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.

'TuTu' Cuckoo Clock (Red) by Progetti

As children, many of us played with homemade telephones - two cans and a string allowed us to communicate at a distance. Oh the fun we had!

TuTu by Progetti is the first modern cuckoo clock that has distanced the cuckoo bird from the clock by over two meters allowing them to 'communicate' by means of an electric cable. Thanks to two plexiglass cylinders that are included with the clock, the fixtures can be secured to the cable and the two cubes can be placed at different heights, hung from the ceiling or placed on separate walls. This ingenious innovation allows the contemporary cuckoo clock to be arranged in numerous ways at your hearts desire - just let your creative side make a unique time-ticking display!

This contemporary cuckoo clock is made of wood which is varnished with non-toxic red paint and it also comes in three other colours - black, white and green. The battery powered movement has a photosensitive sensor that automatically turns off the cuckoo sound in the absence of light so there is no need to worry about it waking you up when the lights are off. It also has a switch to regulate the volume of the cuckoo sound or to switch it off completely.

It is powered 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 control.

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.
