Cuckoo Clock

Hi there,
Does anyone know where is the best place to get a swiss Cuckoo clock made in Switzerland And not in China. I am looking for one and I don't mind buying a good used one.

Re: Cuckoo Clock

Real cuckoo clocks are made in the Black Forest in Germany, NOT Switzerland!

Try Dold in St. Georgen, for example.

Actually, there are several dozen cuckoo-clock factories in that area!

Re: Cuckoo Clock

If you're still looking for Swiss made:

http://www.loetscher.ch/shop/

I haven't been to Brienz for several years, but in one retail outlet (can't remember if it was for Lötscher or not, though), I was impressed with the intricate wood carving (for which Brienz is famous), but was disappointed to see a plastic cuckoo. Worth checking, before buying.
