LED clock needed

I have been looking for an item for months and not had any luck. Thought I would run this by you folks.

My wife and I would like a small, battery-powered, LED clock we can mount in our berth. When we are on passage, sometimes you wake up not knowing what time it is, and if you should go ahead and get up to take your watch, or if you still have an hour to go back to sleep. Glancing up to a clock would be really nice instead of groping around for the watch or iPhone we are using now.

A clock that displays the time without having to hit a button to light up is preferable to keep from that "groping around" I mentioned earlier.

These things used to be available at every K-Mart and Radio Shack back in the 70's, but I can't find one today. What do you folks use?

Cheers!

Steve

Re: LED clock needed

I have a number of these small digital battery powered clocks with alarms.... They are about 1 1/2" tall x 3" wide and 1/2" thick (guess) and use something like an LR44 battery.

I have them mounted in the cockpit, on the clg of the aft cabin... and so on..

Re: LED clock needed

Well, we were thinking of something smaller, that could be mounted on a bulkhead. It's got some of the features, though. Thanks!

This is close. Where did you buy these?
