Handmade in the Black Forest in 1990. On/Off Lever for Silent Mode. DIMENSIONS: 11.75" Tall x 9.75" Wide x 7.0 Deep. DESCRIPTION: H ö nes is one of the most respected clockmakers in the Black Forest known for their high quality.Hönes Uhren was founded in the year 1950 by master clock-maker Daniel Hönes. In 1984 the company was taken over by Wolfgang Trenkle, who still runs it at present. This handmade H ö nes 1-Day Musical Chalet Cuckoo Clock is entirely made of wood including the chalet style case, clock hands, clock dial, woodchopper, waterwheel, dancers, cuckoo bird, as well as the tree and all of the additional platform decorations. This clock even has hand carved wooden weights.
Which is an expensive option that gives it a very natural and elegant look. Clock has great animation featuring an animated woodchopper, rotating dancers and a spinning waterwheel.
The cuckoo bird and woodchopper count out the hours on the hour and once on the half hour. The clock has a Swiss made MAPSA music mechanism that plays on the hour and half hour with spinning dancers and a rotating waterwheel. The music mechanism alternates between two songs.
This clock operates using a German made Regula 25 mechanical brass movement with 3 wooden weights that need to be pulled once a day. A lever on the side of the clock turns the cuckoo and music on/off for "silent" night mode should you be a light sleeper. The clock measures 11.75 tall not including the pendulum and weights. Black Forest cuckoo clock was made in 1990 and is in excellent physical and mechanical condition (see photos and video demo).
The chains being a little stretched over time (normal wear) were just replaced with new solid brass 1-day German Regula chains. The clock mechanism has been cleaned, adjusted and lubricated with Nye synthetic clock oil, keeps good time and is ready to hang and enjoy! When hanging any clock it is best to use an angled screw into a stud. Set-up and operating instructions are included.
