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.

'Candy' Cuckoo Clock (White and silver) by Progetti

'Candy', designed by Alberto Sala (see below) for Italian design leaders Progetti, is a cuckoo clock that is cheerful, sweet and slender - shaped like the candy sticks that give such pleasure to so many children. The length of the clock is further accentuated by the diagonal white and coloured stripes creating a dynamic feature for any home, whether that be placed on a small narrow space on a wall or as a focal point for a larger area.

This cuckoo clock is made of wood and comes in two designs - a red and white and a blue and white - both of which are painted in a nontoxic paint. It'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.

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. Their craftsmanship ensures your cuckoo clock works as wonderfully as the world-famous traditional cuckoo clocks of the Black Forest region.
