A Delightful Chalet Cuckoo Clock
This lovely 1 Day Mechanical Cuckoo Clock represents a genuine, high quality hand-crafted Black Forest cuckoo clock, produced by artisan clock makers TRENKLE from Simonswald in the Black Forest region of Germany.
This fascinating clock portrays a delightful scene in the bavarian countryside, featuring a chalet house with a unique facade consisting of both brick and wood with half timbered sections and a shingled roof that is coloured red. Out the front of the chalet includes many features hand carved out of timber, including a grandma and grandpa sitting on a bench to the right of the chalet, and a dog sitting next to a pile of logs to the left. To either side of the chalet is a pine tree. This fascinating scene also includes a wooden clock dial in the centre of the chalet, and hand painted details including window shutters and the cuckoo door.
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). Chalet style cuckoo clocks can range from simple arrangements of carved features to very detailed scenes with many moving parts (known as automaton).
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 shut-off mode. This particular clock needs to be wound once a day and does not include music.
This beautifully designed clock by TRENKLE is a charming timepiece, suitable for those looking for a quality traditional 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.
