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.

'Uaigong' Cuckoo Clock (White & Gold) by Progetti

The name ‘Uaigong’ is the exact spelling of the Italian pronunciation of the Mandarin word. Indeed Italian designer Davide Tonizzo tried to create a cultural bridge between two countries - China and Italy, which both have a strong history of craftsmanship.

In Mandarin Chinese, 'Wàigong' is the word for maternal grandfather. Thus 'Uaigong' contemporary cuckoo clock is a modern revisited version of the floor pendulum clock, well-known as the 'grandfather' clock. It's sleek design perfectly embodies the minimal design which recalls the Italian and Japanese style. Available in five different colours, where the clocks body contrasts with pendulum, clock hands and cuckoo hole, this clock comes in white & black, white & gold, black & white, black & gold and finally a red & gold. It can be used as either a wall or table-top cuckoo clock, and it's embodiment of Italian and Japanese design aesthetics bring a sense of style to any room or space. 

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.
