This beautiful one day, musical, chalet style cuckoo clock is a limited edition and once all are sold, no more will be produced - each one comes with a golden plate with the production number of your clock. This cuckoo clock depicts a classic Swiss farm scene. Standing at the center of it all is, of course, the busy farmer, going about his daily tasks. To the left of his is one of the farm's many chickens, sitting happily on a little bridge that crosses the stream flowing to the chalet's waterwheel. Over to the right of the farmer is a typical Swiss diary cow, chewing away on her bail of hay. She sports the classic Alpine cowbell around her neck - an important tool that helps farmer's locate cows that have wandered off and gotten lost while grazing on the mountain grass.

An additional two cowbells hang on either side of the front of the cottage, as commonly seen in rural Switzerland, and the whole scene is replete with many beautiful and colorful Alpine flowers. On the balcony above the clock face, dancers stand ready to twirl to the music which plays on the hour.

When the cuckoo calls on the hour, after he has finished his calling, music will begin to play on the hour and the dancers on the balcony will dance to one of two wonderful melodies that alternate between: Edelweiss and the Happy Wanderer. As they do so the waterwheel will also turn and the hay bale in front of the cow will rotate.

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 and the music. Pulling the lever down enables the cuckoo clock to play the music and cuckoo call.

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 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 three pine cone weights. One weight powers the time; one powers the music box; and the other weight powers the dancers, the waterwheel, the hag bale, the cuckoo and cuckoo call.
