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 beautifully carved 8-day movement traditional 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 hand-carved cuckoo bird, hand-carved maple leaves and two wood-pecker birds on either side of the clock dial, this 8-day movement carved cuckoo clock is perfect for adding some rustic charm to a living room, hallway or study.

Cuckoo Chime

It features a charming 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. 

This clock features:

    • Moving cuckoo bird which moves out from behind it's door and chimes with it’s 'cuckoo' sound on the hour. 
    • Equipped with a German brass rack-strike movement by Hubert Herr which keeps perfect time as long as the clock is wound.
    • Moving pendulum that sways side-to-side.
    • Manual night-time sound shut-off lever.
    • 8-day movement (which means it needs to be wound manually every eight days).

    8-day Movement

          This cuckoo clock has 8-day movement meaning approximately every eight days 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 clock-work mechanism.
