Robert Herr | Custom Made Luxury Cuckoo Clocks

Attention to detail is easily apparent with this exquisite 8 Day Gothic style Railroad House Mechanical Carved Cuckoo Clock by German master carver Robert Herr from the Black Forest in Germany.

Measuring 47cm in height*, this impressive hand-carved clock features the design of a railroad house, or, Bahnhäusleuhr in German, which resembles an important milestone in the history of Black Forest Clock Making. The design came to be in the mid 18th century, by Friedrich Eisenlohr, an architect for a railroad company, who was inspired by the houses of railroad gatekeepers. This vintage reproduction offers a bold design, and features deep and detailed carvings with an ornate gothic inspired aesthetic - features which set Robert Herr cuckoo clocks apart.

Additional details to complete the overall design feature include the clock dial, numerals and hands which are also made from wood, whilst the chains and other visible metal parts are darkly burnished. The clock has been treated with a black antique wax, and the weights are encased in beautiful hand turned wooden housings.

The in-built wooden cuckoo of this clock has a very beautiful cuckoo call which calls the time each hour and once every half hour, moving its wings when called. This clock model has a manual night shut-down mode that is enabled by lifting and pulling a lever, and it needs to be wound once a week. There is no music with this clock.

What sets this clock apart is that the entire piece has been carved and hand signed by one person, who has seen the project through from start to completion. The combination of the design, creativity and attention to detail that Robert Herr cuckoo clocks encompasses truly represents what the essence of Black Forest high class workmanship is all about. The finished products are truly spectacular, and the journey of this clock from the design and the planning stages, to receiving the finished product is wonderful to watch.

Benefits of a Mechanical Cuckoo Clock

Black Forest mechanical cuckoo clocks are weight driven and are available in two different movements:

  • 1 Day Movement - you wind the clock by pulling the chain and winding the weights once a day
  • 8 Day Movement - you wind the clock by pulling the chain and winding the weights once a week

Each mechanical cuckoo clock will have either two or three weights; two weights for cuckoo only and three weights for cuckoo and music. One weight runs the clock movement and hands that show the time and the second weight drives the cuckoo calling mechanism. The cuckoo sound is produced using bellows that push air through two whistles creating the 'cook' and 'coo' sounds respectively. If you choose to also have music with your mechanical cuckoo clock, the third weight drives a traditional mechanical music box movement with a pinned cylinder that plucks notes on a 'comb' to produce a melody.
