For years I have loved the simple and beautiful design of flip clocks. I have been on the hunt for a vintage, working, good condition one for years. I know you can find them online but I really wanted to find one for myself. Today, at an ARC Thrift Store, I finally found it. It is a 1970's Copal Model 227. It is small, elegant, in almost new condition, and works like a champ...and I payed $3 for it.
It immediately gained a place on my desk and I freakin' love this thing.
