Anyone here into or have a Cuckoo Clock?

My grandma had a Cuckoo Clock when I was a little boy, and I've loved them ever since. I've recently decided to buy a Station House type. The one pictured below is what I've decided on.

If you have a Cuckoo Clock, please post it up, along with any thoughts on them.

I had one for years, because I grew up with one in the house and wanted one of my own. It is long gone now, no pics. Would be fun to find and restore an older one; I’d have to learn some clock skills but why not?

The Chalet style is pretty cool, but so expensive.

We’ve got one we bought on one of our trips to Europe somewhere in a box.

The ticking drives me nuts so we don’t have it up on a wall.

That's a large clock there. I have a small one that my dad bought in Switzerland way back, it's up in the loft somewhere.

Purchased this small clock in Triberg im Schwarzwald. During my last move, I lost the pendulum so now it's only on display amongst my German souvenirs.

I have 4 of them. The most expensive is 7 day with 2 melodies, a cookoo, rotating balcony and two moving leaves on the front. The coolest one is made of clear Lucite plastic where you can see all the moving parts inside.

My friend and neighbor had one growing up. Love the sound

I lived in Far East Russia for a while. The first time I heard a cuckoo in the wild I looked for the clock

Here's two of my favorites; I have 6 total. The larger one is a Black Forest over 150 years old that I restored and in good working condition. The other with the rotating dancers is also a BF and very old.

Great stuff. I like the dancers, but those are quite expensive.

I have a few as well from when my now ex was stationed in Germany. We bought 8 of them, she kept 4 and I got 4. They are still packed up. I have moved too much in the last 10 years.
