A customer of mine asked about acquiring an inexpensive (but not Walmart inexpensive) mechanical alarm clock. Anyone have a recommendation for a currently produced alarm clock? I could not think of any.
Not particularly current but---go on ebay and obtain one of the later Lux/Robertshaw alarm clocks. Make sure it runs-alarms-and all winders etc.- are there. Thay made good robust alarms. Of course ebay also offers Big Bens and Baby Bens.
Some of the alarms on there had very little use or are NOS.
Thanks, I'll check some of these.
He didn't have a price in mind, but of course wants the best of all worlds, mechanical but cheap, but also accurate and reliable, which are generally mutually exclusive categories...
We have used (and still use) Baby Bens and Big Bens for decades. They are accurate and durable but not generally accepted as repairable. If he wants a working clock as opposed to a collectible, this is the one (even if he does buy it at Wal-Mart).
