I bought this for my frequent traveling as I need an alarm and a bedside time piece. So my main need was for a clock to read with my small night torch before the sun rose. The clock is very well made and high quality but the face is a bit too small. Or perhaps I should say the hands are difficult to distinguish. The hour hand in particular is hard to decipher. Maybe this is a young person's clock.Those older than 50 need clearer hands.

Comments about National Geographic Travel Clock:

The setting wheels on the back of the clock are nearly impossible to turn to set the clock. It is attractive and seemed perfect as a gift for my husband, but I am returning it.

Charming, compact design, but difficult to set

By Design Plus Utility Lover

Pros

  • Attractive Design
  • Clear Display
  • Keeps Good Time
  • Reliable

Cons

  • Difficult to set alarm
  • Difficult to set time
  • Mechanism Exposed

Best Uses

  • Bedroom
  • Desk
  • Time Only Not Alarm

Comments about National Geographic Travel Clock:

This tiny travel/all-purpose clock is charming in appearance, but seems an anachronism in design. It is difficult to set either the time or alarm, with tiny wheels to turn, actually needing a small screw driver when fingernails fail, and exposes the mechanism, which catches dust and is unattractive. It seems to need modernization, like an easy way to set the time and alarm (both on and off). It is most attractive when closed, but not when in use.

    Comments about National Geographic Travel Clock:

    A travel clock that feels and looks like something you would have for a lifetime, but it failed after 3 years. When one unscrews the back you find the cheapest materials I have ever seen. The weight infers quality, but that simply misleads one to believe that you have acquired something of value. I expect Nat'l Geo. to sell more quality items than this.

            Bought this clock for travel. It stopped working after the first day. Returned it and received a replacement. The second one ran for several days before it stopped. Took the battery out and put it back in and it ran for a couple of days before stopping again.
