Product Description

The legendary Braun travel alarm clocks were loved by many long after original production stopped. Braun's decision to reissue the clock and watch collection met with the approval of Dietrich Lubs, co-designer with Dieter Rams. The Braun reissue of the AB1A Alarm Clock, originally designed by Dietrich Lubs in 1994, is a pared down, very small but reliable clock. The AB1A had no snooze function, but a clear crisp crescendo alarm, and runs on one AA battery (included). High precision quartz German movement. Easy to read dial. One-year warranty. Dimensions: 2.25" square, 1" deep. The 2011 alarm clocks are based on the original designs with slight modifications, bringing them into the 21st century.

In 1971, Braun launched a series of travel alarm clocks and watches. The infamous German industrial designers, Dieter Rams and Dietrich Lubs were the masterminds behind the project; and, with their "Less, is more" design philosophy they produced a number of memorable products for Braun including some of the best travel alarm clocks around. Over the last 40 years, Braun time pieces were characterized by their pure, highly functional and timeless design with no superfluous details: Every feature directly reflects a function. Rooted in over half a century of modern design at Braun, the core values of functionality, quality and aesthetics are reflected in all clocks and watches. The strength of clarity and simplicity of their design makes them a pleasure to use and to own. The analogue clocks were manufactured with the intention to prioritize innovation and durability. The beautifully sleek structure and dial illumination, together with the slight graying back of the numbers ensures that the hour arms are clear and easily readable. All the clocks use precision German movements, known for their silent nature and high accuracy. A variety of models use radio controlled movements for complete accuracy of time. A selection of the very best classic clocks and watches have been recreated in keeping with the high standards of quality of the originals. At the same time, brand new designs on both watches and clocks take the collection further than ever before

    We have owned a Braun travel alarm clock for 25 years. It has run continuously every day for 25 years and just now it is not properly sounding the alarm at times. It starts to click and doesn't make it's beeping sound. I thought it was a no brainer when selecting a new alarm for us. However, these new clocks are not made in Germany like the old ones. They are made in China and are a piece of junk. First, it is really (and I mean really) hard to set the time and alarm. It has flat knobs that are difficult to change. My wife, who uses it mostly, has to change her wake-up time daily. She is unable to do it by herself. Second, the alarm failed to go off on the first morning. OK, we'll say human error... Next evening very carefully set the alarm and same result. No alarm sounds! So I set it two more times during the day and no alarm once again.

    If you are looking to replace your aging Braun travel alarm clock --- Do Not Buy One Of These New Ones!!!!

    I appreciate Braun design and have a collection of the brand's alarm clocks. The original AB1 was probably the simplest of these collectible clocks. Recently a handful of the classic Braun clock designs have been reissued, and this new model BNC002 is the rough equivalent of the original AB1 designed by Dietrich Lubs and released in 1987. It is approx. 2.25-inches square. The original clock evolved into the AB1A by 1994, the main difference being a smaller pop-up alarm switch. The AB1A was available again in the last decade or so, but made in China rather than Germany. This new clock is based on the AB1A, but with some detail differences from the Chinese-made example I have in my collection. It uses one AA battery (a Duracell AA is included).

    This is the most basic of alarm clocks, it is basically on or off. There are no lights, no snooze function, no extras like glow-in-the-dark hands. Unlike some other Braun clocks, this model doesn't have a movable cover to protect the clear plastic lense over the face for travel. It uses a very quiet German-made movement and has Braun's classic crescendo alarm that starts out quiet and gets louder the longer the alarm sounds. Black is the signature Braun clock color and while the originals were molded colored plastic with an attractive matte finish, this new clock seems to be painted satin black.

    The packaging is black and recalls the design language used on many recent Braun shavers. The BNC002 is made in China, with German-made movement. Fans of Lub's clocks will love this most recent release. Fans of design and lovers of the simple should too. Highly recommended.

    I still have my old German-made travel alarm clock from 25 years ago. It is still with me like a noble, old friend. The clock offered here at Amazon, of course, is not made in Germany. It is a much dinkier version, and the ticking is clearly audible. I returned it.

    I used to have the original version of this alarm clock in the 80s and 90s. It literally lasted forever. It didn't break, in the end, I lost it. Totally reliable. I miss that little alarm clock. Despite the fact that $30 is really pricey for a very basic alarm clock, and this one didn't come with glowing dials or a little light, I didn't hesitate spending the money because of my warm feelings for my old Braun. I was severely disappointed. The clock worked just fine but the alarm never worked for me. At least not in the morning. A couple of days, I left the alarm on (because it didn't go off) and the alarm chimed at night. Worse than useless! I returned this and bought a Seiko.

    This one is not really silent and not as well made as the original Dieter Rams clock from the 1980s and 1990's. I don't know why they didn't just duplicate the INSIDE and OUSIDE of that great original clock. So I'm disappointed.

    I had Braun alarm clock back in 1996, and loved it. Since then I was trying to get something like that, but nothing could compare.

    I was very happy to see that Braun travel alarm clock model is back.

    After having it for a couple of days I am dissapointed. Pleasant design, and the sound of the alarm is nice, it's exactly like it used to be 18 years ago.

    However, no glowing in the dark, no light, no coverlid. I really don't like that I cannot see what time it is when I wake up in the middle of the night. For me that's the most important part of having bedside alarm clock.

    I have been using Braun travel alarm clocks for the last 30 years. I had to replace the last one, which no longer worked after a good 15 years, so naturally I looked for the latest model.
    The design is still beautiful, but I cannot understand why for the price you do not get a light and snooze button as it use to have. Those are features (especially the snooze button) you can find in clocks one third the price of Braun's.
    Nevertheless, I have not returned it: the beauty compensates for the lack in features, but I am not inclined to recommend this item.

    This is a classy little clock, whose clean design is its chief selling point. Much as I like it, I unfortunately found a somewhat important flaw in it. The alarm does not necessarily go off at the time which you set it to; it can be up to a quarter hour early or late. I personally use it as a desk clock, so it's not a critical issue for me, but since it's sold as an alarm clock, that may be a deal breaker for you.
