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.

Plays 12 melodies, one for each hour as listed below:
This cuckoo clock does not need to be manually wound because it is battery powered. It features a cuckoo bird which calls on the hour with it's iconic 'cuckoo' sound as well as a faint echo to evoke the sense of a wide open forest. Following each cuckoo chime is a short melody.
This clock is constructed with a wooden dial, wooden hands, exclusive life-like wooden cuckoo and wooden pendulum while it’s weights are made of cast iron. The dimensions listed below refer only to the clock without pendulum and weights however, as it's weights are purely decorative, they do not add much extra height.
