This beautiful carved 8-day musical cuckoo clock is expertly crafted by renowned cuckoo clock manufacturer 'August Schwer' in the Black Forest, Germany.

Design

Standing at 94cm tall, this rare carved cuckoo clock features a large eagle dominating the clock, ready to soar the sky to hunt for its elusive prey. The clock itself is framed by tall fir trees (the predominant tree species in the Black Forest), while the lower part of the clock is designed after the undergrowth of a forest where a fox family resides. A mother fox and her two cute cubs play around their den.

This clock is one of the most exclusive clocks currently available in the 'August Schwer' range. It has a height of 37 inches; width of 26.8 inches, and depth of 10.3 inches and is only produced on a special request and on a customer order. A master carver manufactures this clock, carved completely by hand and hand-painted and this is the reason for the production time given. The complete carving is extremely detailed and intricate - every animal is hand-carved in it's three-dimensional form and thus as life-like as possible.

The clock features tiny village dancers who twirl and rotate through the two arched doorways that are either side of the balcony. Upon the hour they spring to life and dance while the melody plays. 

All August Schwer clocks are constructed with a wooden dial, wooden hands, cuckoo (August Schwer exclusive life-like wooden cuckoo) and wooden pendulum while it’s weights are made of cast iron.

Music

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

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. 

8-day Movement

This clock is powered by 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.
