Description

Brrriiiiiiiing! Time to wake up, in the last century! In an age before cellphones and digital alarms there once was a fantastical device called an alarmclock, with two bells mounted on top that were struck by an oscillating hammer.You would wind the clock with a ratchet key, set the alarm hand for the time youwanted to wake up, and when the clock's hour hand caught up to the alarm handthose bells would ring for all they were worth, until you turned it off or flungit against the wall (a one-time snooze option)! Can you believe such an amazing,simple-yet-ingenious mechanism ever existed?

The Ugears' Vintage Alarm Clock is a charming throwback, a decorativereminder of the mechanical alarm clock sitting on the bedside dresser in yourparents' or grandparents' home. When you move the large gear on the side, thearrow hands of the Alarm Clock spin and the bells jangle, giving the woodenclock model its characteristic “clacking” alarm sound. While this decorativewooden model clock doesn't actually keep time, the hands of the clock are gearedso that one complete rotation of the minute hand advances the hour hand oneposition. The clock face features design elements including the sun, plants,curlicues, and a progressing sundial, and sits atop columns that give the wholemodel an attractive architectural structure.

The Vintage Alarm Clock is a complement and companion piece to the SteampunkClock in the Ugears catalogue. Both feature an openwork style of decorativecarving and gearing, blending steampunk style with a slight tinge of Venetianappeal. Both models are rated “Easy” for beginners or junior builders, andboth deliver a big decorative payoff and will harmonize perfectly together onyour shelf or table. No glue or special tools are required to assemble this DIYclock model, just punch the pre-cut pieces out of their composite wood boardsand snap them together, with a bit of sanding and waxing to make the gears runsmoothly.

This DIY wooden model Alarm Clock is not just an attractive display piece,but includes dynamic motion and sound elements, including the careful gearing ofminute and hour hands and the surprising inclusion of the clattering alarm.Ugears 3D puzzles, DIY model kits, automatons, robots, wooden puzzle boxes andSTEM Lab model kits are known around the world for their ingenious mechanicalactions and charming, unexpected extra touches.
