Grandfather Clocks Howard Miller vs Ridgeway
Loading...Please Wait...Posted October 18, 2007
The last post in this blog, while comprehensive and accurate (we believe), deserves to be clarified for one relatively simple to explain grandfather clock difference - which is the difference between and Ridgeway Grandfather Clocks.
Howard Miller Clocks acquired the Ridgeway Brand, known for its premier Grandfather Clock selection, 3-5 years ago. The wood cases for most all of the mechanical clocks are now made by the combined Howard Miller Clocks team, and while the styles are different and the Ridgeway Clock brand has kept its name, both the mechanical clocks and the grandfather clock cases are, in our opinion, of virtually identical quality. Both use German made Kieninger movements almost completely for their mechanical clocks.
Are the mechanical better than those made and branded with the Howard Miller Clocks brand name? Our view is that the mechanical grandfather clocks lines are of almost completely comparable quality and worksmanship, for the reasons stated above. Both brands offer amazing collections for wonderful pieces to add to your timekeeping collections, and to Add Time to Your Life®.
