GOOD EYE! The Kienzle is By far the most rare and valueable of my antique clocks. [the Jennison being new]. It was worth having it rebuilt last year by one of the few master clock builders left in the country!
How many of them chime?
All except the School clock sound the hour , the Jennison plays a choice of three different chimes. The Kienzle and the Seth Thomas play Westminster chimes. So the answer is three.
I rebuilt the Ingraham,and repaired the Seth Thomas and the AK.
The rest I have only maintained.
We have had the Aichi Prefecture [third photo, first post]for more than 30 years it has now run for almost 110. It was the first, and so has a special place in my heart.
The Korean clocks and the Chinese clock are of little value and may face replacement when something better is found. the rest are a permanent part of my collection.
We got the Aichi Prefecture from my wife's cousin (once removed) who, having lost his right arm, still ran a clock repair service and built clocks even to the point of making his own gears. Handicapped is sometimes just a state-of-mind
