We recently picked up this cuckoo clock at a second hand store & are trying to figure how to track it down. The hands are plastic, as is the cuckoo bird & dial. Above the #6 says "W. Germany". On the inside of the backing there is stamped in black 3-94 on the lower left & on the top right is a hand written black 3. The inside peak is stamped in brown Bachmaier & Klemmer, 240 Berchi??gaden(?) Germany, hand written 3 top right. On the actual clock works is (?)--gula, no jewel, unadjusted.
Need a research site just for looking up cuckoo clocks inputting information that you have & approximate worth & closest repair shop to your area would be very helpful.

    My parents Had one of these when I was Younger! My Mothers Neice Brought it back From Germany As A gift To My Parents When her and her Husband Was Stationed In Germany. I think It Must Of been Around The Late 70's Or early 80's. I remember that crazy bird going off. My Mother was blind in One eye And Could hear A Pin Drop On carpet. Her Hearing was so sensitive. We Use To Lock The bird Up At Nite When We Went To bed. Very Nice Clock. Dad Says They Gave away. I am Hoping It is still In the attic Somewhere Buried.

    Your clock is a perfect example of what seems to be an Eric Schmeckenbecker cuckoo clock. Schmeckenbecker was a common name to see on clocks made by the german company Regula. The date of this clock would be around 60's or 70's. Good luck with it.

    Bachmaier & Klemmer were suppliers and wholesalers in Berchtesgaden, Germany,
    They dealt mainly for clocks until the late 1950s. Being that your clock was made in "W. Germany" I would estimate that its date of manufacture is more likely to have been in the 50's.
    Bachmaier & Klemmer are still in business but deal in precision instruments.

    Evidently this is a very common style of cuckoo clock case, made by a number of different manufacturers but you have a very nice, clean example here.

    If you would like more reliable information along with repair shop locations, I suggest you visit the National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors' website.
    http://www.nawcc.org They have an online business directory. You can also post questions but don't ask about value in the general discussion areas.

    Regards
