There are many clock repairers out there who will not touch Cuckoo clocks. I on the other hand enjoy these wonderful clocks and enjoy repairing them. I have done thousands of them over the past 25 years and not to toot my own horn, am very good at them..
Cuckoo clocks are probably the most numerous type of clock ever made. I read once that there were more cuckoo clocks made than there are people on earth. That’s a pretty amazing statement, if true. What it means, is that there are a whole lot of them out there than need to be fixed.
Cuckoo clocks got their start in the 1720’s in the Black Forest area of Germany as a handmade wall clock that had a bird call. The first Cuckoo clocks had wooden Movements and did not even have a bird. It was an instant success with people all over the world. In fact there are Cuckoo clocks everywhere, on every continent.
