Though closely related to watchmaking, Swiss music boxes and automated dolls are still less well known than Switzerland's famous watches. And yet their inner workings are just as complex - sometimes even more so…. Switzerland's watchmaking tradition long encouraged the development of expertise that combines technical skill and art.
SinceReuge manufactures traditional music boxes in the Swiss mountains — a carefully composed mechanical music movement housed in an elegant wooden box with or without wood-inlay. You will never get tired of watching and listening to these automatons. Real bird-feathers, fully synchronized automatons, a delightful song — a true dream moment.

A music box or musical box is an automatic musical instrument in a box that produces musical notes by using a set of pins placed on a revolving cylinder or disc to pluck the tuned teeth or lamellae of a steel comb. The original snuff boxes were tiny containers which could fit into a gentleman's waistcoat pocket. The music boxes could have any size from that of a hat box to a large piece of furniture, but most were tabletop specimens. They were usually powered by clockwork and originally produced by artisan watchmakers.
