"And hear the pleasant cuckoo, loud and long; 

 The simple bird that thinks two notes a song." 

 (William Henry Davies)

"CLOCKS" magazine did a wonderful feature dedicating the entire issue to my collection,  front and back covers,  and a full center spread. Be sure to get a copy for your library.

We will often feature a unique collection of clocks or an individual that adds greatly to our hobby.  

This section showcases great collections from all over, and the great people behind them!

dedicated to automated clocks from the Black Forest Region of Germany!

Beautiful feature in "CLOCKS" Magazine.

From the early stage beginner and novice to the more advanced collector or curator, we hope that our site has something of interest for everyone! While we will focus primarily on clocks, we will on occasion also feature other interesting items made in the region by the same craftsmen.


We will make available to our site visitors our private collection, and we welcome others to partake in our journey!

We are glad to open our doors, and invite others to add to our archives and information.


Our goal at this site is to serve as a Horlogical public square – a gathering place for all for the discourse, discussion, sharing of ideas and opportunity to learn new information. Join in with your voice and comments so that we may each explore deeper the rich history of the Black Forest, and share what we know about these wonderfully intricate Black Forest clocks!
