History of Hones Uhren

Hones was founded in 1950 by master clock maker Daniel Hones. Later only (in 1984) Wolfgang Trenkle took over his successful small business and grew the workshop to what it is today. Hones work shop is located near Titisee in the Black Forest in south western Germany. Thy proudly source domestically grown and manufactured materials for their wood carving and clock movement construction.

Hones is a certified member of the VDS (Verein Die Schwarzalduhr or Black Forest Clock Association). Hones Cuckoo Clocks have distinct features which make them recognisable. The first is the Company logo placed on the dial instead of the number 12. More famously however, is their exquisite and ornate master carvings which make them visibly distinct from other Cuckoo Clock companies from the Black Forest.

Justin Lang (owner and director of The German Village Shop) had the privilege of meeting with the owners of Hones and seeing their workshop and craftmanship firsthand. Their workshop is located in Titisee in the Black Forest. Justin was so impressed with the quality of their craftsmanship, integrity and passion that he simply had to have these clocks in our shop in Hahndorf South Australia.
