  • Sony flip clock wanted

    what a fantastic group this is! I’m so glad I found it. I’m desperately hoping that you may be able to help me as I’m looking for a flip clock for my dad. He had one in the 70’s/ 80’s and it was made by Sony. It was a bedside radio alarm clock. I’d love to be able to get a replacement for him (although he said it doesn’t necessarily have to be Sony) I live in the uk so it would need to be posted here. Do any of you have any advice about where I might find one?

    Hi, I would try to find one locally, flea markets, estate sales that sort of thing to start with. Also check out ebay or etsy. Just keep in mind, if you want to buy one from the states to check the voltage first.

        Keep in mind that many flip clocks are tuned to the frequency of the AC mains for the country they were designed for. I don't know much about the power adapters you'd use if you got a foreign clock, but if the frequency is wrong, the speed of the clock might be affected (sped up or slowed down.)
