over the world
The Black Forest and its Cuckoo Clocks are world famous. In the year 1737, the
first Cuckoo Clock was developped by Franz Ketterer, a clockmaker in our city
Schoenwald in the Black Forest. With the style and design, plus the
affectionately and detailed wood-carvings; the system of the call of the cuckoo
and also the mechanical clock movement are maintained to this day. The unique
styles have made the Cuckoo Clock a timeless design.
Installation of the movement and cuckoo call technical details
Our Cuckoo Clocks are only made with the robust rackstrike movement. This
movement allows turning the hands left and right without endangering the
mechanics of the movement.
Detailed decoration of the clocks
All our clocks are meticulously inspected for the running and accuracy, In this
way, we have the best guarantee for impeccable and reliable function. The
wood-carvings we use are made in the Black Forest - without exeption. We prefer
to use clock parts coming from the area around Schoenwald.
