The Hentschel Story    

Time and time again, Hentschel is noted for its dedication to excellence.  Each timepiece is crafted with the same pride that has gone into every Hentschel original since 1890.

From the start of our collection, The Shelby, to the stately Somerset, Hentschel begins with quality designs, then selects only the finest hardwoods and veneers to create quality heirloom clocks.

Engineered in Germany, the movement in each Hentschel grandfather clock is of exact precision.  The beat of the lyre pendulum rhythmically chime the classic cathedral melodies of Westminster, Whittington, or St. Michael.

Take comfort in knowing the art of handcrafted workmanship is alive and well at Hentschel.  Each clock is hand-assembled and hand-finished in seven separate painstaking steps.  No assembly line finishes here.  We create family heirlooms... one clock at a time.


A Hentschel grandfather clock, with its heritage, adds immensely to its legacy as a family heirloom.  Exquisite beauty and harmonious design render any Hentschel grandfather clock a joy to own and pass on from generation to generation.The Hentschel Guarantee
After a meticulous inspection by a qualified control technician, each Hentschel clock is tested and run for a minimum of 24 hours before leaving the factory.We are so confident in our clocks that we warranty the clock for a full 2 year period from date of purchase.
