German Army Keinzle Clock

German Army Keinzle Clock

Code: 55270


A very attractive working example of a 1934 dated German Army Kienzle Clock. Often incorrectly described as a radio room clock they were in fact a general purpose clock, the identical Luftwaffe version actually being carried in muti engine aircraft where it fitted into a special cradle above the navigator’s table.

Complete with the rare polished wood case (far rarer than the clock itself) which is in excellent condition with its fold out stainless still legs still in place.

The clock and housing are in keeping with the early clocks which saw extensive use of stainless steel. Housing carries the stamp of an army unit in Nurnberg and is marked, Heereseigentum (in the service of the army), Keinzle, N:1695 and 1934. The black dial is in very good condition and calibrated in both 12 and 24 hour markings, the hands now darkened with age. At the 6 o’clock position is a subsidiary second dial and hand.

The clock runs well and keeps very good time but is of course not guaranteed.
