This Retro Flip Clock Looks Like an Old TV Set

These days, lots of people are replacing their bedside clocks with smartphones or other mobile gadgets which keep time. But there’s something about being able to just open an eyeball in the middle of the night and glance at the time that makes me still prefer a standalone clock. I always loved those mechanical flip clocks from the 1970s too, so this looks like a fun option.

Midclock’s TV clock combines two different old school devices in one: a retro flip clock, and a retro television set. Unlike the flip clocks of yore, Midclock says theirs operates silently, so it won’t wake you up ticking away. Plus it’s got a built-in night light which makes reading the time easier, and adds a gentle glow.

It runs on two AA batteries, so you can take it with you when traveling too. The only bummer about this clock is that it doesn’t have an alarm built in, so that’s a bit of a fail. Still, it’s a cool design for fans of retro tech, and you can grab one over at Amazon today.
