In the west-central part of Switzerland in the canton of Bern is a valley known as the Emmental, a dreamy, hilly landscape dotted with wooden bridges, cheese dairies, castles and idyllic farms. Our ‘Edelweiss Chalet’ clock pays tribute to this beloved region with its finely crafted rendering of a typical Emmental-style chalet. The region is also famous for its woodcarving craftsmen, two of whom you’ll find represented here on either side of the chalet’s edifice. A proud ibex, with its majestic, backward-curling horns stands off to the left side of the scene while a classic Emmental fountain well graces the right side.
An arrangement of the widely admired Swiss Edelweiss flower, hand-carved from the wood of linden trees, graces the bottom-center portion of the chalet beneath the clock.
This quartz model is powered by two ‘C’ batteries. The chalet and figurines, hand-carved from locally sourced wood, are made with the same loving care and devotion to detail as our mechanical clocks. There are only two diffferences between the quartz and mechanical clocks. With the quartz there is no need for winding, and secondly, the quartz clock’s cuckoo sound is a high-quality recording. The weights are for aesthetic purposes and are made of solid iron.
The ornaments are hand-carved and hand-painted, which makes each one of them original and unique.
This clock features a manual switch that allows you to turn off the cuckoo without affecting the clock’s movement.
