However, you might wonder what is so special about cuckoo clocks?
There is a little folklore behind this historical and cultural icon.
The history of the cuckoo clock goes back to the early 17th century where it was believed to be very good luck to hear the cuckoo bird singing in the forest. So much so, that if one heard the cuckoo call, they would take their wallets out of their pockets and shake them above their heads. The farmers in the Black Forest (South West Germany) used logs to build the clock which housed the lucky call of the Cuckoo bird; and so the cuckoo clock was born! Centuries Later, the famous cuckoo clock is still very popular gracing the homes of countless countries around the globe.
Here are a few things you need to know about cuckoo clocks that might help you with your buying decision.

There are two main styles of cuckoo clocks, one is the carved style and second is the chalet style. The traditional carved cuckoo clocks are generally inspired by nature such as flowers, animals and leaves. A popular traditional cuckoo clock is the hunting scene which features the carved animals such as the stag, pheasant and hare, carved wooden hunting horn,rifles and also the satchel of bullet powder. On the other hand, the chalet clocks are inspired by the chalets of Southern Germany. They often feature moving characters and parts which tell a story about the Village life in the Black Forest. Some of these characters include moving Clock Pedlars, Clockmakers, Lumberjacks, Woodchoppers and Farriers. The clock often features dancing figurines in traditional German Customer as well as moving waterwheel and moving characters to tell a story. A popular Chalet clock is the Bellringer clock where a lady in a German Dirndl pulls the rope and rings the bell in the Belltower.
One Common Myth Busted
Many of our customers are concerned that winding a mechanical cuckoo clock is difficult. However, winding a cuckoo clock is extremely simple and it takes only a couple of seconds. You can wind the clock simply by pulling a ring that is on one side of the chain until the pine cones are up. Yes! This is how easy it is to wind your mechanical cuckoo clock. If the clock is a one day clock, then it requires winding once a day. If the clock is an eight day cuckoo clock, then it requires winding once a week.
