All 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.
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. This ensures that gravity can slowly pull on the weights and power the clock via the inner clock mechanism. Remember to pull gently when winding and it 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.
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
Most cuckoo clocks (either mechanical or battery powered) come with 'nighttime 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 'nighttime shutoff' which are usually a lever with 2 positions - sound on or sound off.
Battery powered cuckoo clocks usually come with an automatic 'nighttime 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 colourful cuckoo clock is crafted by renowned Black Forest manufacturer Hubert Herr. As a wall cuckoo clock model, it's lovely design is perfect to add a splash of colour to a living room, hallway or study or as a precious addition as a modern cuckoo clock in a child's play room.
This cuckoo clock is a 1-day movement cuckoo clock which means it's clock mechanisms can accurately keep time for 1 day without the need for re-winding. All winding is done by hand, manually, by pulling down on the bottom chains. This raises the weights which allows mechanism to keep running which allows the clock to keep time and animate the cuckoo bird and sound. The act of pulling the weights need only be done every 1 days although it is fine to wind it up before during the 1 day cycle.
All of our cuckoo clocks come with a 30-day money back guarantee and FREE shipping within Europe & Mainland UK.
