Frequently Asked Questions:

  • What is a quartz movement cuckoo clock?

    Quartz movement just means 'battery powered'. Unlike mechanical 1-day and 8-day clocks, a quartz movement clock doesn't need to be manually wound and instead will always work until the battery runs out (on most models it takes roughly one year for the battery to drain although this can differ depending on the model). The quartz power runs the time-keeping as well as the cuckoo bird sound/movement. On some models it also powers the movement of dancers, music, water wheel, and other animations etc. We generally recommend quartz movement cuckoo clocks for people who might forget to wind their clocks or who want a hassle free option. 

  • 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 battery-powered cuckoo clock is crafted by renowned Black Forest cuckoo clock manufacturer 'Trenkle Uhren'.

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

Features:

  • Battery powered (typically lasts one year before needing a change).
  • Moving cuckoo bird which moves out from behind it's door and chimes with it’s ‘cuckoo’ sound on the hour.
  • Natural sound of peaceful flowing river during cuckoo call.
  • Moving pendulum that sways side-to-side.
  • Automatic night-time shut off with built-in light sensor.

Plays 12 melodies, one for each hour as listed below:

  • Happy Wanderer
  • Edelweiss
  • Dr. Zhivago
  • Swan Lake
  • He was beautiful
  • Lorelei
  • Home sweet home
  • Sound of silence
  • Clementine
  • The Entertainer
  • Love theme of the movie
  • For Elise

This cuckoo clock does not need to be manually wound because it is battery powered. Each hour the little cuckoo bird peeps out from it's door and sings in the hour with a 'cuckoo' call corresponding with the time, followed by one of the twelve melodies. This cuckoo clock also features an automatic night-time shut-off which works via a light sensor and shuts the sound off when the room is dark.

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 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. The dimensions listed below refer only to the clock without pendulum and weights however, as it's weights are purely decorative, they do not add much extra height. 

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.
