Traditional movements are weight-driven. This means the weights that gradually descend powers the movement. Thus providing energy to drive the movement and produce the cuckoo call. They have a pendulum to regulate the timekeeping and ensure accurate timekeeping. The pendulum swings back and forth at a consistent rate, driven by the movement of the gears. One of the most distinctive features of cuckoo clock movements is the cuckoo call mechanism. This mechanism consists of bellows and whistles that imitate the call of the cuckoo bird. Usually striking the appropriate number of times to indicate the hour.
