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!

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

 The simple bird that thinks two notes a song."

2015 Eisenbach clock fair!  

Held in the magnificent and historical town of Eisenbach in the heart of the Black forest,  home town of one of the greatest makers of all time.  Johann Baptist Beha.   Be sure to reserve your room at the WONDERFUL hotel Bad,  owned by Hubert Wursthorn.  The Bad was once owned by Johann Baptist  and is still in the family.  The history in this place is amazing, and add in the clock fair and carnival atmosphere at the hotel, a MUST see for any collector.  April 18th and 19th  2015.

The wife and I attend every year and on a personal invite from Hubert, The owner and host,  a splendid time and of coarse..  When in Germany.....
