I love this clock! It looks like something my grandfather would have used. The finish is hand-alyered for a true antique look, and it only uses one AA battery. It measures about 4" wide by 7" tall, and features a tiny inset that tells you what time the alarm will sound.

So civilized and upper-crust, it's not just a lowly alarm clock, it's MORE. It wakes you with a discreet cough and "Good morning, ma'am" then a humourous message. So many messages, in fact, that it can wake you every morning for six months before it repeats! It's made of shiny black laquer and takes three AA batteries. So refined and elegant, and no annoying, lower-class buzzer.

I hate waking up to a harsh, annoying buzzer... bird song sounds so much lovlier, doesn't it? This clock features a sweet chirpy bird perched atop the clock that will glow and pulse when the alarm goes off, and instead of a buzzer, she chirps... so nice!
I suppose if you have to wake to an alarm each morning, one of these clocks will do nicely! I love the little chirpy bird clock... which of these do yo ulike best? Or do you have the perfect alarm clock already (if so, which one is it?)... please share!
