A Traditional Design
Attention to detail is easily apparent with this exquisite 8 Day Mechanical Carved Cuckoo Clock by German designer HÖNES from the Black Forest in Germany, where the company was established in 1950.
Measuring 60cm in height*, this beautiful hand-carved clock features a stag head carving crowning a traditional hunting scene, with two rifles hanging just below the stag. Additional details include a rabbit and a bird standing on either side of the wooden clock dial, a scene that is depicted before the hunt has started. Additional details to complete the hunting scene include a powder bag at the base of the clock as well as a french horn that surrounds the dial. Beautiful oak foliage also adorns the clock, whilst colourful dancers are situated on a balcony above the clock dial, and a timber pendulum hangs below the clock itself, alongside the weights, rounding out this fantastic hunting scene. Perhaps the most fascinating feature of this clock is that the 'Before The Hunt' and 'After The Hunt' cuckoo clock designs represent a very famous and traditional element for cuckoo clock designs, making up one of the most popular styles of cuckoo clock carvings today. This exceptionally carved cuckoo clock by HÖNES features deep and detailed carvings, with attention to detail that is clearly evident. It is qualities like these that make HÖNES clocks stand out from the rest.
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. There are two melodies that alternate with this clock after the cuckoo calls - Edelweiss and Happy Wanderer. The automaton (moving parts) for this clock include the dancers on the balcony who twirl when the music plays.
This beautifully designed clock by HÖNES is a charming timepiece, suitable for those looking for a quality traditional cuckoo clock that has been carved using methods that have been practised for hundreds of years.
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.
