Rated 5 out of 5Â by VLPinVA Time Stands Still for No Man
I purchased this clock as a gift for my husband for Christmas. We go a couple times a year to a cabin in the woods of Pennsylvania. There are no clocks there, which I like. But, my husband is forever looking for a clock and wants an alarm clock to get up in the mornings. He was tickled when he saw this was one of his gifts! He said now he could depend on it to get him up and running while we were relaxing. And I thought not having an alarm clock was the whole point! [Chuckle] Oh well, whatever makes him happy. I do not have to answer to the alarm.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by Name1 Poor quality
I was shocked to see the poor quality of a product manufactured by a venerable company like Bulova. The knob to set the time is very small and in an awkward location, making it very difficult to turn the multiple times necessary to set the correct time. Several of the parts are made of very thin, cheap plastic, which I expect to break after a very minimal amount of use. NOT a quality product.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by Solveig Alarm not long or loud enough.
I was disappointed in this product. I am hard of hearing and needed something other than a soft digital alarm for when I travel. This alarm failed to wake me (if indeed it went off at all.) It also slows down 5 to 10 minutes every day. When I test the alarm fully wound up, it rings for only 10 to 15 seconds and quite softly before stopping. I can't depend on it and will not take it with me when I travel.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by bomma Love this little clock!
I needed a bedside clock with an alarm, and this is the answer. My cell phone is too complicated to turn off the alarm quickly. This one is a nice size, very attractive, works great.

My son was headed to college in an area known for power outages. Normally he relies on his cell phone as his alarm but needed a decent backup. We looked everywhere for a windup, then my husband suggested the Vermont Country Store. This clock is just like the one I used in high school. My son likes it so much that it's now his primary alarm and his phone is the backup!

Dreadful. The wind-up is supposed to last 30 hours but mine only lasts for 6-10 hours & sometimes the wind-up
mechanism doesn't turn very far. I will be sending it back. I always trusted the Bulova name & Vt c. Store, now not so much. Doesn't even rate 1 star.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by pattygirl It works!
I was surprised and delighted with how well this clock
works. It keeps time if kept wound. It has an
alarm that is awakening without being alarming. I am glad to have a product which does what it is meant to do.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Verified Reviewer Wind-up key too hard to hold and twist
If you have arthritis or fat fingers, the design of the wind-up key makes it impossible to use. It's toooo little and you cannot grab it and turn it very easily. Also, the sound of the alarm is not that loud if you are hard of hearing.
I had one of these when I was younger and loved it -- times change!
