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 1-day mechanical cuckoo clock is crafted by the 'Engstler' cuckoo clock company who is a renowned Black Forest cuckoo clockmaker in the Baden-Württemberg region of Germany.

It features:

  • An inbuilt music box which plays two songs - "Edelweiss" and "The Happy Wanderer (Fröhlicher Wanderer)" - upon each hour, after the cuckoo bird has finished chiming, and alternating for each hour.
  • A carousel of dancers who twirl as the carousel rotates while the clock plays the music.


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

The craftsmanship and attention to detail on this decorative chalet cuckoo clock is certain to impress. It is perfectly suited to any room or space with natural wood features or 'down-to-earth' decor and would make for a unique and unforgettable gift for yourself or a loved one, with its daily cuckoo chime a friendly reminder of the beauty of the natural world, of clear sparkling brooks, of pine-covered mountains.

This clock features:

  • 1-day movement (which means it needs to be wound manually only once a day).
  • A moving cuckoo bird which moves out from behind its door and chimes with a 'cuckoo' sound on the hour.
  • An inbuilt music box that plays two melodies - "Edelweiss" and "The Happy Wanderer (Fröhlicher Wanderer)".
  • Moving dancers who spin on the carousel while the clock plays its music.
  • A moving girl on a rocking horse.
  • A moving pendulum that sways side-to-side.
  • A manual 'sound-off' lever to switch off the sound at any time.

1-day Movement

This cuckoo clock has 1-day movement meaning each day (or every 24 hours) 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 as the weights lower, they slowly pull the chains back through the clock-work mechanism ensuring the clock can be kept perfectly on time.

Music & Sound

This cuckoo clock features an inbuilt music box which alternates between two songs upon the hour - "Edelweiss" and "The Happy Wanderer (Fröhlicher Wanderer)". The sound can be switched off manually with a lever.


This clock is constructed with a wooden dial, wooden hands and wooden pendulum, while it's clockwork mechanism is metal. Its characters and adornments are also handcrafted from wood and hand-painted by skilled artists. The clocks weights are made of cast iron. NOTE: The height dimensions listed below refer only to the clock without pendulum and weights. Typically for 1-day cuckoo clocks, it is best to accommodate for clearance beneath the clock of about 1.5 metres for the "hanging weights and chain length".
