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.

As the name suggests, the "Amazon" cuckoo clock, designed by Ewald Winkelbauer for Progetti, is a scene depicting the thick canopy of the "Amazon" rainforest. Upon the hour the cuckoo bird moves out from the jungle canopy to sing in the hour.
This modern cuckoo clock comes in three colour variants - white, brown, and black. 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.

"Understanding with all your senses" is the working philosophy of the German designer Ewald Winkelbauer. This becomes visible not only with its pens, household items, lamps and street furniture made for renowned companies. He has received many national and international design awards and some of his works are exhibited in the MIK museum in Ludwigsburg. There is probably no one who has not had his reworking of the Stabilo Boss Textmarker in his hands. His passion for designing watches began when he was still a student. His ambition is not to capture time through numbers but rather to create space for time.
