Kundo clocks refer to clocks made by the German company Kundo, the trade name of Kieninger & Obergfell, during the 20th century.

Kuno produced mantel and coach clocks, but are most famous for their flagship anniversary clocks.

Kundo was one of the leading anniversary clock manufacturers during the early and mid 20th century.

Kundo Anniversary clocks

Anniversary clocks are long-running torsion pendulum clocks, also known as 400-day clocks. They often feature glass bowls around the main body of the clock. They are known as anniversary clocks due to the idea that the owner chooses a meaningful date, such as the anniversary of the date you received it, as a reminder to wind it each year.

Kundo anniversary clocks were first produced in 1923 and are now highly collectible. They come in several styles but are based on two main types: fixed pendulum and removable pendulum.

They are extremely reliable and can run for between nine to 13 months between resets.

Guide to Collecting

Kundo anniversary clocks are reasonably abundant which has ensured that despite their popularity with clock enthusiasts, they are relatively cheap to purchase. Many examples are available for less than $100.

Some of their most popular designs were made during the 1950s, and those from this time will state ‘West Germany’.

Due to the manufacturer of this clocks during and after World War II, many of them were not exported and remained in Germany. Many collectors therefore buy these clocks in Germany.

Otherwise, Kundo clocks can be found at auction, on eBay, through specialist dealers and in antique stores.
