Hand Crafted From The Black Forest in Germany
This charming 1 Day Mechanical Chalet Cuckoo Clock By ENGSTLER represents a fine example of a genuine, high quality hand-crafted Black Forest cuckoo clock, produced from Schwarzwald in Germany, a region otherwise known as the Black Forest. 

Measuring 42cm in height*, this charming chalet style cuckoo clock portrays the scene of an alpine chalet in the mountainous woodlands of Germany with a wood chopper on the outside of the chalet. Additional features include a water wheel and a dog, as well as colourful dancers situated on a balcony above the clock dial. Chalet cuckoo clocks are the most famous and common type of cuckoo clock, and are often shaped as alpine houses and feature carvings that represent life in the mountain regions of Europe (mainly around Southern Germany, Switzerland and Austria). Chalet style cuckoo clocks can range from simple arrangements of carved features to very detailed scenes with many moving parts (known as automaton). The particular automoton for this clock include the woodchopper, the water wheel, and the dancers on the balcony that all move whilst the music plays.

The in-built cuckoo of this beautiful clock calls the time each hour and once at half past, with a manual shut-off mode that is enabled by lifting and pulling a lever. 

This beautifully designed clock by ENGSTLER is a charming timepiece, suitable for those looking for a quality traditional wind up 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.
