When the cuckoo clock tells the time, it can make a cooing sound similar to the cuckoo’s song. Every hour, a small door will be opened on the clock. A cuckoo will pop out, stir up its wings and nod its “cooing” cry. After calling, go back to the clock and close the door. The mechanical cuckoo clock is simply the principle of playing the flute. Cuckoo’s realistic and pleasant sound is a major feature of the Black Forest Cuckoo clock. Quartz cuckoo clock is a trumpet pronunciation, accompanied by cuckoo sound and weak running water sound. Some high-end ones also have 12 melodies, doll dance, water wheel rotation and other actions!
The historical records of cuckoo clocks can be traced back to the middle of the 17th century, and the earliest cuckoo clocks appeared in the black forest area between 1730 and 1750. At that time, clock manufacturing in the black forest area was quite popular, and many families made watches for a living. Since the second half of the 19th century, the cuckoo clock has become a world-famous souvenir and a symbol of Germany in the eyes of foreigners.
