ASSO and KIENINGER
The Kieninger was founded in 1912 in the Black Forest by Joseph Kieninger and therefore is the oldest existing manufacturer of mechanical clock movements for grandfather-, wall- and mantel clocks in the world.
Since 1917 the Company has been located in Aldingen, a charming village just between Black Forest and ‚Schwäbische Alb‘. Today, the Company occupies 45,000 square foot manufacturing facility, newly constructed in 1991 and employs about 100 dedicated and highly skilled workers and staff.
In 1993, Kieninger became part of the Howard Miller Group (USA), the largest manufacturer of grandfather clocks in the world.
From its very first beginning Kieninger has stayed with its traditional concept: The manufacture of technically advanced, high quality mechanical movements and clocks. This has proved successful and it is no surprise, that today Kieninger is known around the world for its craftmanship and only the highest quality products.
The Kieninger clocks are counted among the classics of the industry and some have been or are even shown in famous clock museums.
Kieninger clocks and movements offer a multitude of
partially patented technical innovations and clockmaking specialities:
• Graham ancor escapement or swiss escapement
• Pinions finished in a special roller burnishing process (Kieninger development)
• Automatic beat adjustment (Kieninger patent)
• Automatic night shut-off features (Kieninger patent) for strike and chimes
• correct second indication for short pendulums (Kieninger patent)
• Maintaining power, providing continuous power while the movement is wound
• Special winding stops, limiting the drop and winding range of the weights
• Automatic chime sequenzing (Kieninger patent) for triple chime movements
• Melodies „Westminster“ – „Vogelfänger / birdhunter“ – „Freude schöner Götterfunke / Ode to Joy“ (Kieninger development)
