One-Day Musical Cuckoo Clock, 1950s

I repaired this one-day musical cuckoo clock. The movement was made in Germany, and the Thorens music box came from Switzerland. The clock dates from the 1950s. The dial is 3 inches.

This is a very good design for a musical cuckoo clock. The main movement has the gear train and governor to run the music box. The music box is a separate unit mounted on the side. It has a drive gear but no other gears.
