Roger Lascelles Electrique wall clock


Look familiar? It just might because the Roger Lascelles Electrique wall clock has more than a passing resemblance to a design classic, but comes in at a fraction of the price.

That classic is the Mondaine wall clock, which has also been produced as a watch range and both travel and bedside clocks. It was first designed back in the 1940s by then-employee Hans Hilfiker, designed to be easily readable from a distance. The design is still in use today.

But this isn't that, but it is incredibly similar, with the same type of markings and the same red and black colour scheme. No mention of Mondaine though, instead the branding is 'Electrique', with the whole thing coming in with a 30cm diameter. You'll be looking at around £200 for a Mondaine, but the Roger Lascelles is available from John Lewis for £39.
