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.

'Cucucity' Cuckoo Clock (Black) by Progetti

Bring the city life into your own home with this 'Cucucity' Cuckoo Clock designed by Riccardo Paolino e Matteo Fusi!

This rectangular wooden frame modern cuckoo clock displays the scene of city lights and high-rise buildings in white against its black background. The cute cuckoo bird perched atop the power lines surveys the world below (likely to be your lounge room!) set against the urban sprawl. The time is displayed within a trompe-l’æil style street sign or public clock tower and adds an extra layer of dimension to the piece. 

It is driven by battery quartz movement and the cuckoo strike, which chimes on the hour with the sound of a light babbling brook and sweet cuckoo call, is 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. Their craftsmanship ensures your cuckoo clock works as wonderfully as the world-famous traditional cuckoo clocks of the Black Forest region.
