My parents bought a cuckoo clock, when I was born, in the Philippines. Mom asked if I wanted it because she doesn't wind it and knew I thought it was cool. When I was a kid, I had to do a little work on it to get it to function. The mechanism, inside is huge, brass and fine looking. It has two bellows that blow air over the carved wooden whistle openings.

I am sure it's not worth much money-wise, but I have always thought it was very interesting.

Linking pics is not working, for me. The first part of the link shows up as text, not part of the link, so sorry...

It's pretty! I looks a bit like one I bought on eBay some years ago. I had to quit winding mine because I kept finding the cats swinging on the chain. My grandfather used to collect old clocks and fix them up and he had a few cuckoo clocks. I have always loved them.
