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.

'CuCuRuKu' Cuckoo Clock (Oak wood & White tree) by Progetti

Created by Riccardo Paolino e Matteo Fusi and among Progetti’s best sellers, 'CùCùRùKù' is a tribute to nature and in particular to the autumn and winter seasons when the trees shed their leaves. Wood becomes the dominant feature highlighting the prevailing warm colours of autumn that then become cold in winter with the snow. The cuckoo bird is situated on the longest branch sheltered from the bad weather. The hands of the clock, shaped like the branches, are available in orange, white or green.

Available in six different colour combinations:

  • Black wood and orange tree
  • Black wood and white tree
  • Natural wood and orange tree
  • Natural wood and white tree
  • Oak wood and white tree
  • Silver wood with white tree

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.

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.
