Frequently Asked Questions:

  • What is the difference between 1-day movement and 8-day movement?

    Most mechanical cuckoo clocks are either 1-day or 8-day movement. This means they don't run on batteries (quartz movement) but instead need to be manually 'wound' by hand. A 1-day movement clock needs to be wound a minimum of once every day while an 8-day movement clock needs to be wound a minimum of once every eight days to keep time.

  • How do I 'wind' my mechanical cuckoo clock?

    Each mechanical cuckoo clock needs to be manually 'wound' by hand. This is done by gently pulling on the chains at the bottom of the clock towards the floor until the weight on the opposite end is raised to it's utmost position. Gravity does the rest and as the weights slowly lower again they pull the chain through the clock-work and power the mechanism. Remember to pull gently on the chains and it also helps to lightly support the weights as you raise it up with the chain. All of this might sound complex but it's really very simple and the routine is really quite endearing.

  • When should I 'wind' my mechanical cuckoo clock?

    A mechanical clock (either of 1-day or 8-day movement types) can be wound at any time of the day as many times as you want. Be sure to lightly pull the weight chains to raise the weights in accordance to the instruction manual.

  • 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 musical cuckoo clock is crafted in the traditional 'Hunting-theme' style by renowned Black Forest cuckoo clock manufacturer 'Hubert Herr' in Germany.


One of the most stunning 'Hunting-style' cuckoo clocks in our collection, this clock is made from wood sourced locally from the Black Forest, Germany. Adorned with a large hand-carved stag-head, 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.

In the style of the traditional hunting-style carved cuckoo clock, it is made with many elements of 'the hunt' with its crossed rifles, two beautifully hand-carved realistic squirrels, a game bag, a plesshorn encircling the clock dial, and a beautiful stag head with large antlers. It is also made up of an array of beautifully carved oak leaves, seamlessly merging around the edges of this clock. The leaves accentuate the large stag-head and beautifully frame the balcony of dancers and the wooden clock dial with it's white Roman numeral numbers.

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 current hour of the day. Afterwards, the balcony dancers twirl and revolve on the carousel through the two arched doorways beneath the little cuckoo bird. 

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

One door features a charming little 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 other door features a Black Forest music manThe sound can be turned off manually at night with a 'sound-off' lever.


Each hour, after the cuckoo bird has finished chiming, it alternates between two melodies - "The Happy Wanderer" or "Edelweiss". 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.
    • Equipped with Swiss-made music box which alternates between playing two different melodies upon the hour - 'The Happy Wanderer' and 'Edelweiss'.
    • 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.
