Here is what Hönes say about their company:

We combine the century-old craft of the Black Forest clockmaking with new ideas, thus being able to serve our customers wishes. Our extensive program is constantly enlarged by new models to maintain the tradition of the Black Forest clock. Our cuckoo clocks are manufactured not as mass-production, but as hand-assembled masterpieces. It is our company's philosophy to use for our clocks only high-quality movements, wood-carvings and clock cases, all produced in the Black Forest in Germany. The clocks are known around the world for Black Forest's high quality workmanship.
