Black Forest Clocks Wanted
We have a genuine interest in preserving anything related to Black Forest horology for future generations. After all, we are only the caretakers of these magnificent timepieces.
We enjoy sharing these items with the world through educational videos, photographs and detailed descriptions of our collection. We believe in making information available to anyone who is interested.
