Exuding old world charm and classic European appeal, the River City Clocks MD816-14 Fisherman Raises Pole and Moving Waterwheel Musical Cottage Cuckoo Clock is sure to fit your style and decor. At the top of every hour, the fisherman on this German cuckoo clock raises his pole up and down, while the waterwheel turns and the dancers revolve. This clock also plays music on the hour alternating between two different melodies--Edelweiss and The Happy Wanderer. Three cast iron pine cone weights are suspended beneath the clock case by three separate brass chains. The hand-made pendulum continuously swings back and forth to control the timing of the clock. On every hour the cuckoo bird emerges from a swinging door above the clock dial and counts the hour by cuckooing once per hour, while the half hour is announced with one cuckoo call. There is a sound shut-off device beneath the base of the cuckoo clock. Pushing the lever up disables the fisherman and waterwheel, cuckoo birds cuckoo, and the music. Pulling the lever down enables the fisherman and waterwheel to move and allows the music and cuckoo call. The eight-day all brass mechanical regular movement, which is produced in the Black Forest of Germany, is wound once every eight days by raising the three pine cone weights. One weight powers the time, one weight powers the music, dancers, fisherman, and waterwheel, and the other weight powers the cuckoo bird and cuckoo call.
