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

Design

Standing at 61cm tall, it is fashioned in the classic 'Hunting style' design which includes all of the iconic elements of 'the hunt'. It comes complete with a deer head with large antlers mounted at it's roof. Below it are two detailed crossed rifles, and below that, to the right and left of the wooden clock dial are two animals - a hanging hare and pheasant are exquisitely carved in three-dimensions. Framing the wooden clock dial is a beautifully carved hunting fürst pless horn from which a game bag hangs from it's carved faux-leather strap. The oak leaves decorating the perimeter of the clock's facade complete it's beauty and delicately frame the balcony of dancing figurines which come alive and dance by rotating and twirling through the two arched doorways when the melody plays upon the hour. 

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.
