"Not just another pretty face.". I really like the fact that there is a choice of chimes. Both are nice. The volume control is a great feature. I can set it to where I can hear it when it chimes, but still clearly hear the TV or music. I also really like the fact that it has a night setting so that it does not chime through the later night hours. As for looks, it is more than just a pretty face. It has a classical look to it that draws your attention to it when you enter the room. Overall, I Love the clock.
This clock was perfect. Beautiful Chimes. This was a wedding gift for my daughter who grew up with a similar mantel clock in our home. This clock brought her many old memories of her childhood and will bring many new memories in her new life. I was thrilled to find something so similar to the clock I received as a wedding gift 50 years ago. My daughter loves it. It works perfectly in her new home.
I LOVE this clock! This clock is everything I hoped it would be. It looks great, keeps excellent time, and has a variety of sound options (including different chimes, ability to shut off the chimes at night, and choice of no chimes if needed). It's battery power makes it fuss-free: there is no cord to plug in, and no winding required. I am very satisfied with my purchase.
Stylish, but not sturdy. I wanted a clock with illuminated numbers so I could see it when I wake up at night. I use it in my office/guestroom. I really like its look and that it is small enough to fit on a end table. The casing is 'faux', but it is pretty solid.(heavy) It has a turn-style alarm (so it cannot be set to the minute if you are wanting that) and there is no snooze. The alarm is a gradually increasing beep-beep, which is good for lighter sleepers. Unfortunately, the handle piece on top is plastic and broke within days of purchase after an accidental fall (on carpet). This was disappointing since , although not super expensive, it wasn't a bargain either. Overall I like it, with some obvious issues.
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, 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 been 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 its attention to grandfather clocks, eventually earning the company the title of "World's Largest Grandfather Clock Manufacturer."
In 1989, Howard Miller began creating collectors cabinets with the same attention to detail and craftsmanship inherent in their clockmaking. Fashioned from glass and hardwoods, the cabinets are ideal for displaying heirlooms, plates, glassware and other collectibles.
As part of the company's continuing effort to bring customers only the best in handcrafted products, Howard Miller recently acquired three companies: The Hekman Furniture Company produces a strong cadre of carefully sculpted hardwood pieces that range from 18th and 19th Century reproductions, to contemporary products featuring fine metals and exotic woods. The Woodmark Company makes fine upholstered pieces. And the exquisite movement in many clocks they offer is made by Old World craftsmen employed by the Kieninger Company of Germany.
While Howard Miller products might once have been primarily considered as gifts for weddings, anniversaries and retirements, the company's expanded line of offerings is enticing more and more buyers who simply desire quality timepieces and furniture in their homes and businesses -- no occasion required.
They offer hundreds of items to complement any decor ranging from portable alarm clocks to desk sets to wall and mantel clocks to collectors cabinets to limited edition grandfather clocks. And in price ranges that may surprise you - from $5 to $15,000.
No matter the price of the purchase, you have the same assurance that Howard C. Miller provided when he began offering clocks more than 70 years ago: That quality be reflected both in the products they create, and in the people whose artistic talents they rely on to manufacture them.
The legacy left by Howard C. Miller isn't an easy one to emulate. But it's the only way they know of doing business. Incomparable workmanship. Unsurpassed quality. A quest for perfection. **DISCOUNTS AND REBATES NOT APPLICABLE TO HOWARD MILLER**
