Behold my Favorite of All Time Seiko QHE143ALH Ascending Alarm Bedside Clock with Sweep Second Hand! This I bought from my local clock shop a year ago and I have grown increasingly fond of it. The movement is whisper quiet as the second hand glides along its path. The arctic white display glows amber at night in alarm off mode and green when the alarm is activated. The beep alarm ascends in tone, tempo and volume; and the snooze gives me about seven minutes a pop to try and escape the burgeoning realities of the new day. Why I'm geeking so hard on a bedside clock eludes me...but I suppose clocks and watches can do that...as many of us can attest. Show Us Your Favorite Bedside Clock That Keeps You On Time and Free From Your Supervisor's Wrath.
