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.
Brand: Incantesimo Design
The 'Greenwich Armillary' is a beautiful table clock crafted by Italian designers 'Incantesimo Design'. Made in the shape of an 'armillary sphere', an invention from 3rd century Greece used to track the movement of planets and stars, this clock would be an thoughtful compliment to the decor of any office, lounge, bedroom or modern space.
Each clock is precision cut and engraved by machine to within a fraction of a millimetre, allowing this clock to be manually rotated and inclined with precision. The base is made of high-density, pure transparent methacrylate and lacquered MDF, and the motion work is chromium-plated brass.
Its name 'Greenwich Armillary' comes from the Greenwich meridian or 'prime medirdian' which is equal to zero. The longitude line passes through the Greenwich observatory in England where there exists an armillary sculpture which represents the peak of wisdom and knowledge.
