Perfect For The Owl Lover

Attention to detail is easily apparent with this fine 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 46cm in height*, this beautifully hand-carved clock features an extravagant pair of owls at the crown of the clock, a feature that instantly draws the eye. Two additional birds are positioned below the clock dial tending to eggs in a birds nest, with the entire clock framed by beautiful oak foliage which adorns the clock. The clock also features a wooden clock dial, and a timber pendulum that hangs below the clock itself, along with the weights. All aspects of this clock have been hand carved with high attention to detail easily apparent.

As this clock runs on 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. The clock features a night shut off function with a wooden knob should no sound be preferred during the night. 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.
