RHYTHM’s newest timepiece takes a contemporary approach to a timeless classic. The "Tori" House is a cuckoo with a very clean and sleek look. The "Tori" House is equipped with a very special cuckoo sound unit that uses Japanese washi paper that re-creates a beautiful and soothing cuckoo chime. Every hour on the hour the cuckoo chimes and indicates the hour by each chirp except at night as the "Tori" House has a light sensor that prevents it from disturbing your sleep. Tori is Japanese for Bird. Quartz operated.
