My grandfather was one of the best clockmakers, he was in the papers and everything when we were growing up. The one clock he loved the most, was his cuckoos, they had so many clocks all over the house and the sound of them helped me to sleep when I was up there growing up.
I actually still have one of them, well my brother in law in New Jersey does and its perfect. Still runs and if Pa was here today he would be so happy. Cuckoo Forest has some of the most amazing clocks, some are just so beautiful, they have other stuff too.

Quick Guide Through the Interesting Background of the Intricate Timepieces Cuckoo Clocks has a history almost as colorful as the clocks themselves. The tradition of the clocks goes back hundreds of years and is steeped in German charm, innovation, and craftsmanship.
Cuckoo Clocks originated, and are still produced, in the Black Forest Region of Germany. The mythical forest that spawned countless fairytales also gave rise to the famed clocks. The earliest known coo coo clock dates to 1619 but there is evidence to suggest the tradition may be older.
The iconic cuckoo call started appearing in clocks around this time and probably appeared in other mechanical products as well. But by the 1670’s that call was firmly associated with cuckoo clocks.
During the early rise of the clocks there were three famed makers:
- Franz Anton Ketterer
- Michael Dilger,
- Matthäus Hummel
It is widely believed these makers are responsible for the cuckoo’s clocks success during the early 1700’s. But the clocks that lined the walls of these maker’s shops were not the ones we picture today. They were varied and no signature “style” had yet emerged.
For a special Fathers Day gift, a clock will say a thousand words and last a lifetime
