Quartz movement just means 'battery powered'. Unlike mechanical 1-day and 8-day clocks, a quartz movement clock doesn't need to be manually wound and instead will always work until the battery runs out (on most models it takes roughly one year for the battery to drain although this can differ depending on the model). The quartz power runs the time-keeping as well as the cuckoo bird sound/movement. On some models it also powers the movement of dancers, music, water wheel, and other animations etc. We generally recommend quartz movement cuckoo clocks for people who might forget to wind their clocks or who want a hassle free option.
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.

This beautiful battery-powered carved cuckoo clock is crafted by the 'Trenkle Uhren' cuckoo clock company who is a renowned Black Forest cuckoo clockmaker in the Baden-Württemberg region of Germany. This clock features:
Made from wood sourced locally from the Black Forest in Germany and carved by hand by a master carver, this traditional carved cuckoo clock, with carved stag head, is perfect for adding some rustic charm to any living room, hallway or study, and would look at home in any room or space with natural wood features or spaces with a rustic or 'down-to-earth' decor. This cherished cuckoo clock would also make for a unique and unforgettable gift for yourself or a loved one. Its hourly cuckoo chime is a friendly reminder of the beauty in the natural world; of clear sparkling brooks; of pine-covered mountains.
This clock features:
This cuckoo clock does not need to be manually wound because it is battery powered. Upon each hour the little cuckoo bird peeps out from its door and sings in the hour with a 'cuckoo' call corresponding with the time. This cuckoo clock also features an automatic night-time shut-off which works via a light sensor and shuts off the sound of the cuckoo chime and the music when the room is dark.
This clock is constructed with a wooden dial, wooden hands, wooden pendulum, though the cuckoo bird, with its moving parts, is made of plastic. The clocks weights are made of cast iron. The dimensions listed below refer only to the clock without pendulum and weights however, as its weights are purely decorative, they do not add much extra height.
All Trenkle Uhren cuckoo clocks are crafted in the Black Forest region, Germany with locally sourced materials from the Black Forest. All the hand-crafted elements are made following the centuries-old tradition of craftsmanship in the region. All mechanical elements of each clock are thoroughly tested before they leave the workshop.
