This charming chalet style, eight day, German Black Forest cuckoo clock by Hekas features a man chopping wood with his ax in front of the cottage and a grindstone off to the right. Over to the left you can see a small fir tree, a table and the man's trusty dog.

On 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 bird's cuckoo and the man chopping wood. Pulling the lever down enables the man and cuckoo.

Two cast iron pine cone weights are suspended beneath the clock case by two 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 cuckoo and cuckoo call.

This clock is 12.5 inches in height as you look at it. As such this fits into our "medium" size clock filter

*Great effort has been made to portray each cuckoo clock as accurately as possible. However, as with any handmade item, the exact coloration and carving may vary slightly from clock-to-clock. We consider this to be a special part of their character and will make the one you purchase unique to you, and only you. This clock is covered by a two-year limited warranty covering workmanship and manufacturers defects.
