Distinctive Features

Most Schwer cuckoo clocks are handcrafted from good quality wood. Traditionally, the trunk of the Lime tree, or Maple tree, is used in the clock making, as these woods can be easily carved. All the clocks feature the famous cuckoo call. This distinctive sound is made by air chambers, which squeeze air through a whistle. Two bellows are used to produce both sounds, first comes the “cu” and then the “cukoo”. Many traditional clocks have the cuckoo birds with moving wings as well. Others usually feature eagles, sparrows or owls.

The modern designs use other moving figures like dancing couples as attractions. Some even play musicals when the hour is struck. However, these sounds are either tape-recorded or produced electronically. The more expensive clocks use a music box idea to produce the tunes. Most clocks come with the sound turn off the option that enables the users to shut off the sound or the music during their rest hours. Very few also have automatic night shut off feature as well.

How to assemble a Schwer Cuckoo Clock.

You found the perfect Schwer cuckoo clocks for sale, bought it and now it’s arrived. You can’t wait to get it up. Before that, you’ll need to do a few things first before it can be wall mounted and ready.
Step 1
Make sure that you remove your clock chassis and the other parts of the box carefully as well as the other parts.
Step 2
Place your cuckoo on a flat surface (like the carpet) face-down and open the back door. You may need to use a pen or small screwdriver to help you open the door; just remember to be gentle.
step 3
Once you’ve got the back open, remove any paper or packing from the door and make sure you don’t bend any wires.
Step 4
Attach the ornaments to the clock and make sure you’ve securely screwed in the fasteners to the wall, about 6.5 feet to 7 feet from the floor so that the weights have room to hang.
Step 5
Hand the clock securely, making sure it’s straight. Open the package with the cuckoo clock chains, which is usually on the bottom of the clock. Detangle them so they’re free and straight.
Step 6
The chain hooks should be on the base of the clock, wound and ready, so just hang the weights on them.Open the cuckoo bird door gently so that it can properly come out. Hang the pendulum on the wire loop at the bottom of the clock and make sure it’s completely flush against the wall. The pendulum should have a nice, even rhythm after you start it so watch out for that.
Step 7

Turn the minute hand counterclockwise to the right hour. Do not touch the hour hand at all as that will cause problems. Just keep turning the minute hand until it reaches the right time. If you choose to do a clockwise turn, you’ll activate the cuckoo and will have to wait until it stops before continuing so counterclockwise is best.


To regulate the schwer clock, remember the saying “lower is slower.” You’ll need to move the pendulum slowly up until it gains time and readjust as needed. If the clock loses time, move the pendulum down. You may need to do this repeatedly until it fully gains time but just make sure that you do it slowly. Have fun setting up your new clock, and enjoy the sounds and music that your family will have for years to come.

The schwer cuckoo clocks are used as an elegant and classic decoration piece in drawing rooms. They are a beautiful reminder of life’s simplicity.
