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.

The 'Uaigong' is an clock designed as a symbol between two cultures - China and Japan - whom both have strong histories of craftsmanship.

In Mandarin Chinese, Wàigong is the traditional word for the maternal grandfather. Thus, it is this tall Italian made pendulum clock which is a revisited version of the floor pendulum clock well-known as the 'grandfather' clock but with modern, stylish flair. 

This clock is made of wood, coasted in a non-toxic paint and comes in many colours, from the red and gold colours which are typical of Chinese tradition, to the white, golds and blacks which blend perfectly with the minimal design and recall it's Italian style.

This design of clock also comes as a 'cuckoo clock' model complete with a mechanical cuckoo bird.

Worried about your order arriving on time? Nine out of ten of our orders arrive within the estimated delivery time or even earlier. However sometimes there can be factors (such as availability and delivery location) that can affect the delivery time and lengthen it by a few days or even a week or two for some more complex models. In such cases we will keep you informed of the delay and work with the the manufacturer and courier throughout the process to make it as simple as possible for you to rest assured knowing your clock is on track to you. Many of our clocks are held in stock with our suppliers but, depending on the model/brand, some are built-to-order by one of our many manufacturers in Italy, Germany, Japan or Switzerland. We appreciate your patience in such cases and we will inform you of the tracking details as soon as your order is shipped from the manufacturer or supplier.

At any time, if you have questions or concerns about the delivery time of your order (maybe because it's for a birthday, wedding or Christmas present) then let us know and we will do our best to fast-track the order with our manufacturers. Contact us here.
