A clock that is trying too hard to be cool


The Spirit of St Louis

By The Verdict

I'll start by saying that £49.95 is way too much for what looks to be metal colored plastic and genuine faux wood texture.  However, the segregated 7-segment amber LED display looks cool.  That almost makes up for the abysmal design of the exterior and the terrible product name.  It almost does.  This could be a neat clock if it were just the face (minus the dial) and the radio function was removed.  Encase the remainder in a solid metal box and then it would be worth that price.  However, anything that looks like it came out of a JC Penny caltalog shouldn't cost more than $20.  Calling it a collectable doesn't make it one.
