The Chalet Cuckoo Clock Kit is a beautiful rendition of a Swiss style chalet that features the Mini Quartz Cuckoo Movement #12000. Watch as the cuckoo swings in time with the pendulum. The movement counts the hours or plays the Westminster melody. An auto night silencer quiets the movement from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. The miniature pine cone weight shells and chains complete the look. The chalet can be customized by staining or painting to match your decor. Can be displayed free standing on a table, or wall mounted.
