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 beautiful traditional chalet 1-day movement cuckoo clock is crafted by renowned Black Forest cuckoo clock manufacturer 'Trenkle Uhren'.

Like many cuckoo clocks from Germany, this style of clock centres around the theme of the ‘Black Forest chalet’. These types of houses, common to the mountainous Alpine regions in Germany and traditionally built of wood and stone, make for a favourite theme for many cuckoo clock makers, who adorn them with common decorations such as pine trees, cheerful animals, log piles and other delightfully iconic ornaments of the region.

Features:

  • Moving cuckoo bird which moves out from behind it's door and chimes with it’s ’cuckoo' sound on the hour
  • Moving pendulum that sways side-to-side
  • Manual night-time sound shut off feature
  • 1-day movement (which means it needs to be wound manually only once a day)

The craftsmanship and attention to detail on this decorative chalet cuckoo clock is certain to impress. Perfectly suited in any room or space with natural wood features or spaces with a rustic or 'down-to-earth' decor, a cherished cuckoo clock makes for a unique and unforgettable gift for yourself or a loved one - it's daily cuckoo a friendly reminder of the beauty in the natural world, of clear sparkling brooks, of pine covered mountains. 

This cuckoo clock has 1-day movement meaning each day 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 mechanism.

    This clock is constructed with a wooden dial, wooden hands, exclusive life-like wooden cuckoo bird and wooden pendulum. It’s weights are made of cast iron and hang approximately 1.8 to 2 metres from the bottom of the clock. The dimensions listed below refer only to the clock without pendulum and weights.

    All Trenkle Uhren cuckoo clocks are crafted in the Black Forest region, Germany with locally sourced materials from the Black Forest. All the hand-crafted elements are made following the centuries old tradition of craftsmanship in the region. All mechanical elements of each clock are thoroughly tested before they leave the workshop.
