A bit of history

Flip clocks are truly marvels of mechanical design. The genesis of the vintage flip clock can be traced back to the late 19th century, thanks to the inventive prowess of Austrian engineer Josef Pallweber. Yet, it wasn't until more than 70 years later that these clocks gained widespread popularity when Sony incorporated the mechanism into the world's first flip clock radio. This sparked a new retro flip clock trend that thrived for two decades, but interest in flip clocks abruptly dwindled in the early 1980s. However, in a remarkable twist of design trends, flip clocks returned triumphant in 2005 as cherished retro design elements, once again captivating a broad audience.
