A Traditional Design

Attention to detail is easily apparent with this exquisite 8 Day Mechanical Carved Cuckoo Clock by German designer AUGUST SCHWER, who has been producing high quality cuckoo clocks in the heart of the Black Forest since 1885.

Measuring 59cm in height*, this beautifully hand-carved clock features a stag head carving crowning a traditional hunting scene. Hunting scenes often feature a hare and a pheasant and 2 rifles. Additional details to complete the hunting scene includes a powder bag at the base of the clock as well as a horn that surrounds the dial. Beautiful oak foliage also adorns the clock, rounding out this fantastic hunting scene.

As this clock is an 8 day mechanism, the weights need to be wound once a week. The in-built cuckoo of this clock calls the time each hour and once at half past through a door that opens, with a manual silencing on/off switch should that be preferred. There is no music with this clock.

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.
