Frequently Asked Questions:

  • What does 'night-time shutoff' or 'light sensor' mean?

    Most cuckoo clocks (either mechanical or battery powered) come with 'night-time 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 'night-time shutoff' which are usually a lever with 2 positions - sound on or sound off. 

    Battery powered cuckoo clocks usually come with an automatic 'night-time 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.

'Cucu Chic' Chalet Cuckoo Clock (Gloss Black) by Progetti

Love to live a simple yet elegant life? Progetti proudly presents it's tribute to minimalism, the 'Cucu Chic' Chalet Cuckoo Clock by well-known Italian design team Riccardo Paolino and Matteo Fusi.

Take a close look and read the text 'Cucu Chic' on the bottom left of the clock. Notice the typography, notice the glossy finish and the chrome fittings - this modern cuckoo clock is in direct reference to the mod design aesthetics of 1940's and 50's design leaders (especially in Italy) where a stripping back of traditional styles was in vogue. Think 'Vespa', the Italian scooter brand that has taken over the world. The minimalist design, the rounded corners, the glossy finish and the chrome details make this modern cuckoo clock an item suitable for any dwelling where elegance and simplicity reigns.

'Cucu Chic' is made of wood and is entirely hand painted with non-toxic gloss varnish. Fitting to it's minimalist design, this contemporary cuckoo clock comes in two colours - the gloss white and the gloss black.

The battery powered movement has a photosensitive sensor that automatically turns off the cuckoo sound in the absence of light. It also has a switch to regulate the volume of the cuckoo sound or to switch it off completely.

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.
