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.

Elegant, refined and timeless. 24k, by Designer Alberto Sala of Progetti, is made entirely of metal finished in gold or copper. This Italian-made cuckoo clock is an essential volume in the shape of a house that seems to arise from a solid copper ingot. It is a decorative object but without excess - a delicate character.
This cuckoo clock comes in two colour variants - gold and copper. It is driven 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 controls.
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.
All Progetti cuckoo clocks are tested for a 24-hour period prior to their shipment to ensure the highest level of quality.
