This clock seemed to be exactly what I was looking for, but you can't read it in the dark. The little amber and green lights that are mentioned just rake across the dial; they don't light up the numbers or the hands, so you can't see what time it is unless you reach out and depress the snooze alarm, which will momentarily light up the clock enough to see the hands. In fact, the light(s) is only enough to locate the clock itself in the dark. The clock has hands that glow, but only for several minutes after the lights are turned off before they lose their "charge".
I had hoped this would replace a much less expensive alarm clock that does softly glow all night (you have to manually turn it on at night and off in the morning if you want to save on its batteries) and is easy to read at a glance. But it's a quartz movement that ticks louder than I like. I was really looking forward to the Seiko's quietness, which it does have.
