A Unique Design That Features Moving Birds
Looking for a cuckoo clock that offers something a little bit different from the rest? Why not consider this charming 8 Day Mechanical Chalet Cuckoo Clock designed by world renowned clock makers ROMBA from the Black Forest in Germany, where the company was established in 1894.
Measuring 37cm in height*, this impressive hand-carved clock features an extravagant pair of birds, one on either side of the clock dial, whilst two chicks are sitting in a nest at the base of the clock underneath the clock dial. The clock also features beautiful foliage which adorns the sides of the clock. The clock also features a wooden clock dial, and a timber pendulum that hangs below the clock itself, along with the weights. A chalet style roof sits at the crown of the piece, with the cuckoo door directly below it. Perhaps the most fascinating feature of this clock is that the mother bird moves to feed the baby birds in the nest below, a feature known as automaton (moving parts).
This particular clock runs on an 8 day mechanism, and therefore needs to be wound once a week simply by pulling the weights. The in-built cuckoo of this clock calls the time each hour and once at half past, with a manual night shut off function should that be preferred. There is no music with this clock.
