A Vintage moving Water wheel Musical Cuckoo Clock2 tunes play alternating each half hourLARGE 38 COMB MUSIC BOXSilent Option
Please look at all the photos to appreciate the very fine detailed case, it is very interesting with windows and doors, a moving water wheel and two outhouses. The beautiful chalet style wooden case is in great condition for age, please refer to photos.
There is a door which the bird comes out and moves his beak - this door can be held shut with a small lever which stops the cuckoo and the music.
3 original cast iron weights which power the clock are in a pine-cone style.
The back door opens for access to the movement / music box. Splits in the roof, not noticeable when the clock is on the wall.
The original wooden dial is in excellent condition and has Roman numerals. The hands are white traditional cuckoo clock style.
This is a two train movement with large music box, which strikes every hour counting and once each half hour. Every 30 minutes the music box plays one of two tunes - Please see the video below. The movement is made in Germany by REGULA. The cuckoos are produced by two original bellows and the striking on a coiled gong. The clock can be silenced by latching the cuckoo door with lever. The clock keeps very accurate time and is regulated by its wooden pendulum. Once wound by pulling down the three chains the clock will run for over 30 hours as this is a One day clock.
The movement has been DISMANTLED, CLEANED with the appropriate chemicals, REASSEMBLED, OILED correctly and TESTED for your satisfaction.
Height: 40cm Width: 40cm Depth: 20cm (Not including pendulum and weights)
I will guarantee this clock in working order for 12 months, I do not make home calls, so the clock would have to be brought back to me or posted to me (Buyer to pay all postal charges to and from). Not covering abuse or cosmetic damage. Please note these clocks require some slight expertise and common sense to setup, which includes placing the clock on a completely level surface and hanging the pendulum on and winding once per week.
