.

There are several dial options including a square clear acrylic face etched with modern numerals and a brass or hardwood rim. The second option will be a round clear acrylic dial featuring etched modern numerals within a hardwood rim. The rims on both dials enclose low voltage LED´s to illuminate the numerals when switched on by the touch sensitive switch. If you prefer a white face on the dial this is also an option with the Square and Round dials.

The Kensington can be ordered with either the Kieninger® HSU gong movement or the Kieninger®HTU Jewelled Tubular Bell movement; these are the highest specification movements in the Kieninger range. The HTU 8-day movement strikes the hours and chimes three melodies - Westminster, St. Michael and Whittington on nine full length polished tubular bells. The HSU is identical in specifications but chimes the melodies on a 12-rod gong. Both movements have levers to select the chime and the automatic ‘night silencing’ mechanism to silence the chimes between 22-00 & 07-15. The movements are fitted with nine Ball Bearings, 12 Rubies and 26 bronze bushes to provide very low friction and durability.

To achieve exceptional time-keeping accuracy the movement is governed by a very long temperature compensated pendulum. This new Oakside pendulum is constructed with a carbon fibre shaft and 220 mm diameter acrylic bob supported at is centre with a fine adjustment wheel. We are achieving an accuracy of within several seconds of deviation per month.

Using our newly developed electronic instrument and PC program we can monitor the swing of the pendulum and make fine adjustments to the pendulum bob, to attain an extremely accurate beat, thus providing very precise time-keeping without requiring further adjustment in service.

Height: 80 inches, Width: 17 inches, Depth: 12 inches
