The clocks of the Black Forest * bear the name of the forested region of the Black Forest
(Schwarzwald in Germany) made in the early eighteenth century by the peasants of this region who carved the wood in winter to care.
The famous “cuckoos” on which appears at the time of the ring a bird or a small character are also coming from this region of Neustadt
