Case: 15cm ( 5 29/32" )x 15cm ( 5 29/32" ) canister style timepiece enclosed within a wood backed, trademarked, Italian (Bovisa) titanium rectilinear case with a wire stand to hold it upright. This was essentially a German attempt to copy the English Sterling silver travel clocks of about the same era.

Dial: Off-white dial with Arabic hour chapter, open minute ring, steel spade hands and the dial marked with a logo of Kienzle
(a dial with wings) and marked Made in Germany at the base

Movement: Canister movement with single spring for time, wound by a key at the back, knob to set the hours and a lever to alter the speed. The movement is a fenestrated round brass example with spoke plates, monometallic balance and single steel spring.

Weight : 341g.

Condition : a very nice artifact. Some small dents and oxidation to the back of the case and some very small dents and surface scratches to the titanium cover. Dial good. We wound it up without effort but it is not actually working! It has some minor problem and would, we think, be an attractive purchase for a clock enthusiast or clock repairer!
