Bleeding incredible precision with craftsmanship, these clocks take pride in the creativity and beauty they bring to the homes worldwide.

A brief insight into its beginning
The cuckoo clock industry started gaining popularity during the 18th century. The earlier versions of the clock only had 12 hour movements and the movements were designed mainly from the wood. Even the moving parts were made of wood. When the clock gained popularity in the Black Forest, clockmakers started replacing most of the wooden movement pieces with brass and metal. This act really improved their durability and ensured that the timepieces would last longer, which eventually led to their increased demand and sales worldwide.
These innovative clocks include weight-driven movements. The weights, which generally hang below the clock, are made to emerge as part of the design—they are often shaped like pine cones. On the hour, every hour, the clock door opens and a figurine pops out to make a “cuckoo” sound. This noise is created by wind rushing through bellows, each producing a different syllable. One “cuckoo” is designed for each hour that has passed (one call at 1 o’clock, two calls at 2 o’clock, etc.).
Factors to be considered before buying a cuckoo clock
Beyond the design and detail of a clock, there are numerous factors to consider before purchasing a clock. Buyers should first determine how often they need to wind the clock, and then consider if they want the clock to play music. The case style is also a key characteristic to consider when searching for one of these German clocks, along with price.
