The clock is powered by a German Regula movement which must be wound daily. Three cast iron pine cones apply gravity to the tarnish resistant chains which drive the movement, time and cuckoo call. The Swiss music box plays 2, 22 note melodies as the dancers dance. The dial, numerals, hands and cuckoo bird are all made of wood. There is a night shut off switch for quiet time and night use.
