Hones clocks are a leading brand of traditional Black Forest cuckoo clocks. Located in the Titisee-Neustadt, Hones cuckoo clocks are still handmade and mainly produced by small family-owned firms that work exclusively for Hones. Wood carvings and enclosures are used only from domestic production. Like their famous ancestors, quality is still the utmost important aspect and therefore are never mass produced. Nonetheless, they are still sold and treasured worldwide.
FAQs for this clock:
WHAT IS A QUARTZ CLOCK?
A quartz clock is battery operated and does not qualify as a Black Forest clock. However they do still look the same as Black Forest clocks as they come in traditional and chalet styles. They are a great opportunity for someone with a limited budget.
WHAT IS NIGHT SHUT OFF AND SHOULD I CONSIDER IT WHEN BUYING MY CUCKOO CLOCK?
Night shut off gives you the ability to silence the music and cuckoo element of your clock. Most clocks are able to be shut off manually and some come with automatic night shutoff. If your clock does not have night shut off, you may want to give special consideration to the location your cuckoo clock will be placed in.
HOW OFTEN WILL THE MUSIC PLAY?
This depends on the movement of your clock.
-Typically, an 8 Day clock will play music every hour
-1 Day clocks will play music on the half hour and the hour.
-If you have a quartz clock, it will generally play a song on the hour with about twelve different melodies.
WHAT ARE THE TUNES IN MY CUCKOO CLOCK?
It varies, however the most common are “Der fröhliche Wanderer” translated as “The Happy Wanderer” as well as Edelweiss.
Chalet clocks, particularly with beer drinkers, may feature songs such as In München steht ein Hofbräuhaus" and "Trink, Brüderlein Trink”.
I WANT A CLOCK THAT HAS DANCING FIGURES AND A TOWN SCENE. WHAT SHOULD I GET?
A chalet style of cuckoo clock is right for you. This what they are known for. If you don’t mind it not being authentic you can also get a quartz chalet clock.
