Horse & Logger Battery Chalet Cuckoo Clock By ENGSTLER
This quaint Battery 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 21cm in height*, this pleasing chalet style cuckoo clock portrays the scene of a small alpine chalet in the mountainous woodlands in Germany. The chalet features carvings of a 2 horses and a logger in front of the house.
Chalet cuckoo clocks are the most famous and common type of cuckoo clocks and are often shaped as alpine houses, featuring carvings representing life in the mountain regions of Europe (around southern Germany, Switzerland and Austria). Chalet style cuckoo clocks are can range from simple arrangements of carved features to very detailed scenes with many moving parts (also known as automaton).
The in-built cuckoo of this clock calls the time each hour, with a permanent automatic night-time shut-off function that is controlled by a light sensor. When the room is dark enough, the cuckoo will no longer sound, allowing you a sound sleep, before recommencing as the room lights up again the next morning. There is also a manual override to silence the cuckoo altogether should that be preferred.
This beautifully designed clock by ENGSTLER is delightfully charming timepiece, suitable for those looking for a quartz battery cuckoo clock that is reliable and very precise at keeping time, whilst keeping in design features using carving methods that have been practised for hundreds of years.
This cuckoo clock comes with an option of 12 different melodies (with the option to turn the music off if that should be preferred). The music includes:
- Cuckoo waltz
- Bavarian country trader
- Mill in the Black Forest
- Wood chopper
- Happy hiker
- Drink, brother, drink
- There is a Hofbräuhaus in Munich
- For Elise
- Home sweet home
- Salut d'amour

Benefits of a Quartz Battery Operated Cuckoo Clock
Quartz cuckoo clocks operate differently to mechanical cuckoo clocks. Quartz simply means the clock movement is battery operated. One benefit of a quartz operated cuckoo clock is that they are easier to manage and more hands off than a traditional mechanical cuckoo clock, as they do not require to be wound, and often feature ornamental or decorative weights and chains.
Quartz cuckoo clocks are available with or without music; the models that come with music play 12 different tunes that alternate each hour. Some models feature the sound of a real cuckoo bird in a forest environment.
Most quartz cuckoo clocks feature a light sensor for automatic night shut off to automatically mute any sound when the room gets dark.
