The traditional 'chalet style cuckoo clock' originated at the end of the 19th century in Switzerland, and has become an iconic style of cuckoo clock. Fashioned in the style of the mountain chalet's famous in the region and with design and mechanical elements taken from the 'bird box', 'clocks' and 'music/jewelery boxes' of the era, the chalet cuckoo clock has evolved as an iconic motif. Each one includes the moving cuckoo bird and many also include other moving pieces and melodies.
There are three basic styles, named after the type of traditional house depicted- the Black Forest Chalet, the Swiss Chalet (with two types the 'Brienz' and the 'Emmental'), and finally the Bavarian Chalet.
