Every wall clock is different in many aspects whether it's design, color or purpose. Therefore, its use is also slightly different depending upon the requirement. Large grandfather clocks flaunted in big rooms like the living room look grand and sound spectacular. Smaller wall, mantel and tabletop clocks work well in kitchens, dining rooms or bedrooms. Cuckoo Clocks are also popular clocks not only for their history but for their ornate craftsmanship, and they are known to bring instant character to any room. Most clocks today are run by a quartz movement, making them low maintenance and easy to work with. Mechanical clocks are also available as wall, mantel, cuckoo and grandfather clocks. Here at Bob Schoenborn's Jewelry, we also offer a variety of antique clocks that have been refurbished by Bob himself.
Incomparable workmanship. Unsurpassed quality. A quest for perfection. It's what Howard C. Miller insisted on when he founded the company back in 1926, at the age of 21. Even then, Howard Miller understood the need to create products that would be steeped in quality and value. He expected nothing less than the best. And it was only under those strict conditions that he allowed his name to grace every clock manufactured at our sprawling facility in Zeeland, Michigan. Howard Miller was schooled in the fine art of clockmaking by his father.
Howard Miller was schooled in the fine art of clockmaking by his father, Herman, in the Black Forest region of Germany. Howard developed into a visionary whose keen sense of innovation spawned a tradition of excellence that has bee uncompromised through three generations. While the early years focused on the manufacture of chiming wall and mantel clocks, Howard Miller also produced trend-setting avant garde clocks that stand today in collectors' galleries. During World War II, Howard Miller joined forces with the Ford Motor Co. to produce anti-aircraft covers. In the 1960s, the company turned it attention to grandfather clocks, eventually earning the company the title of "World's Largest Grandfather Clock Manufacturer."

SEIKO, founded in 1881, is committed to the art and science of time. The story of SEIKO began when Kintaro Hattori opened a clock repair store in central Tokyo at the age of 22. Just eleven years later, the company made its first clock and, in 1895, its first pocket watch. From then, a revolutionary watch and clockmaking enterprise was born.
Today, after 130 years of innovation, SEIKO continues to dream of new adventures in time and is still proudly dedicated to the perfection that founder Kintaro Hattori always strove to achieve.
