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

Last week, the alarm didn't sound at all a couple of mornings; just a soft click and then nothing. This week, when it does sound, the snooze just peeps three times and quits. Do the people who make this understand that the purpose of it is to get me to work on time, ...every time!?
I'd click zero stars for the rating if it was an option. I can get a cheap, badly designed, Chinese made battery alarm at Walmart for ten dollars. Forty-two bucks for this is a scandal! Braun should be ashamed! I hope I can get my money back without the box. The vendor sure shouldn't re-package it for sale!
I have seen a couple of reviews that state the re-issue is made in China where as the original was made in Germany, closely examining the re-issue clock and the packaging I cannot find any marking or sticker which says the re-issue is made in China, the packaging does have an address for Zeon Ltd of London England that is all I can find.
Looking at the two clocks the numbers on the face of the re-issue are slightly smaller than the original inside the electronics that are visible there is a few differences on the components on the printed circuit board, guessing this is most likely due the advance in electronics in 22 years.
Both clocks keep excellent time and both respond to voice or clapping to the same volume, we are extremely pleased with the purchase.
I understand that Braun stopped manufacturing them and that quality declined precipitously.
I was hoping quality had improved.
The voice control function on the clock I purchased did not work at all.
