    Second in the FlipClockFans series featuring the early Caslon flip clocks.
    The Copal Caslon 701 - Alarm flip clock. In early advertisements this simple alarm clock, was touted as a Computer Age clock of tomorrow, and described as a "digital, space-age, illuminated, electric alarm clock." This flip clock is displayed here in the wonderfully retro, avocado green version. This video below details disassembly and discusses methods to get the motor moving again.
