This wonderfully crafted one day, Swiss cuckoo clock has the classic chalet design.  It's overall design is an ode to the classic Swiss children's tales - "Heidi" by Swiss author Johanna Spyri. This "Grandfather's Chalet" depicts Heidi standing next to her beloved grandfather as she cuddles a kid (baby goat). On the right hand side of the clock Peter the goatherd is tending to a couple of his goats. The bold red eaves of the chalet serve as a striking counterpoint to the rich brown color of the timber edifice. The windows are cut-through, lending the scene a bit more extra texture.

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 10 inches in height and 9 inches across 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 three year limited warranty covering workmanship and manufacturers defects.
