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.

'Formula' Cuckoo Clock (White) by Progetti

Time plus a cuckoo bird equals :-) ... A smile, and the 'Formula' solution for any time. 

Sure to bring a smile to anyones face, the 'Formula' Cuckoo Clock by Progetti is made of high-quality wood, and is the brain-child of legendary Italian designer 'Barbero Design'. It's combination of simple shapes coupled with the form and shape of the written formula, thin pendulum and moving cuckoo bird, make for a refined but playful visual motif - perfect for any home or office where the cerebral and the playful combine. Available in two colours - white and 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.
