THIS AUCTION IS FOR THE VINTAGE REPRODUCTION OF THE FIRST BLACK FOREST CLOCK, THE ANNO 1640. THE CLOCK IS IN EXCELLENT WORKING CONDITION. THE ANNO 1640 WAS THE FIRST CLOCK MADE IN THE BLACK FOREST, GERMANY. IT WAS ALL WOOD WITH A ROCK FOR A WEIGHT. THIS IS NOT A CUCKOO CLOCK. THE ANNO 1640 WAS PRE-CUCKOO. THIS REPRODUCTION FROM THE 1960'S COMPREHENDS ALL THE INGENIOUS CONCEPTIONS OF THE ORIGINAL CLOCK. IT IS A GERMAN PRODUCT OF THE HIGHEST PRECISION AND OF A COMPLETELY ORIGINAL TYPE. NOT ONLY THE DIAL AND THE BASE-PLATE BUT ALSO THE COG WHEELS ARE ENTIRELY MADE OUT OF WOOD. ALSO NOTE IT ONLY HAS ONE HAND FOR TELLING TIME. THIS IS HOW THEY WERE ORIGINALLY MADE.
I PURCHASED THIS FROM AN ESTATE SALE. ACCORDING TO THE SON, HIS PARENTS BOUGHT THIS CLOCK AND ANOTHER, SOMETIME BACK IN THE 1960'S ON THEIR TRIP TO EUROPE. IT IS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION AND DOES WORK. IT IS APPROX. 6 FEET LONG (BUT APPEARS IT CAN BE ADJUSTED SO THE CORDS ARE NOT SO LONG) AND 7 INCHES WIDE. I PULLED THE CORD UP THROUGH THE HOLE SO I COULD GET EVERYTHING IN THE PICTURE. THIS IS A WONDERFUL VINTAGE WALL CLOCK THAT IS A REPRODUCTION OF THE FIRST EVER WORKING BLACK FOREST CLOCK. SEE PICTURES.
