8 day cycle cuckoo clocks

In 1737, clockmaker Franz Ketter invented the first cuckoo clock. Nearly 300 years later the 8-day cuckoo clock remains popular throughout the world still using mechanical movements and displaying finely detailed carvings. This particular type of clock gets its name from the internal 8-day mechanical movement driving the clock. The 8 day movement requires winding once per week at a minimum.
