Our German grandfather clocks are made with the highest-quality materials and craftsmanship. Grandfather clocks are tall, free-standing clocks with a pendulum clock movement that keeps the time. They are available in either 30 hour or 8 day running times, similar to our cuckoo clocks. These timeless floor clocks are manufactured by the Hemle Clock Company and AMS in the Black Forest. If you’ve been dreaming of having an authentic German grandfather clock of your own that you can pass down from generation to generation, take a look at our classic styles below.
The grandfather clock got its name in 1876 when an American songwriter named Henry Clay Work wrote a popular song called “My Grandfather’s Clock”. But the longcase clock was invented before this time, around 1680 to be exact. Each grandfather clock is made from the finest wood from solid maple or the alder tree. The mechanical movements and clock parts are handcrafted, and each clock plays the Westminster chime. Clocks come with an automatic night time shut-off so you can get a peaceful sleep, and you get a two-year warranty with your purchase.
