At the beginning of the 19th century, the Herrs were already manufacturing Black Forest clocks. This tradition, based on skilled craftsmanship, know-how and up-to-date, environmentally-conscious production methods, guarantees the high quality of Hubert Herr cuckoo clocks. Starting from the raw wood and metal materials, up to the fully-assembled clocks, everything is made in two factories located in Triberg/Black Forest, Germany. Hubert Herr cuckoo clocks are currently exported to more than 60 countries in the world.
Hubert Herr is the only manufacturer making carvings and cases, and also producing mechanical one- and eight-day movements, musical clocks with double doors, clocks with dancing figures on a platform, as well as many moving animals, waterwheels and woodchoppers. Hubert Herr uses only genuine wood (linden and pine), the natural material for their clocks. All Hubert Herr cuckoo clocks are guaranteed hand-carved.
The Kammerer Clock Company was established in 1938 by Helmut Kammerer. Now in it’s fifth generation, the Kammerer company is still producing high-quality, handmade cuckoo clocks certified by the Black Forest Clock Association. Kammerer clocks show great attention to detail and quality control. Every clock is tested 24-48 hours before it get packed.
Kammer now produces 500 different models and has achieved an excellent reputation. These clocks are currently exported to 40 contries worldwide.
The Rombach and Haas Black Forest clock factory was founded in 1894. For their location, they chose an old farmhouse in the middle of the town of Schonach. Schonach later became a center for cuckoo clock production in the Black Forest and has remained so to the present.
In the early years, manufacturing cuckoo clocks did not generate enough income to make a living, so the clock makers had to rely on the sale of groceries to make ends meet. The clock making business slowly grew into a viable business as they produced more and more of these special clocks. Since the beginning of the 20th century, the company has produced only wall clocks.
Over the years, Rombach and Haas has earned an excellent reputation for the high quality of their Black Forest clocks. The clocks are unique and extraordinary in design and quality. For this, they receive recognition every year.
