Emperor Grandfather clock

The making of an Emperor Grandfather Clock

There are a number of places where you can buy a clock or a clock kit, but few of them will be able to offer you the unique selection presented by Emperor grandfather clocks.

Emperor Clock is the largest supplier of hardwood oak and cherry clock kits, letting you pick the exact grandfather clock that you want while making sure that you don’t have to pay too much to buy it.

Emperor features both clock kits and finished grandfather clocks, as well as a number of accessories to help you complete the exact look that you want for your new clock.

Many people think that buying a clock kit means that you’ll be settling for a lesser product, but Emperor tall clocks feature a level of quality that is unsurpassed.

These clocks are made from the finest oak and cherry hardwood materials, making sure that they will not only look amazing but that they will be able to withstand the test of time and will still be in prime condition so that you can one day pass them on to your children.

For those who are still uncomfortable with the thought of buying a grandfather clock kit, Emperor clocks are also available as finished products that meet the same standards of quality as any other grandfather clock that you might purchase.

A number of accessories for your Emperor floor clock can be purchased as well, letting you customize your clock so as to give it the exact look and timing that you want it to have.

Unique winding keys and cranks can add a bit of elegance to your clock, while your choice of suspension springs will help to ensure that your clock works just as it should.

You can even choose to buy a custom nameplate to go in your Emperor grandfather clock so that it will be obvious that the clock is a custom creation just for you.

In addition to having a number of beautiful clock cases for you to choose from, you can also pick the right clockwork movement for your clock to make sure that it will be able to keep time with precision.

A number of different movement options are available, so you can choose the one that will provide the level of precision and time between windings that you want.

Different clock movements will feature different numbers of weight chains and will last for different amounts of time before having to be wound, so you will be able to customize the look of your Emperor grandfather clock even more by choosing exactly how many weights will be present in the final clock.
