Small, reliable and minimal. The ideal alarm for home to hotel, this Braun classic was designed in 1971 and reissued in 2011 with the blessing of designer Dietrich Lubs. Dietrich designed this and many of the German brand’s best-loved products under the eye of legendary Dieter Rams, who advocated “less is more.” The BNC002 features analog domain with a sweeping second hand and silent silent German precision quartz movement. No snooze, but no need with the crescendo alarm. Runs on a single AA battery, included.
