In 1912 the Kieninger Clock Factory was founded 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 a 54.000 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.

Kieninger movements satisfy highest demands

and captivate with their high level of craftsmanship

and reliability. State of the art technology

combined with the finest materials and the

experience of almost 100 years in crafting clock

movements provide this guarantee.

Kieninger movements offer a multitude of partially

patented technical specialities:

All movements include one of our patented automatic

night shut-off features between 10.00 PM

and 7.15 AM (4/4 hour movements) or 10.00 PM

and 7.00 AM (1/2 hour movements).

Kieninger movements offer Graham anchor escapement

with the patented Kieniramic7 solid anchor

and our also patented automatic beat adjustment,

mantel clocks feature a Swiss escapement.

The correct second indication as used in almost all

our clocks is possible with another patented

Kieninger design.

Kieninger movements feature many stainless steel

components and all pinions are finished in a special

process developed by Kieninger.

Most cable movements are fitted with maintaining

power, providing continuous power while the movement

is wound.

All cable movements with 4/4-chime have separate

chime-off functions for melody and hour chime.

Cable movements of the H, K and M-series have

special winding stops, limiting the drop and win -

ding range of the weights.


1/4 cable movement with triple chime (Westminster, St. Michael and Whittington) on 9 tubes, diamond milled edges, 24 bronze bushings and 12 brass set genuine rubies (fly wheel, escapement and anchor

pivots), automatic beat adjustment, maintaining power, true second and automatic night time shut-off.

From its very 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 to no surprise, that today Kieninger is known for its craftsmanship and only the highest quality Products.

The Kieninger clocks are noted among the classics of the industry and some have been or are even shown in famous clock museums.

With our line of fine mechanical grand father, wall and mantel clocks we offer unique and individually designed clocks of the highest quality in our clock line for 2010/2011.
