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.

'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.
