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.

The 'Uaigong' is an clock designed as a symbol between two cultures - China and Japan - whom both have strong histories of craftsmanship.
In Mandarin Chinese, Wàigong is the traditional word for the maternal grandfather. Thus, it is this tall Italian made pendulum clock which is a revisited version of the floor pendulum clock well-known as the 'grandfather' clock but with modern, stylish flair.
This clock is made of wood, coasted in a non-toxic paint and comes in many colours, from the red and gold colours which are typical of Chinese tradition, to the white, golds and blacks which blend perfectly with the minimal design and recall it's Italian style.
All Progetti clocks are tested for a 24-hour period prior to their shipment to ensure the highest level of quality.
