The Winchester Grandfather Clock

(Model: 2017/5)

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

The Movement – The Winchester Grandfather Clock is fitted with the superb Kieninger HTU 8-day jewelled mechanical movement; there is a photo of the HTU on the Prices and Options page. This amazing movement plays its melodies and hour chimes on the nine full–length tubular bells that can be seen through the pendulum door! The movement has a Graham dead-beat escapement (invented by George Graham FRS 1674 – 1751) that impulses the Pendulum and as with all superior clock movements, the time drive is fitted with a maintaining power mechanism to drive the pendulum while the weights are being re-wound, a device is fitted to automatically provide an equal sounding tick and a Maltese Cross mechanism to prevent accidental over-winding.

The Cabinet – The Winchester is built in Solid Oak, Walnut, Cherry and you may specify a natural, medium or dark finish on the Oak – The cabinet is hand-sanded to a fine finish, we then apply five coats of Hard Lacquer and this is allowed to harden before we polish the clock to a beautiful satin sheen. It has toughened glass to the pendulum door and bevelled glass to the side panels. Traditional, Longcase clocks had solid timber panels in the pendulum door and in the side panels - if you prefer a traditional appearance we can build the Winchester with any combination of glass and solid panels, although we do recommend glass in the top side panels so that you can view the movement in action and it is also very satisfying to be able to watch the pendulum swinging, behind the glazed pendulum door!

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

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

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

Option three is a traditional 1850s style painted white dial with black painted Roman & Arabic numerals, a subsidiary dial showing seconds and it is hand decorated details by our Artist.

Option four is a very high quality reproduction of an original 1750s dial, it has a Silver plated chapter ring with painted Roman & Arabic Numerals, a silver-plated and decorated centre disk with a subsidiary second’s dial and cast brass silver plated corner Spandrels.

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 the options of Silent, Automatic Night Off (22-15 and 07.15) or continuous Chiming. The lever on the right allows you to select the Melody or Silent.

The Pendulums – The Winchester is fitted with a Lyre Pendulum with a 225mm diameter polished Bob - alternately you may specify a Temperature Compensating Pendulum (invented by John Harrison of Longitude fame 1693 – 1776).

Weight Shells. There are three polished brass weight shells.

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.
