Robert Herr | Custom Made Luxury Cuckoo Clocks

Immaculate attention to detail is easily apparent with this exquisite 8 Day Mechanical Carved Cuckoo Clock by German designer Robert Herr. This cuckoo clock represents a fine example of a genuine, high quality hand-crafted Black Forest cuckoo clock, produced from Schonach, in the heart of the Black Forest in Germany.

Measuring 101cm in height, this impressive 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 is a bold design, and features deep and detailed carvings - features which set Robert Herr cuckoo clocks apart. The clock has been treated with a mahogany coloured finish, and the weights are encased in beautiful hand turned wooden housings.

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 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. It features two melodies including 'High Badnerland' and 'Deep in the Hotzenwald'.

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.

Hand Crafted in the Black Forest, Germany

Robert Herr Cuckoo Clocks are a family run business that has withstood the test of time, originating over 150 years ago in 1868.  In fact, they represent the oldest existing manufacturer of cuckoo clocks in all of the Black Forest. The company is still based in the original workshop from the 1800’s, and their philosophy is simple - every single cuckoo clock is completely handmade by either Christophe Herr or his father, adopting the centuries old traditions and methods of German cuckoo clock craftsmanship. 

Robert Herr ensures that each clock creation is exceptionally built, deeply carved down to every intricate detail. From the design to the details, Robert Herr cuckoo clocks carry an elegance and beauty that is typical of authentic Black Forest clockmakers. Perhaps one distinct feature about Robert Herr cuckoo clocks is that each clock is uniquely hand carved, and no two clocks are the same.
