Frequently Asked Questions:

  • 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 chalet 8-day movement traditional musical cuckoo clock is crafted by renowned Black Forest cuckoo clock manufacturer 'Hubert Herr'.

Design

Made from wood sourced locally from the Black Forest, Germany, this chalet cuckoo clock depicts a charming Black Forest chalet house, stained in a light walnut finish and decorated with small hand-painted windows, small edelweiss flowers, small hand-painted flower baskets, and a bellfry bell tower. 

At it's front, dotted with beer kegs, fir trees and a log pile, a delightful scene plays out where a moving beer drinker sits at a table, to his left is a waitress who brings two more delicious steins of German beer, and to his right, two Glockenspiel band members play the trumpets

After the cuckoo chimes and once the melody begins, the beer drinker animates to life and raises and lowers his beer stein while on the balcony of the house, a series of beautifully hand-painted village dancers twirl and rotate through the two arched doorways.

This 8-day movement musical cuckoo clock is perfect for adding some music and life as well as some rustic charm to any living room, hallway or study.

Cuckoo Chime

It 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 sound can be turned off manually at night with a 'sound-off' lever. 

Music

The cuckoo clock plays it's melodies through a mechanical Swiss-made music box that alternates between the songs "Edelweiss" and "Happy wanderer". The sound can be switched off at night with a manual 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.
    • Moving pendulum that sways side-to-side.
    • Moving village dancers that dance to the melody. 
    • Moving beer drinker that raises his glass up and down.
    • Manual night-time sound shut-off lever.
    • 8-day movement (which means it needs to be wound manually every eight days).
    • Equipped with Swiss-made music box which alternates between playing two different melodies upon the hour - 'The Happy Wanderer' and 'Edelweiss'.
    • Equipped with a German brass rack-strike movement by Hubert Herr which keeps perfect time as long as the clock is wound.
    • This clock features an extra thick solid wood case, for extra stability.
    • Solid cast-iron 'pine-cone-shaped' weights. 

    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.
