    Turntable clocks

    I have seen a few B&O turntable clocks for sale on Ebay and just wondered if anyone has got one, and if so what do you think? Only £30 so not the biggest investment in the world but anyway.

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Bang-Olufsen-Turntable-Wall-Clock-/300584633266?_trksid=p5197.m7&_trkparms=algo%3DLVI%26itu%3DUCI%26otn%3D4%26po%3DLVI%26ps%3D63%26clkid%3D2108808169882138311#ht_500wt_1156

    I also saw this whilst trawling around for something cool and want one now.(the pong clock!)

    I don't own one, but prefer the 'originals' over the home-made ones such as shown in the auction.

    I'd prefer an original too, but as there are none for sale...........Erm

    Re: Turntable clocks

    Beotime wallclocks do come up for sale from time to time but there's not a
    lot around and owners tend to hold on to them.
    The one in the auction seems to be a fairly quick homemade piece as are
    the others from this seller, quite far from looking original, even if they
    did come in different versions:

    As with most other B&O, it goes that condition is everything.
    Expect to pay apprx GBP 120-180 for a nice original.

    The older versions (with the raised ribs of Beogram 4004) tick quite loudly, the
    newer (of Beogram 8002) slightly less so.

    Re: Turntable clocks

    Ironically i did see the Beotime clock that went for sale, but only at the last minute. I just couldn't bring myself to spend £250 on it.

    I ordered one of those turntable clocks anyway for £30 so i'll let you know. I feel so cheap and dirty[:'(]
