Any idea where to buy these clocks ? Simple model will do.

Not too expensive , budget < $200

A Google search turns up the following:

Not sure if they have any, but you can try the standard "watch" places such as the building in bencoolen street beside OG (sorry, name slipped my memory), or even Bras Basah complex.

My parents own a cuckoo clock and it has been there on that same wall, since i was a child in that new home. These clocks are now antiques my friend. Here are some leads for you to consider. Hope this helps. :wink:

Thanks Sundaymorning ! How did we forget Mustafa.!

And buds thank you .
Checked out the Thinkers Novelty, they exist :-) , but they seem to have the big ones only. $600+
I will check out other places. This is for a friend of DH, who wants to buy it as a gift.
We have a small cuckoo clock too, got it as a gift. I remember DD being fascinated soo by it. She would drop every thing to watch the cuckoo come out. She learnt her numbers counting along with in. :love:
Now-a days we have disabled the cuckoo - too noisy ( maybe we're getting too old) :laugh:

Thanks all for your advice.

DH finally bought it from Bras Basah. He selected a model which was priced at $400+. Bargained it to $335.
Lucky he went. I would never have thought of bargaining. :oops:
I havent seen it, too lazy to check before wrapping it up .
