I have always been fascinated with cuckoo clocks since I was little. Their intricate designs and the sound they produce are magical. With all the latest and high-tech clocks and watches we have now, they have stood the test of time (figuratively and literally). My grandparents’ home had a cuckoo clock and I remember staring at it for a long time waiting for the cuckoo to come out.
When it comes to making clocks, Hermle Clocks is one of the oldest clock manufacturers in the world. The first Hermle Clocks factory was built in Germany in 1922. They are known for producing high standard clocks and still manufacturing their own movements and parts. In addition to design, they focus primarily on precision.
This Heidelberg cuckoo wall clock by Hermle is a typical Black Forest clock. The clocks of the Black Forest are defined by hand-crafted materials and cases depicting the local culture of the Black Forest region of Germany, also known as the Schwarzwald.
This chalet cuckoo clock from the Black Forest features a solid wooden case for extra stability and has two solid cast-iron ‘pine-cone-shaped’ weights.
It depicts a typical European chalet-style home with a wide wooden roof and overhanging eaves, small windows with little flowers overhanging, and has a dark walnut finish. The cuckoo bird animates from behind its door and presents itself every hour and chimes with its cuckoo sound on the hour.
It has four dancing figurines on the side, and it features a pile of wood in front of the house.
On the other side, there are two deer with trees in the background.
It is perfectly-sized with 18-¼ inches in height and 12-½ inches in weight and has 5-¾ inches in dimensions. Quartz clocks are known to have accurate movement so it ensures reliability, and requires less maintenance as compared to other clocks. This is battery operated and has volume control and auto night off.
This clock gives me a charming rustic feel. It perfectly blends with any wall color or decorations and fits naturally in every part of your home. The figurines dancing along with the music gives me a surprisingly nice feeling which brings a smile to my face. I’d say that this Heidelberg Cuckoo clock by Hermle can be a perfect gift for any occasion.
I love cuckoo clocks with intricate designs. I spent hours searching cuckoo clocks online and in vintage shops and I’m happy to find one on eBay. Before you decide to get yourself a cuckoo clock, I recommend one from the Black Forest. Black Forest clocks are known to produce high-value clocks. If you want to grace your home with beauty, practicality, and traditions, choose Hermle clocks.
