Frequently Asked Questions:

  • What does 'nighttime shutoff' or 'light sensor' mean?

    Most cuckoo clocks (either mechanical or battery powered) come with 'nighttime shutoff' in either a manual or 'light sensor' variety. This just means that both varieties enable you to control when the clock makes sounds.

    Mechanical cuckoo clocks have a manual 'nighttime shutoff' which are usually a lever with 2 positions - sound on or sound off. 

    Battery powered cuckoo clocks usually come with an automatic 'nighttime shutoff' otherwise known as a light sensor which detects light levels and disables sound when the lights are off or it is very dark. While some include volume levels as well as sound on/off positions, some models also include an option to stop the sound between the hours of 9:00pm and 8:00am.

This unusual round cuckoo clock, designed by Barbero Design, has a sleek, almost industrial or automobile-esque feel. This is accentuated by it's silver and grey finish and complimented by an orange pendulum weight and orange clock hands. It's stark industrial feel is also given prominence by it's materials - a mixture of wood, aluminium and PVC.

This cuckoo clock's quartz movement is battery powered and the cuckoo strike, which chimes on the hour with the sound of a light babbling brook and sweet cuckoo call, can be volume controlled and is also switched off automatically during the night by a built-in light sensor controls.

All Progetti cuckoo clocks are fitted with an Engstler™ clock & cuckoo mechanism which is custom built by the Engstler cuckoo clock manufacturer in the Black Forest region, Germany.

Worried about your order arriving on time? Ninety-nine percent of our orders arrive within the estimated delivery time or even earlier. However sometimes there can be factors (such as availability and delivery location) that can affect the delivery time and lengthen it by a few days. In such cases we will keep you informed of the delay and work with the courier throughout the delivery process to make it as simple as possible for you. Also, due to availability, some of our clocks need to be custom built for you by one of our many manufacturers in Italy, Germany, Japan or Switzerland. In such cases we will also inform you of the tracking details once your order is shipped from the manufacturer.
