eBay watch: 1970s Krups alarm clock

Krups

I think we featured one of these around a year or so ago and it was quite popular. If you missed out, here is another Krups alarm clock.

An analogue clock, as you might expect from the 1970s, it's a design out of the old West Germany, with, as the title suggests, an alarm function, as well as a black contrast face against that orange casing. The clock is described as being 'in overall very good condition' with just 'minor signs' of age related wear.

Right now it's at 88 pence.

eBay watch: 1970s Krups Comfortchron Lux flip clock

Krups

A piece of old school technology, but one with a lot of character – this Krups Comfortchron Lux flip clock.

It's a German-made clock from the 1970s in a bold shade of yellow, offering the basics of time-telling via those flip digits and power via batteries or mains, so less wires if you don't want them.

It's described as being in 'used but very good' condition, as the 'battery box shows some signs of corrosion', but nothing to affect performance. Just one bid so far, taking the price to £1.99.

eBay watch: 1970s Krups wall clock

Krups

A great, eye-catching design – and this Krups wall clock is still modestly priced, despite some initial interest.

The clock is from the 1970s, with the colour of the plastic described as 'forest green', with a black circular face, a perspex screen and hands on white plastic, with red plastic for the seconds. It also has the original Krups label.

Condition is described as 'very good' and crucially, it's down as being in full working order. £17 is the current price, which seems very reasonable.

eBay watch: Krups modernist-style wall clock

Krups

It dates from the 1970s according to the seller, but this Krups wall clock could certainly pass for an item from the modernist era.

Battery powered, it's sized around 18.5cm square, with that dark outer cover hosting a glass dome, which in turn protects the white plastic clock face. That face has those very functional numbers, with dark contrast hands offering up the time. The maker's name and country is also present on the face.

The German-made clock is sold in 'good condition' and 'fully working order', with a price cheap enough to tempt us all in. Right now it's just 99 pence.
