" What A Stunner ! ".

( I collect Fine , Larger Scale Boxes, and Watches, Too! )So My Initial Reaction was Very Impressed , Overall!
THE PERFECT CLOCK... This clock is in my living room close to a baby grande piano and an antique oak ice chest (both large pieces) and this clock carries a lot of presence. My taste is eclectic and I really believe this clock can stand in any room mixed with any decor and look absolutely fantastic; even in a child's room!Actually, if you need a wedding gift and you're stuck as to what to purchase, I do believe this would make them stand up and take notice!
The best clock ever. I have had and still have many automatic clocks. That being said, I have not had any that are a s reliable as the Howard Miller. It is accurate, and doesn't change time zones for no reason as others have. I stumbled on this company and clock, and this is the best ever. When I need a replacement, this clock and company will be my first choice.
Great Quality! I am very pleased with this clock. It's a great value for the money and is an awesome addition to my decor. This is my second Howard Miller clock and I searched out the company to purchase it since the 1st was a gift. Very happy with this product as well as this company. Customer service was fabulous.
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.
