    Just purchased this Beha #808 Cuckoo and Quail clock. Really excited about it and just had to post a picture :) Three train 50 hour spring driven movement.

    Sorry for the delay. Sometimes work gets in the way of the fun stuff like clocks. Here are some more pictures. :)

    Nicely preserved, indeed!
    The movement still keeps the stop-work wheels for the three trains, which are often removed by careless repairers. The birds have lost paint. I'd bet that hands and numerals are modern replacements, exquisitely made ones, though. I've had to change missing and badly broken numerals and hands of most part of my cuckoos.

    Wow, Thanks Aitor. Some really neat and beautiful clocks. I am still reading the comments in these threads. Each time I learn something about these clocks. Thanks for sharing. :)

    Glad you liked them, many thanks, Tommy!:)
    I own a few more cuckoos, but they aren't as interesting as these ones.
    The PHS and the GHS are yet, unfortunately projects. I've just posted an update to the PHS thread.
