A Unique Clock Design Modeled on A Town Hall In Germany

This pleasing 8 Day Mechanical Cuckoo Clock is a fine example of a genuine, high quality hand-crafted Black Forest Cuckoo Clock, produced by clock makers SCHNEIDER from Schonach in the Black Forest region of Germany.

Measuring 45cm in height*, this beautiful clock provides a modern take on a traditional chalet design, with the overall design modelled on the Michelstadt Town Hall, a historic late Gothic building that was built in 1484, and represents a truly iconic building in Germany, which served many purposes over its history including as a market hall. This unique design features a multi level chalet style building with wood beams, side turrets and a red shingled roof. Our the front of the chalet and to the right is a man standing at a bench enjoying a drink, while his trusty dog sits underneath the table looking out at the world. In the middle of the scene is a cat sitting on a bench seat, whilst a beer maid is bringing the man some beers, and a water wheel is featured on the left side of the building.

This fascinating scene also includes a clock dial in the centre of the chalet, and hand painted details including red window shutters on the turrets. Directly above the clock dial are colourful dancers situated on a balcony, underneath the cuckoo bird. This unique clock also features a timber pendulum that hangs below the clock itself, along with the weights, rounding out the fascinating scene.

Perhaps the most unique aspect of this cuckoo clock is the clear panels on the clock dial and around the chalet facade which allows high visibility into the inner clock mechanisms, providing a feature that somewhat also resembles a skeleton clock - a feature that is sure to spark conversation. Interestingly, this design differs to the traditional chalet cuckoo clock designs which often depict Bavarian houses that represent everyday life in the mountain regions of Europe, rather than iconic buildings such as town halls. This new design provides a fresh take on a well loved design, being the first in a series on iconic buildings in Germany.

The in-built cuckoo of this clock calls the time each hour and once at half past through a door that opens, with an automatic night off function to allow you a sound sleep. 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 automaton (moving parts) for this clock include the the water wheel, and the dancers on the balcony who twirl when the music plays on the full hour.

This beautifully designed clock by SCHNEIDER 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.
