The legendary Braun travel alarm clocks were loved by many long after original production stopped. Braun's decision to reissue the clock and watch collection met with the approval of Dietrich Lubs, co-designer with Dieter Rams. The Braun reissue of the AB1A Alarm Clock, originally designed by Dietrich Lubs in 1994, is a pared down, very small but reliable clock. The AB1A had no snooze function, but a clear crisp crescendo alarm, and runs on one AA battery (included). High precision quartz German movement. Easy to read dial. One-year warranty. Dimensions: 2.25" square, 1" deep. The 2011 alarm clocks are based on the original designs with slight modifications, bringing them into the 21st century.
