- A mechanical Cuckoo Clock is usually a wall clock, with a mechanical Pendulum, a set of chains to wind the clock, and a mechanical clockwork
- The clockwork is driven by metal weights. One weight is for the cuckoo, and one drives the clockwork itself. If the clock has a third weight, a little musical cylinder is played after the cuckoo call
- Some mechanical Cuckoo Clocks have a 1-day clockwork built into them, which means that the chains are pulled once a day, and other mechanical Cuckoo Clocks have an 8-day clockwork (chains are pulled once a week).
- The accuracy of the clock is controlled using the APS-Pendulum, which provides a quiet, restful ticking sound..
