Offered is a large vintage battery operated mantel/desk clock produced in the 1960s by the German clock maker Kienzle.
These clocks are well known under the name "Kienzle Industrial Clocks", because of its simple yet high quality appearance and very accurate movements. When looking at the clock you will notice how much effort was put into the design of this timepiece; the height and diameter of the clock have exactly the same measurement.
This means that the angle, under which the clock is placed on the base, has been calculated to give the total height and width the exact same measurement of 7.9 inches. The clock is made of brushed steel with a brass back and has a very thick, glass window without scratches in front.
The hands and number marks are made in a beautiful shade of Blue / Grey. The movement functions by means of an echappement (balancing wheel), driven by a single AA battery.
In the late 1960's, when this clock was built, this was as High Tech as it could get.
The clock is in excellent condition and keeps accurate time and is marked Kienzle Electric, Made in Germany.
