This beautifully crafted one day, cuckoo clock uses the traditional Swiss chalet construction. This is a true Lotscher classic. This clock is simple in its design but is a real head turner due to the sumptuous warm, honey brown color of the main chalet. Leaning up against the house are two traditional hay poles - which were used in farming for making hay stacks before the invention of modern machinery. On the far left of the scene stands a tall, verdant pine tree. And on the right you can see a fountain well which were used for getting the fresh mountain water.
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 birds cuckoo. Pulling the lever down enables the cuckoo clock to call.
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 controlling 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.
Powered by a 24 hour all brass mechanical "Regula" movement, this clock is wound quickly and easily once per day 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 8 inches in height and 6 inches across as you look at it. As such this fits into our "small" size clock filter.
