Kreigsmarine ships clock by Kieninger & Obergfell

Code: 56440


A good example of a Kreigsmarine ships clock by Kieninger & Obergfell. Standard on all Kriegsmarine vessels, including U Boats, these clocks have a brass case, originally painted black but most usually, as is the case here, with the paint later removed for appearance purposes.

The clock runs well and keeps good time. It will arrive in good working condition but as with any vintage mechanical clock I am unable to offer a long term guarantee as all old clocks will need a service from time to time. It’s original key is included.

The silvered dial has been polished with loss to the silvering and both glass and seconds hand are replacements. All markings are of course guaranteed original and show the clock to have been issued to the North Sea Fleet with the number, N12647  

The case back carries the serial number 14068 , the last two digits 68  appearing on the hinge and lock of the glass opening window.

The clock is without damage other than those already described.

I am a vocal critic of those who sell fakes of these clocks at some of the fairs around the UK and on eBay, most of which originate from a Glaswegian fraudster living in Edinburgh. Naturally this example is guaranteed absolutely original. and will be accompanied by a certificate of authenticity if required.
