    Cuckoo Clocks

    I remember always wanting a cuckoo clock when i was younger.
    Maybe i'll get one. I'm looking for soemthing with a modern look. I dont want any of those wood ones with animals carved into it.

    I'm looking for something more like this:


    Maybe even skeletonised and mechanical, like a Richard Mille. The one above is quartz.

    That is an interesting looking clock, still has a little bird in it though.


    Understeer is when you hit the wall with your front end. Oversteer is when you hit the wall with your rear end. Horsepower is how hard you hit the wall. Torque is how far you move the wall.

    Re: Cuckoo Clocks

    If it doesn't have a cuckoo bird in it, is it still considered a cuckoo clock?

    As long as someone 'cuckoos' each hour. I'll consider it as one.

    Ho, wooahhh... wait one here guys...

    A cuckoo clock, to be a cuckoo clock MUST have a pendulum, it MUST have weights and it MUST have tacky woodcraft.

    What was pictured was some Warhol-inspired nightmare of a conception of a cuckoo clock that should not even be in the same thread of discussion. What is that monstrosity? Battery-powered quartz? The HORROR!

    Why not complete the abomination and have it atomic?

    Truly, we are at the End of Days....

    A wooden one is too old style.

    If you want a modern one, and can live without a literal cuckoo, how about a JLC Atmos clock? =P

    It sounds like you're looking for a homage cuckoo clock, or perhaps a cuckoo inspired clock.
