Big Ben Clocks

Dept. of Small Things. In the deep recesses of our retro heart, we have never lost our affection for Big Ben clocks. We like the old ones we grew up with, and we even like the new ones that have the retro feel.

We were awoken this morning to a new one we'd never seen: a Big Ben Mini Travel alarm clock, which is a star. Unfortunately, we cannot find it anywhere online as it seems to be a Chinese knockoff (if you know where to get this, please comment below).

Big Ben's were originally (and still are) made by Westclox, which is now a part of Salton. Here's the history since 1909.

It took us some time to find out where they were all available and different models are all over the web. Their entire current lineup can be seen here, whereas antique versions can be found online easily through Google. MGR
