This was a car clock, built around the technology of the Black Watch, it was more successful technically and commercially, as the case was far more suitable for the circuitry but today is a still a rare survival. Use was slighlty precarious if driving, as a button for the time still needed to be pressed.

Unlike most Sinclair products of the time, it could only be bought pre built.

This unit came from Chris Wilding, who worked for Sinclair Radionics and Sinclair Electronics

Date : 1977

Manufacturer : Sinclair Radionics
