A Highly Detailed Cuckoo Clock

Looking for a cuckoo clock that offers attention to detail, lots of colour along with moving elements? Why not consider this charming 8 Day Mechanical Chalet Cuckoo Clock designed by world renowned clock makers HÖNES from the Black Forest in Germany, where the company was established in 1950.

Measuring 46cm in height*, this cuckoo clock portrays a delightful scene in the Bavarian countryside, featuring a multi level chalet house with a timbered facade and a shingled roof. Chalet style cuckoo clocks are the most famous and common type of cuckoo clock, and are often featured in the shape of alpine houses. They usually feature carvings that represent life in the mountain regions of Europe (mainly around Southern Germany, The Black Forest, Switzerland and Austria). Out the front of the chalet to the left is a wood chopper who is busy at work, whilst piles of chopped logs surround the wood chopper, and a lady dressed in Black Forest attire is standing to the right ringing a bell, whilst a dog is standing to the right in front of his kennel. Additional details out the front of the chalet include some carved trees, a water wheel and some flowers.

This fascinating scene also includes a clock dial in the centre of the chalet, and a large amount of hand painted details including green window shutters and flowers in the windowsills. Directly above the clock dial are colourful dancers situated on a balcony, underneath the cuckoo bird. Rounding out this unique clock is a timber pendulum that hangs below the clock itself, alongside the weights.

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. This particular clock is an 8 day mechanism, and therefore needs to be wound once a week. The particular automaton (moving parts) for this clock include the wood chopper, the bell ringer, the water wheel, and the dancers on the balcony who twirl when the music plays on the full hour.

This beautifully designed clock by HÖNES is a charming timepiece, suitable for those looking for a quality cuckoo clock using carving 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.
