Howard Miller, the world's largest grandfather clock manufacturer.

About this product:

  1. Howard Miller's sole agent in South Africa is Tick Tock Time cc t/a Holtzhausen Clocks.
  2. Remember: These aren't the Limited Edition clocks we manufacture with handmade cases of rare hardwoods right here in South Africa. See www.holtzhausen.com and www.grandfatherclocks.co.za for those. 
  3. Remember: These are also not the 17th, 18th and 19th century antiques we offer on www.holtzhausen.com
  4. As South Africa's oldest clock manufacturing family we are very proud to represent Howard Miller though.
  5. Why? Aren't these the cheap sweat shop imports available at tourist destinations or the so-called "handmade" clocks that are sourced from the East and assembled in Jhb?
  6. No. Howard Miller of Michigan is the global leader in contemporary grandfather clocks.
  7. Each clock is fitted with a legendary Kieninger movement from Germany (Kieninger is owned by Howard Miller) and fully imported from the USA Midwest. 
  8. The cases aren't handmade but represent a diversity of styles and detail we, as a specialized workshop, don't manufacture or copy.
  9. Therefore we offer you this range as an alternative to our handmade traditional South African styles.
  10. Enjoy the beauty and please contact us with any questions.  

History:

In 1926, at the age of 21, 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.
  • All mechanical Howard Miller clocks are fitted with Kieninger movements. These exquisite movements are made by Old World craftsmen employed by the Kieninger Company of Germany.

We 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.

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 we create, and in the people whose artistic talents we 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 we know of doing business. Incomparable workmanship. Unsurpassed quality. A quest for perfection.
