Hi there,
I am hoping that I can get somebody's assistance in identifying this clock.
It is an 8-day cuckoo with a specific symbol in the 12 position on the dial.
Any and all assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome to the forum.

We will need to see a clear picture of the back of the movement in order to identify the maker of the movement.

Regards.

The logo is from Hönes Clocks.


I would still be curious what the movement looks like.
The Hönes firm was founded in 1950 in Neustadt, Germany, according to Mikrolisk and as confirmed by the Hönes website.

Others will know better, but I do not believe that Hönes were / are movement makers. They could be retailers or cabinet makers. Others will be able to confirm or correct this. This is why I requested a picture of the back of the movement to identify the maker of the movement.

Regards.

Yes, a modern clock from the Hönes company, which was founded in 1950. I believe new2clocks is correct regarding the manufacture of the movement.

It will be useful to see the movement of this clock - I would not be surprised to see a Regula movement.

That is VERY helpful bobby2003 ! That is exactly the information that I needed. Now, I can make the trip to check out the clock in greater detail to make my purchase decision.

Dead animals would likely indicate pre ~1995 but the chains look new. You will find a common Regula movement inside. Weights are probably 1260gm but today the same movement would be shipped with 1500gm weights. The movement will have a single letter date code. This letter will give you the date the movement was made. This may or may not indicate the age of the case.

Dang, Willie! I thought I was the only one that referred to that genre of cuckoo clocks as "dead animals"! You're right about the chains - either they've been replaced or someone gave them a coat of wax.
