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.

CHRISTMAS DELIVERY TIMES: With increased courier demand, and also logistic issues caused by Brexit and Covid, we make no guarantees for whether orders made on the 7th of December (or later) will arrive before Christmas for our UK customers. Also, the Progetti workshop closes over Christmas and New Years, so if any orders are made after the 7th of December, there is a strong chance that they WILL NOT be dispatched before Christmas and in fact will most likely be ready to ship in late January or early Feburary once Progetti are back from holiday. As an alternative, we offer a range of 'custom message' gift cards which makes for a unique present. They can be used at any time and are sent to you digitally. See our range of Gift Cards here.

IMPORT COSTS: Cuckoo Collections is proud to announce that we will pay for ALL customs charges or Import VAT costs for our UK customers (due to the new Brexit trade union with the EU).

'Tartan' Cuckoo Clock (White and Tartan blue) by Progetti

Inspired by the typical houses of the United Kingdom, characterised by sloping roofs, flashings and vibrant colors, Tartan Cuckoo Clock by Progetti is a clock that is well-suited to various types of homes.

Precisely, the tartan pattern recalls the landscapes of the Scottish Highlands as well as the typical kilt. This modern cuckoo clock, in white-painted wood, is in the form of a cottage and encloses the 'facade' that showcases different shades (blue, red and green) of plaid fabric. The center of the clock displays the white clock hands and the cuckoo bird.

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.
