Altobel Antonio SZR.17 Grandfather

Sorry. Photograph currently unavailable.


Amazing grandfather clock as did in 1700´s for the lord people in Venice Republic. We had prepared the fish glue and plated many small pieces of solid Italian Olive wood by using thousands of small nails to fix each piece of Olive over the Maple case and using table solid Fir wood back side. Then after glue has been dryed we had to take them all off. Shellac finishing hand made by Mrs. Ambrosi, so by touching the surface you can easy feel the vens of the wood and also see them incredibly outstanding. The pieces of wood will surely move and you will see some small gaps in the betrween all around the clock case: those are not clock defects but that´s the case woodworking processing. We add a bottle of finishing oil for continuing lubrificating the surface and by exporting that clock we add a protective transparent film made by our Mr. Giorgio too. Anycase it will never be secure from wood movement enough lifetime. We used old wood maybe 100 years old and we did the shellac filling 10 or 14 times depending on the wood selection made about 45 years ago, but that woodworking craftmanship was so high class that was not planned for durability but it was planning for displaying the wood vens as much as possibile and more and even more. Clock has the 2 side small doors for inspecting the chimes and the moonphase dial. At the time clock was without the moonphase and it had a paper dial. Interior has been finished with green velvet by our cofounder Mrs. Daniela and clock has the bevelled glass manually all around by Mr. Giovanni. The cord around the glasses is the old fashioned green color decorated flat and thin in order to cover the high thick of the doors in the between of the genuine platings of solid Olive wood outside and inside too. New locks in order to give secure closing and the full top part of the clock can be removed out to the top. At that time the top part was moved to the clock maker to be repaired and or later delivered in respect of the base/body of the clock, so we mantained the 2 clock parts too. Extraordinary grandfather clock case hand made totally by a kind of labour and craftmanship not more repetible.


Original German mechanical movement from the company Kieninger, they do clock movements in the Black Forest since 1912 made of solid high thick brass. It may play quarterly one of 3 different chimes on 8 notes: Westminster chime, Whittington chime and St. Michael chime. Then the strokes hourly. Accessories also include: moonphase dial/face and the genuine brass lire pendulum and weights all them German made by the Jaeckle company since 1888. Clock movement features: self oiling, self centring, self regulating and you may rotate minute hand counterclockwise trouble free. Moreover clock may not chime night time from 10pm untill 7.15am automatically. Clock winding weekly (about 10 days totally) by pulling down the free part of each chain and so making the weight moving up. It goes down 12cm per day making the clock running and chiming.


We grant 2 years totally worldwide. It has the operating and starting booklet in 16 different languages included. We also will include usb pen drive showing start up videos in English language too. Clock wood has been selected in 10 years so it´s dry and safe itself. About the movement package it includes the dial hands once. So simply open the top door, it comes off to the front simply by unscrewing the 2 gray screws and if you send or bring back the old one we give you a new clock movement package for free during the first 2 years and later at sole its cost. Anycase you do not need to repair or to ask people to come to your house. Simply self made replacement and per post sending back the old one to us. Moreover the full top part of the clock comes off to the top and stay by itself if needed.
