A Traditional Scene From The Mountains Of Germany

This quaint Alphorn 1/4 Hour 1 Day Mechanical Chalet Cuckoo Clock represents a fine example of a genuine, high quality hand-crafted Black Forest cuckoo clock, produced by artisan clock makers TRENKLE from Simonswald in the Black Forest region of Germany.

Measuring 17cm in height*, this pleasing chalet style cuckoo clock portrays the scene of a small alpine chalet in the mountainous woodlands in Germany. The chalet features a shepherd using an alphorn- a traditional long horn tool used by shepherds and villagers in Germany & Switzerland for a variety of purporses including to call cows in from pastures and into the barn, as well as for meetings. In addition to the shepherd, there is also a dog and a tree out the front of the chalet in front of the wooden clock dial.

Chalet cuckoo clocks are the most famous and common type of cuckoo clocks and are often shaped as alpine houses, featuring details that represent life in the mountain regions of Europe (around southern Germany, Switzerland and Austria). This particular clock also has handpainted features on the chalet including green window shutters. Chalet style cuckoo clocks can range from simple arrangements of crafted features to very detailed scenes with many moving parts, commonly referred to as automaton.

The in-built cuckoo of this clock makes a single call once every 15 minutes, with no full call on the hour. In addition, the little bird sits out permanently, with no closing door. This clock needs to be wound once a day and does not come with music.

This delightful timepiece by TRENKLE is suitable for those looking for a quality cuckoo clock using methods that have been practised for hundreds of years. With its playful design, this particular clock would be well suited for a childs bedroom.

Benefits of a Mechanical Cuckoo Clock

Black Forest mechanical cuckoo clocks are weight driven and are available in two different movements:

  • 1 Day Movement - you wind the clock by pulling the chain and winding the weights once a day
  • 8 Day Movement - you wind the clock by pulling the chain and winding the weights once a week

Each mechanical cuckoo clock will have either two or three weights; two weights for cuckoo only and three weights for cuckoo and music. One weight runs the clock movement and hands that show the time and the second weight drives the cuckoo calling mechanism. The cuckoo sound is produced using bellows that push air through two whistles creating the 'cook' and 'coo' sounds respectively. If you choose to also have music with your mechanical cuckoo clock, the third weight drives a traditional mechanical music box movement with a pinned cylinder that plucks notes on a 'comb' to produce a melody.
