Movements (Mechanical) Kieninger
Many Kieninger movements have old calibres & markings on the plate which have been updated to newer modern calibres. For example, older movements usually have markings similar to “81 K 116cm”. Here the 81 denotes the year of manufacture (1981), K determines the family of movement & “116cm” is the pendulum length.
To replace this movement, you will need to match the chime sequence (Westminster or triple chime) & chime mechanism (gong, bells or tubes), the driving mechanism (spring or chain), the hand shaft & pendulum lengths as well as any other features to the information we provide with the modern calibres available from Kieninger below.
If there is no movement below which matches your current movements features, please submit an online support request via "products & stock - missing item specification". Please provide a photo of the numbers/letters stamped on the plate as well as the information that we have stated above
Kieninger recommend that replacing a Kieninger clock movement is often quicker and more cost effective than servicing or repairing an old one. Using a new movement ensures you take full advantage of the advances in manufacturing technology. They state that their movements are ready to fit, however some lubrication may be required.
The Kieninger pendulum length is stamped on the back of the movement, next to or underneath the calibre. The "cm" length is measured from the hand shaft centre to the centre of the pendulum disc (bob).
