This rare Yellow Cuckoo originally functioned as a ‘slave clock’. These clocks were used throughout large buildings and complexes and were connected to a centralized ‘master clock’ that synchronized the time by sending electrical signals. The Yellow Cuckoo consists of a yellow cast-aluminium casing and has a white face. It has been reworked with an entire new clockwork mechanism, enabling the clock to operate independently.

Together with the ‘Grey Cuckoo’ and the ‘Emerald Cuckoo’ this clock was discovered at the remains of an East German ‘Kunstlederfabrik’, a manufacturing company where artificial leather was produced. As the production of this synthetic leather depended on heavy chemicals, even after decades of abandonment the deteriorating factory complex was surrounded by a chemical smell in the air. Luckily we were able to salvage these special clocks in in time.
