Alarm clocks with silent needle

by Yin on March 16, 2011

Are some of you sensitive towards the sound that the clock needle makes as each second ticks?

In the past, I have no issue with the clock needle making the “zerk, zerk, zerk…” sound as it denotes the passing of each second. But after I spent sometime staying in nature, in the silent of the night, the needle from my RM5 alarm clock was unbearable. Now that I am back as a city dweller, I still find the sound of the needle clicking away at the silence of the night or early the morning annoying.

So imagine my happiness when I discovered that cute looking alarm clocks that has the silent needles were sold in one of the night markets:

Above:  The green (Frog design) and red (Mickey Mouse) alarm clocks are the ones with the silent needles. The silver ones are the usual alarm clocks.

I love them because they are cute and cheap. To date, since I’ve discovered this stall about few months back, I’ve bought a total of the 5 cute cute alarm clocks from them. They charge me around RM12 and supply battery together. It started when I happened to pass the stall and wanted to buy a wrist watch to put in my room- the seller was recommending a few types of watches when I told her that basically I had to resort to wrist watch because I dislike the sound of the needle. I was then she introduced these alarm clocks to me….

Why I bought so many was because I had already given 3 away. Surprisingly, it’s hard to find them at any places. You can still buy those with the silent needles at about RM30 from the night market- but the designs are more boring.
