This extraordinary eight day, musical, chalet style clock is a homage to the artisan winemakers of Switzerland. Based on an actual historical building in the Canton of Appenzell, this one of a kind cuckoo clock really stands out with it's striking white tower on the right hand side of the piece. Three windows run up the length of the tower, each with flower boxes overflowing with colorful blossoms, and vivid red shutters - giving the already arresting scene even more impact.

At center stage you will find a winemaker carrying a sack of freshly picked grapes, ready for the wine-press that is behind him on the right of the scene. With the winemaker are a couple of elegant, snow-white geese sunning themselves in the grass. Over to the left of the clock stands Barry, the Saint Bernard dog with his two puppies, standing on a rotating stage that moves with the music that play on the hour.

You will notice that at the top of chalet, on the balcony, there are some dancers, ready to twirl cheerfully to the hourly music that alternates between "The Happy Wanderer" and "Edelweiss".

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 192 hour all brass mechanical "Regula" movement, this clock is wound quickly and easily just once per week 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 rotating dogs, the cuckoo and cuckoo call.
