This classic Swiss, one day, musical cuckoo clock takes its name from the brightly colored yellow birds hand-carved into the gable end of the chalet. They really stand out against the warm, rich, brown wood tone of the the gable itself. In the middle of the chalet you will see a large balcony with several colorful dancers. On the front right of the cottage, there is a cosy little stable where two goats are happily snugged away. Completing the scene, standing proudly to the right of the cottage there are two hand-carved, verdant alpine pine trees. The garden, balcony, windows and stable also have many brightly painted pebbles representing the local flowers.

When the cuckoo calls every half hour and the music beings to play, the goats in the stable bob up and down, giving the impression of dancing along. At the same time, the dancers that are on the balcony twirl to the tunes that play alternately between: Edelweiss and the Happy Wanderer.

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 cuckoo and cuckoo call.
