This one day chalet German cuckoo clock features wooden hands, a wood dial with Roman numerals, and a warm light yellow hand-painted and hand-carved cuckoo bird. The cuckoo clock case features a beer drinker sitting at a table with a hand-carved tree and water pump. On the top of every hour the beer drinker raises and lowers his mug while the cuckoo bird cuckoos. Two cast iron pine cone weights are suspended beneath the clock case by two separate brass chains.
The hand-carved pendulum continously swings back and forth which controls 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 maple leaf up or down the pendulum stick. Sliding the maple leaf down causes the cuckoo clock to run slightly slower, while sliding the maple leaf up makes the cuckoo clock run slightly faster.
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. The 30 hour all brass mechanical Regula movement, which is produced in the Black Forest of Germany, is wound once per day by raising the two pine cone weights. One weight powers the time and the other weight powers the cuckoo and cuckoo call.
