This delightful chalet style, eight day, German Black Forest cuckoo clock by Hekas features a man enjoying a beer in front of his cottage as he takes a break from a hard day splitting wood. His axe and a pile of logs are set in the middle of the scene and off to the right is a hearty beer barrel. At the top of the hour, when the cuckoo calls, the man raises and lowers his beer tankard to cheers the time. Three hand-carved pine trees are set to side of the cottage - two on the left and one on the right by the beer barrel.

At the top of every hour the cuckoo bird emerges from a swinging door above the clock dial and counts the hour by cuckooing once per hour (example: at one o'clock the bird will cuckoo once. At eight o'clock the bird will cuckoo eight times). The half hour is announced with one cuckoo call. There is a sound shut-off device beneath the base of the cuckoo clock. Pushing the lever up disables the cuckoo birds cuckoo and the beer drinker. Pulling the lever down enables the beer drinker and cuckoo.

Please watch this short video to see the clock in action:

Three cast iron pine cone weights are suspended beneath the clock case by three separate brass chains. The hand-made pendulum continuously swings back and forth which controls the timing of the clock. If your cuckoo clock's timing should ever need adjustment, you can control the speed of your clock by sliding the pendulum up or down the pendulum stick. Sliding the pendulum weight down causes the cuckoo clock to run slightly slower, while sliding it up makes the cuckoo clock run slightly faster.

The 240 hour all brass mechanical "Regula" movement (which is produced in the Black Forest of Germany) is wound quickly and easily just once per week by simply pulling on the chains to raise the two pine cone weights. One weight powers the time and the other weight powers the beer drinker, the cuckoo and cuckoo call.

This clock is 11.75 inches in height as you look at it. As such this fits into our "medium" size clock filter
