Saturday, March 16, 2013: Orange and black jump clock made in Germany by Peter.  This clock has “digital” printed on it but it’s really a wind-up clock with two rolling discs, one for the hours and one for the minutes. The alarm is a loud bell sound. Dimensions are approximately 9.5cm (4”) height with a width of 12cm (5”).  Weighs just under 280g.

I used to have a clock like this one but I lost it some years ago.
It was identical to this one.
I am trying to buy such a clock for ten years or so, but I have not found one yet. I want to buy one because I have lost the other one. The orange PETER clock was one of my favorite things because it reminded me of my childhood.
