Seller: trotterclocks (1,341) 100%, Location: Edenbridge, Ships to: GB & many other countries, Item: 142726439163 TRADITIONAL STYLE CARVED CUCKOO CLOCK WITH QUARTZ MOVEMENTS FOR TIME & CUCKOO. Authentic Cuckoo call echo and forest background sounds, Here for auction I have a nice traditional style carved wood Cuckoo clock but in a 20th century version for those who want a Cuckoo clock but cannot be bothered with the daily winding and those long dangly down chains! The clock features a reliable battery operated quartz movement for time keeping and generating the very realistic cuckoo sounds, a further electronic module controls the Cuckoo action. So no more daily winding of the 2 or 3 sets of chains, or making sure that the clock is hanging totally vertical on the wall! When you look at the clock it looks the same as others, it has real dummy weights and small lengths of chain, a fully operational electro-magnetic pendulum and a cuckoo who pops his head out of twin doors . The case is wooden and features a carved wood surround to the front of birds and leaves with two young chicks in the nest below. Nice tiled effect to the front of the roof. Traditional style dial and hands with twin doors above the 12. The cuckoo sound part of the clock has a control panel on the outside left of the case. This panel carries a volume control, so you can turn it down at bed time, a reset control which sets the cuckoo back to 12. and an adjust control which you press to set the cuckoo sound in motion so that you can adjust the volume. The cuckoo sound side of the clock is quite unique, not only is it very realistic but it has an echo cuckoo call as well as forest background noise & sounds such as running water. Cuckoo only operates on the hours. The clock requires 3 x C type batteries and I would recommend that you buy good quality versions for longer reliable life and less risk of leakage. Not included as per postal regulations. So that you have it a Cuckoo clock without the hassle and it gives accurate time. Dimensions given are purely the case without any weights attached. Dim:. Height:28 cm's (11 inches). Width: 22 cm's (8¾ inches).Depth: 14 cm's (5½ in). Weight unpacked. 1.4 Kg's.
