There’s a lot about cuckoo clocks that many people do not know. Not only do they keep track and tell time but they grace your home with beauty and elegance, and tell a story.
This clock is a typical Black Forest house and there are so many things that I find special about it. It has the signature of Adolf Herr at the back which makes this clock even more authentic and something that I can value forever. In addition, it is more colorful as compared to other chalet-style cuckoo clocks that I have ever seen. Staring at this clock really makes me happy.
This 4-inch clock has an 8-day clock movement and needs to be wound once every week. I find it more convenient as compared to a 1-day clock movement that needs to be wound once every 24 hours.
Each cuckoo clock depicts a culture and tells a story. Some cuckoo clocks represent traditions and some depict the everyday life of people in the Black Forest, just like this one, which shows a family enjoying life.
Another thing that I like about this clock is that all the figurines are moving and it is fun watching each of them moves. Kids playing on the seesaw, parents sitting on the bench, and dancers on the balcony move and twirl once the music starts playing.
Cuckoo clocks with two weights do not produce any music. This clock has three suspended pine-cone shape weights which means it plays music. I love seeing the figurines dance and twirl to the music but I love the music that plays in the background every hour more. This is definitely something I always look forward to every hour.
