Engstler Black Forest Clocks from Villingen-Schwenningen is a family business with heart and passion that extends over decades. Lot of times and a love for detail goes into the design of each cuckoo clock. The figurines for the clocks come from the Gardena Valley in South Tyrol and the the cases are produced from domestic linden wood. The family relies completely on the experience of the clock-making region of the Black Forest and procures the movements for their clocks from there directly. Engstler was instrumental in the development of the first quartz movement for cuckoo clocks; for many years they were the only company to offer quartz clocks.
