If waking up to some chatty morning radio DJ sends you up the wall, how about taking things back to a more simple era? You can with the Junghans Cavalier alarm clock.
Made by Junghams of (West) Germany in the 1970s, it offers up that distinctive space age casing, along with those equally distinctive digits. Alarm is a little different too, with a 'soft' chime when it first wakes you, building to a loud and continuous ring if you missed it. Doesn't need batteries either, a winding mechanism does the business.
Cheap too, with bids currently at £2.20, plus shipping from Austria.
