Those of us who can’t afford to have a real butler or personal assistant can now feel a little more wealthy each morning. With the Voco Clock, you can now be awakened by a daily affirmation from your own personal English manservant.
The Voco Clock features a classic design with a modern spin. It features about fifty different wake-up messages, as well as about a dozen messages when you turn off the alarm.
Some of my favorites vocalizations include:
“I’m afraid the staff has absconded, sir. And it is my day off. I trust it will not be too onerous to make your own exquisitely sliced toast an perfectly cooked breakfast?”
“I’m delighted you have survived another night. May I add my own congratulations to the roar of the world’s approval? Thank you, Sir.”
…and the oh-so-concise: “I’m so sorry to disturb you sir, but it appears to be morning. Very inconvenient, I agree. I believe it is the rotation of the earth that is to blame, Sir.”
In addition to the wake-up messages, the clock features a soothing, 90-second message to lull you to sleep. The clock is voiced by well-known British actor/comedian Stephen Fry, known for playing the famous butler, Jeeves alongside his comedy partner and House star Hugh Laurie. The Voco Clock costs
