Before purchasing a cuckoo clock from an online store, read
all the information to ensure the clock is of genuine Black Forest Clocks quality and handcrafted by a certified Black Forest Clock producer. Not all online store suppliers list
Hekas Cuckoo clocks or Kammerer Hekas cuckoo clock as companies represented.
Although the first cuckoo clock dates back to 1629, genuine Black Forest Clocks have been individually crafted by Hekas Cuckoo clocks since 1938. After 70 years devoted to the production of handcrafted, rigorously inspected clocks, in 1998, the company name became Kammerer Hekas cuckoo clock under third-generation Krammer leadership.
Genuine Hekas Cuckoo clocks have a certificate indicating
the craftsman is a member of the Black Forest Clock Association. The company guarantees each clock case and face are individually crafted and decorated in-house. When completed, each clock is meticulously inspected for overall appearance. Hekas Cuckoo clocks are tested for 12 to 24 hours to ensure operation and precision of functionality before being shipped to distributors licensed in over 40 countries around the globe.
A true Kammer Hekas cuckoo clock displays shingles that have been individually crafted and placed atop a typical chalet-style house. In terms of sound, two factors distinguish a Kammerer Hekas cuckoo clock. A Kammerer Hekas cuckoo clock plays one of two German folk songs with the most recognizable one being “Edelweiss.” Unless there is a slight pause between the “cu” and the “ckoo”, the sound was produced via a tape recording as opposed to being generated by bellows.
