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.

Meet the 'Metallic Chic' Rectangle cuckoo clock from Italian design company Progetti, a minimalist modern cuckoo clock which is reminiscent of the retro-style appliances of yesteryear but with a modern twist. 

In the colourful design world, various finishes are constantly evolving and Progetti has created one such new finish - a new 'metallic' liquid that can be applied to the wood giving it the feel of real metal. The effect obtained is completely new and the application procedure is actually quite complex, making for a very precious and unique end result where no two pieces are identical. Thus, for their 30th anniversary, Italian design company 'Progetti have brought out this limited edition cuckoo clock with the help from designer Alberto Sala. 

Its shape is reminiscent of the classic 'chalet' cuckoo clock, while its unique asymmetric roof and clean lines give it a minimalist feel. 

The 'Metallic' 30th anniversary series comes in four different models as listed below:

This modern cuckoo clock 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.
