Frequently Asked Questions:

  • What does 'night-time shutoff' or 'light sensor' mean?

    Most cuckoo clocks (either mechanical or battery powered) come with 'night-time shutoff' in either a manual or 'light sensor' variety. This just means that both varieties enable you to control when the clock makes sounds.

    Mechanical cuckoo clocks have a manual 'night-time shutoff' which are usually a lever with 2 positions - sound on or sound off. 

    Battery powered cuckoo clocks usually come with an automatic 'night-time shutoff' otherwise known as a light sensor which detects light levels and disables sound when the lights are off or it is very dark. While some include volume levels as well as sound on/off positions, some models also include an option to stop the sound between the hours of 9:00pm and 8:00am.

This simply stunning carved 1-day movement traditional musical cuckoo clock is crafted by renowned Black Forest cuckoo clock manufacturer 'Hubert Herr' in Germany.

Design

Made from wood sourced locally from the Black Forest, Germany, and adorned with a large hand-carved cuckoo bird with it's wings spread out, this large carved cuckoo clock is a stunning work of art and a testament to the master carvers of the 'Hubert Herr' workshop in Triberg, Germany. 

It's frame, in the style of the traditional carved cuckoo clock, is made up of an array of beautifully carved oak leaves, seamlessly merging with the sloped chalet roof of the clock. The leaves accentuate the large cuckoo bird atop the clock and frame the balcony of dancers, the bright hand-painted edelweiss flowers, the wooden clock dial, and the two traditionally dressed children on either side of the clock; the girl with some ducks and the boy with some goats. 

Upon the hour, the cuckoo bird animates from it's tiny door and sings it's 'cuckoo' call, with one 'cuckoo' sound each for the number of hours of the day. Afterwards, the balcony dancers twirl and revolve on the carousel through the two arched doorways beneath the little cuckoo bird. During this the clock plays one of two melodies, alternating between either 'The Happy Wanderer' or 'Edelweiss'. 

This musical traditional cuckoo clock is perfect for adding some rustic charm and some life and music to a living room, hallway or study.

Cuckoo Chime

It features a charming hand-painted cuckoo bird which animates from behind it's little door and sings in the hour (a succession of 'cuckoo' calls, corresponding to the time of day). The sound can be turned off manually at night with a 'sound-off' lever. 

Music

The cuckoo clock plays it's melodies through a mechanical Swiss-made music box that alternates between the songs "Edelweiss" and "Happy wanderer". The sound can be switched off at night with a manual lever. 

This clock features:

    • Moving cuckoo bird which moves out from behind it's door and chimes with it’s ’cuckoo' sound on the hour. 
    • Moving dancers that twirl when the melody plays after the cuckoo chime. 
    • A Swiss-made music box that alternates between the songs "Edelweiss" and "Happy wanderer"
    • Moving pendulum that sways side-to-side.
    • Manual night-time sound shut-off lever.
    • 1-day movement (which means it needs to be wound manually only once a day).

    1-day Movement

          This cuckoo clock has 1-day movement meaning each day (or 24 hours) the clock needs to be manually wound. The act of winding the cuckoo clock is very easy and only requires someone to gently pull on the chains so that the weights are drawn back to their utmost position. Gravity does the rest and ensures the clock can be kept perfectly on time as the weight lowers and slowly pulls the chain back through the mechanism.
