Description
Veglia alarm clock made in Italy. Round clock with pale yellow dial and Arabic numerals. There are only 2 hands - hour hand and minute hand. Just below the '12' marker is a dial marked 1 ~ 12 with a pointer. This is the alarm setting dial. Below the pointer is an arrow indicating counter-clockwise turning of the hand. On the reverse, are 2 winding keys - one for the clock and one for the alarm. There is a knurled turning knob for the alarm setting. The other knob (for turning the hands) appears to be missing. The clock is supported by 2 legs on the front and one at the back. There is a bail on top to facilitate carrying of the clock. On the left of the clock on the top is a slider with 2 options - "Silent" and "Alarm". On the right of the clock on the top is a slider with 2 options - "Repeat" and "Steady".
