The incessant ticking of most bedside clocks is irritating and makes dropping off to sleep a problem. Thanks to a major breakthrough in clock engineering from watchmakers Tavistock & Jones, the Radio Controlled Bedside Clock is different, it’s Super Silent. Instead of the usual jerky movement, the cause of the ticking sound in ordinary clocks, the second hand sweeps silently around. Radio-controlled from the UK’s atomic transmitter in Rugby, it’s accurate to one second in 138,000,000 years and adjusts automatically for GMT/BST. With big bold numbers and glow-in-the-dark hands, a loud ‘sleep-proof’ alarm with snooze function and light, it uses one AA battery and measures 11cm in diameter.
