About the Designer
Braun Design Team
In the 1920's Braun started as a small engineering shop and by the 1960's had become an internationally renowned brand for small electrical appliances – a development driven by technical innovation, long-lasting quality and outstanding design. Today, nearly 90 years after its inception, Braun is part of P&G, the largest consumer goods products company in the world. Beginnings Advertisement In 1921, engineer Max Braun established his company in Frankfurt am Main, first making radio parts and by 1929 complete power amplifiers and radio sets. Max Braun was one of the first manufacturers in Europe to combine radios and record players in a single unit. The Braun logo with the distinctive raised and rounded “A” in the middle was born in 1934. During World War II, Braun was compelled to more or less abandon products for the civilian sector, and in 1944, the Frankfurt factories were nearly entirely destroyed. With 150 employees, Max Braun began rebuilding his company in 1945. 1950 saw the launch of the first electric shaver, the “S 50”, combining an oscillating cutter block with an ultra-thin yet stable steel foil clamped above it. This principle – in further refined and perfected form – is employed in Braun shavers up to the present day. Max Braun died suddenly in November 1951. His sons Artur (26) and Erwin (30) had to take over company management from one day to the next

I use this clock as my main source of time, for setting my watch on my way out the door, and keeping the kitchen clocks on the stove and microwave in step. It is glossy black, and looks very elegant and modern. The only reason that I docked it one star is because it has no backlight feature, which makes it impossible to read when the lights go down. Otherwise, it's an excellent addition to the home.
