W&H

Winterhalder & Hofmeier were considered the finest clockmakers in the Victorian era, they came from a family of clockmakers. They were based in Germany’s Black Forest region. The company was established in 1810 by Thomas Winterhalder, and was continued by his three sons Matthäus, Karl and Linus.

Thomas’ son Matthaus took over in 1830 and in 1850 Anton Hofmeier joined the company, who was himself a clockmaker and relative to the Winterhalder family. The company then became known as Winterhalder and Hofmeier.

The clock movement has been cleaned and serviced and comes with a 12 month guarantee.
