These compact alarm clocks are a master class in simplicity of design and practicality of function.
Combining the retro aesthetic that so many people love with reliability and longevity that comes with a manufacturer who's been refining their craft for decades.
..and if you've ever wanted to wake up like Bill Murray in Groundhog Day, seeing the numbers flip over in that ever so satisfying way as the alarm blares out then now is your chance!
The AL-30 models have a 12-hour (AM and PM) display and can sit on a desktop, shelf, or indeed a bedside table.
The clock takes one size C battery which should last you a couple of years or so depending on the brand.
There's a high quality, and long life, German mechanism at the heart of the clock that will provide you with an accuracy of about 1.5 sec/month between 20°C & 25°C.
Clock operation is straightforward:
There are two wheels on the left of the unit, one inside the other.
The outer wheel sets the alarm (in ten-minute increments) and the inner wheel sets the time.
Then we have two buttons on the top; one is the alarm on/off and the other is a button to light up the small LED illumination mounted to the left of the hour flaps. Just strong enough to help you see the time in a dark room at 3am.
Dimension: 200 x 105 x 75 mm
