Cuckoo Clock 1.0.4

Desktop widget that shows cuckoo chime on the hour, animated cuckoo, date display and zoom on the clock face, for all users who prefer the retro cuckoo clock
Cuckoo Clock is a widget displaying a fully-functional desktop clock that resembles a cuckoo clock, complete with a moving pendulum and hourly chimes. It packs a few customization preferences and can be used with ease.

The main frame is small and the clock is enhanced when you hover the mouse cursor, so you can get a better view on the actual time. The current month and day (in Roman numerals) are shown on the bottom right corner of the panel.

The clock's configuration is made from the Options panel, where you can hide the pendulum or date, disable the hourly chime or mute it at night (set custom hours), enable tick sounds on seconds, disable Roman numerals, as well as enable zoom mode at all times. In addition, it is possible to switch to a different time zone.

Thanks to the built-in Windows options, you can set the frame to stay on top of other windows, as well as modify its opacity level. There are no other options available for this tool.

The widget is very light on system resources, running on a low quantity of CPU and RAM. It has a good response time and works smoothly, without causing the OS to hang, crash or pop up error dialogs. In conclusion, Cuckoo Clock should satisfy all users who prefer a retro cuckoo clock to the default system clock.
