Classic in style and timeless in appeal, the River City Clocks MD420-13 Dancers with Waterwheel & Girl on Rocking Horse Black Forest Musical Cuckoo Clock makes a striking accent for your home or lodge. This chalet style German cuckoo clock features wooden hands, a wood dial with Roman numerals, and a warm light yellow hand-painted and hand-carved cuckoo bird. On every hour and half-hour, the girl rocks back and forth on her rocking horse and the waterwheel turns. The dancers revolve on their platform every hour and half-hour. This clock also plays music on the hour and half-hour alternating between two different twenty-two note 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-carved pendulum continuously swings back and forth which controls 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. 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 cuckoo birds cuckoo and the music. Pulling the lever down enables the cuckoo clock to play the music and cuckoo call. The 30-hour all brass mechanical regular movement, which is produced in the Black Forest of Germany, is wound once per day by raising the three pine cone weights. One weight powers the time, one weight powers the music, and the other weight powers the cuckoo bird and cuckoo call.
Please note:If your cuckoo clock's timing should ever need adjustment, you can control the speed of your clock by sliding the shield up or down the pendulum stick. Sliding the shield down causes the cuckoo clock to run slightly slower, while sliding the shield up makes the cuckoo clock run slightly faster.
