In early summer, Swiss beekeepers living in the mountains surrounding Lake Brienz reap the benefits of alpine wildflowers from which they obtain Swiss mountain honey. Tending beehives is a vital tradition that has been practiced in the Swiss Alps for countless generations. This delightful clock portrays a scene where Barry, the St. Bernard dog, stands guard before a typical Brienz chalet.
In 1920, Loetscher built their very first cuckoo clock, the design of which was inspired by the chalet housing Loetscher’s workshop. That very same chalet also inspired the look and feel of this model, so, as you can imagine, it holds a very dear place in Loetscher’s hearts. This chalet has many intricate and realistic details such as the stones placed on the roof that was used to prevent the snow from sliding down on to pedestrians.
In 1920, Loetscher built their very first cuckoo clock, the design of which was inspired by the chalet housing their workshop. That very same chalet also inspired the look and feel of this model, so, as you can imagine, it holds a very dear place in their hearts at Loetscher. This is the Amber color version of the Classic Brienz Chalet.
Loetscher once again salutes the most dearly loved fictional character in the history of Swiss literature: Heidi! Barry, the Saint Bernard dog, and a snuggly little puppy stand guard in front of the chalet. And, of course, as with all Loetscher chalet cuckoo clocks, the flowers and boulders sprinkled throughout the scene are gathered and crafted from sand found from the banks of Lake Brienz.
Loetscher’s “Goats at Play” chalet cuckoo clock pays homage to these wonderfully spirited animals. This model presents a scene where two goats stand on either side of the chalet, facing each other. With the sound of the cuckoo bird our goats make a playful leaping motion into the air. Below our goats’ hooves are colorful, vibrant Alpine flowers that have been crafted from stones found on the shore of Lake Brienz.
This marvelous chalet cuckoo clock pays tribute to the goat’s wild cousin, the ibex, who prefers the more vertical, rugged terrain above the snow line. Male ibex are famous for their imposing, backward-curling horns. In the scene presented here, we see two male ibex facing each other. Are they going to lock horns? Quite the contrary. Upon hearing the happy sound of our cuckoo bird, the ibex leap into the air gleefully!
Switzerland is known for its spectacular variety of native flowers that seem to thrive in the crisp mountain air. This chalet cuckoo clock is bursting with these colorful, vibrant Alpine flowers, a source of pride and joy for the region’s residents. In the center of the scene you’ll find a handsome, huggable mountain dog standing next to three Lake Brienz-sourced stones serving as decorative boulders.
It is almost impossible to think about Switzerland without certain iconic images coming to mind: powdery snow, majestic peaks, rosy-cheeked skiers swooshing down endless slopes, and of course, the traditional ski chalet. With this cuckoo clock, Loetscher pays homage to a sport long loved in this country, a passion that is handed down from generation to generation.
This Emmental-style chalet cuckoo clock is quite animated and playful. The centerpiece is a seesaw situated just above the face of the clock with two giddy children, a little boy and girl, on either end. The seesaw tilts up and down in rhythm with the clock’s ticking and the swing of the pendulum, infusing the whole scene with a cheerful, lighthearted mood. A large black-and-white dairy cow with big round eyes occupies the left side of the scene across from a proud ibex on the right. Two milk canisters, hand-carved from linden wood, sit on the grass near our cow.
After our cuckoo bird announces the hour with his song, our ibex leaps joyfully into the air and our cow to nod his head contentedly. Finally, a chimney sweep’s head pops up from the chimney with every call of our cuckoo. It’s a lively day at the Seesaw Chalet!
If your desire is to own a Loetscher clock that really stands out of from the rest, this Emmental-style chalet cuckoo clock offers a stylistic departure with its snow-colored facade. Decorative curved wooden beams adorn the front of the house, their dark brown color providing a lovely counterpoint to the white of the edifice, as do the red wooden window shutters.
This enchanting chalet cuckoo clock gets its name from the two bright yellow birds carved into the chalet’s gable. To the left side of the scene you’ll find two curious little goats tucked away into a snug stable. When a tune plays on the half hour, the playful goats move up and down to the music, giving the delightful impression they’re dancing. At the same time, figurines on the balcony twirl upon hearing the music.
This clock charms with several lovingly crafted features, including a rotating waterwheel and steps leading to a corner veranda adorned with delicately detailed flowers. And, of course, there’s our best friend Barry standing at the front of the chalet, bookended by two very kissable Saint Bernard puppies.
