Kieninger & Obergfell Kundo anniversary
clock, circa 1953
Clock is about 12 inches tall to the top of the dome. The face is a little over 3½ inches in diameter. The brass movement cleaned up nicely and is now clean and bright. This is a 400-day "anniversary" clock. The back plate matches Plate 1004 in Horolover 400 Day Clock Repair Guide, 10th Edition, by Charles Terwilliger. The plate is labeled "Kieninger & Obergfell, AMC, Made in West Germany". The information given for this plate indicates a manufacture date of 1953. In general appearance and design this clock is very similar to the 1976 Kundo shown in the "just passing through" section below except this clock has a glass dome, brass suspension spring cover and an all metal base. The base has three adjustable leveling feet that work properly. Everything looks original to me, but the original key is missing.
This clock was a gift from a friend. It had not run for many years and was very much in need of service. After cleaning and oiling, and a few adjustments, the clock is now running and looking fine
