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.

'Sheikh' Cuckoo Clock (White with Gold trimmings & Greek fret) by Progetti

Over the years, Progetti has made a tribute to many important cities, places, and symbols from all over the world. Recently it's collection includes 'Ku Ku Kina' and 'Burano'. But now we are pleased to present ‘Sheikh’, designed by Antonio Farina that represents, in a contemporary fashion, the ancient Arabic culture with its specific architectural mosque with ornate dome resting on a linear structure.

This modern cuckoo clock, crowned with either a golden or salmon dome, is made of fine quality wood and available in four colour combinations -  plain white with gold roof & trimmings, white with gold roof, trimmings and Greek fret, plain black with bronze roof & trimmings and finally black with bronze roof, trimmings and gold Greek fret. The base is rectangular in shape, with a shallow relief of the outline of a mosque arch, where the hands and the cuckoo are placed.

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.
