Retro Roman Numeral LED Clock Found on Ebay

by Paul Strauss

Long before the recent trend of strange digital timepieces that tell time in binary or in some other cryptic fashion, a little electronics company known as Heathkit made this fun LED clock that told time using Roman numerals.

Back in the late 1980’s this Roman numeral digital clock sold for about $169 through the Heathkit catalog. The clocks featured a solid mahogany case, and a display comprised of 177 bright red LEDs that display the current time.

Now you can own one of these great retro clocks for yourself. The guy who used to supply them to Heathkit now has one of the originals for sale on eBay for just $115.

If you want it, you better grab it fast, since the auction will be ending in just a few hours at VII-XXXVIII-XXVII Pacific Time.
