Our charming wooden chalet-style clock features a young accordion player in traditional dress, accompanied by a Saint Bernard carrying a barrel of brandy, which is a staple of Alpine folklore. A cuckoo emerges from the rafters to announce each hour. Includes automatic night-off light sensor.

          I have several Black Forest Cuckoo clock from Germany. All with weights, this was my first battery operated Cuckoo Clock. I won't go back to the labor intensive chains. This little wood clock sound great and keeps flawless time. It stays quiet when dark outside (if you choose) of course it has the National Geographic quality I've come to expect and always enjoy. I love it and bought another for a gift.

                  I chose this based on the positive reviews but the three I received worked only a short time, except for number two which did not work right out of the box. I was so disappointed because I loved it. The cuckoo was so pleasant, not annoying as some I have heard. It shut off at night. It was beautiful and just the right size to fit into a small spot. So glad some of you got a keeper. Wish it had been me also.

                      This was a gift I gave to my husband. He loves clocks and has mentioned he'd love to have a cuckoo clock. He's lived in Germany,so can say with authority that this clock is a good example of German craftsmanship. We were afraid that any small light in the room might keep it "cuckooing" but the refer lights and various other electronic devices did not disturb its sleep. The "cuckoo" voice is delightful. It is not loud or harsh. There is a sound like water running, as it cuckoos and there is an echo, which was puzzling at first. Guests have had very favorable comments like:"look at the detail of the little shutters on the windows!"

                      I personally loved it. It was my wedding gift to my best friend. She and her hsband love it, so do the guests who visit them. They had to wind it back just so that the guest could hear the cuckoo again:) Plus , it a constant reminder in the house!They tell me , its their few seconds of romance every hour.

                        I absolutely recommend this adorable clock. The craftsmanship is simply outstanding. My sister -in -law that has one too that is several years old and the design is almost identical to this one .This clock is much better than hers because it has an automatic shut off switch when the lights go off.We can sleep soundly through the night with no disturbances, but it's so nice to hear it during the day!This is a great heirloom to pass down to a family member that is straight from the old country..love it ;o)

                            We toured Switzerland in Sep 2012 and saw this Chalet Cuckoo Clock in a store, but didn't buy it. When we arrived back home we saw it in the National Geographic Catalogue and just had to have it. The clock brings back wonderful memories of our trip and looks fantastic hanging in our living room. It is beautifully built and is of excellent quality.

                            Our deluxe cuckoo clock is part of a craft tradition that dates back to the mid-1700s in Germany’s Black Forest. A cuckoo emerges to announce the hour, and a quartet of Black Forest dancers goes for a spin under the chalet’s eaves.

                            Germany’s Black Forest is famous for Oktoberfest, lederhosen, storybook castles, and its most whimsical invention: the cuckoo clock. The first Schwarzwälder Uhr (Black Forest clocks) date back to the early 18th century and have since become the symbol of the region’s fine craftsmanship. Following in this long tradition, this delightful handmade clock chimes on the hour and plays 12 distinct melodies. After a chime for each hour, the clock’s dancers turn and spin to a lilting melody. It is quieted automatically during nighttime hours thanks to a little fairytale magic and a light sensor.

                            This charming owl clock with its tail feather pendulum has an ancient connection to the mythology of Colombia’s precolonial Muisca culture. Huitaca was the goddess of pleasure, drink, and dance. Her husband, Bochica, was the god of morality. This unlikely match ended when Bochica, frustrated with his wife’s antics, turned her into an owl and commanded her to hold up the sky. Artisans in Cota, Colombia, craft this bright accent piece from hand-painted metal. Let its whimsy remind you to enjoy life’s pleasures, in moderation.
