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.

Customer Reviews

Very small, very well designed, and it works really well.
B. Markham
Both clocks had an identical problem, being: That the alarm is totally unreliable.

I realize my disappointment in this product is a lack of my research.

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 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 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.

This Chinese-made version is by no means the equal in quality of the original, German-made version, but it is cheaper, costing the same as the original cost, back in 1972.

This is a cool clock, I remember my dad having one when I was a kid and he traveled with it often. But this seems to be a new model that just doesn't work as well. The alarm isn't loud and it stopped functioning 2 days after using it even though the clock it self still works. It's since been returned :(

Very pricy for what you get. No cover of any kind so face of clock is susceptible to scratching as well as batteries falling out, which happened to me. I don't get all the glowing reviews, it is average at best with a very high price tag. Save your money, use the alarm feature on your cell phone.

Basically it's fine: small, lightweight, easy to read and no loud ticking - that's important. I wish you could illuminate the dial with a button press.

A great travel alarm. It adds a personal touch to your temporary room, is small and light for travel and loud enough to overcome jetlag when waking you. Highly recommended for long stays away from home.
