Engstler® Clocks - Cuckoo clocks from the Black Forest
Engstler clocks from Villingen-Schwenningen is a family business with heart and passion. With great attention to detail, special cuckoo clocks are produced in the third generation, which are combined with the latest technical possibilities.
In 1952 Engstler Cuckoo Clocks was founded in Villingen by Josef Engstler and is now managed by Gerold Engstler in the third generation. The cuckoo clock manufactory hopes that this will continue in the future and that at some point the fourth generation of the family will continue the business. They are supported by 20 employees as well as additional decorators.
Several generations of cuckoo clock enthusiasts meet in the workshops of the Engstler company: The senior boss still helps out in the business every day and is happy to pass on his decades of experience. On the other hand, there are young people who like to lend a hand and learn the craft from scratch.
Engstler spends a lot of time and attention to detail on the cuckoo clocks, so that there is something for every taste in the assortment. In particular, Engstler clocks also devotes itself to the production of numerous large chalet cuckoo clocks with quartz movement: entire manors of up to 52 cm in height with various movable elements delight the heart of every cuckoo clock lover and give rise to Black Forest romance. The figures come from the Val Gardena in South Tyrol, which is world-famous for its carving art, and the cases are made of local lime wood.
For the movements for the special Engstler cuckoo clocks family relies on the one hand entirely on the experience of the clockmakers region Black Forest and sources them directly from the area. However, the Engstler Uhren company is also always committed when it comes to innovations and developments. For example, the first quartz movement for cuckoo clocks was co-developed by Engstler and for years they were the only supplier of quartz cuckoo clocks.
At Engstler Uhren, they are not afraid to take on special challenges in order to realize exciting projects. For example, they made a "MINI" clock where the car of the same name came out of the case instead of the cuckoo. Another project was a clock that croaked "Kärcher" instead of the typical cuckoo call during an advertising campaign.
Having a deep connection to their own region and family and still keeping an open mind for new ideas - that is the recipe for success of Engstler Uhren Villingen-Schwenningen, with which they have been holding their own on the market since 1952.
