The Båge & Söner Table Alarm Clock is an exclusive alarm clock, designed and assembled in Sweden, made of brass and upholstered in vegetable tanned premium leather from Sweden’s Tärnsjö Tannery.
A Båge & Söner alarm clock is an ideal blend of traditional craftsmanship and new technology.
Our alarm clocks are encased in premium genuine leather and assembled in Sweden with the same precise methods and techniques that distinguished watchmakers have been using for many years.
At the same time, we manufacture parts for the alarm clock using modern tools and machines, from digital CAD models to the 3D printing and CNC machining of the detailed parts; all with a precision of one thousandth of a millimetre.
A Båge & Söner alarm clock is built to last. If you need to repair your clock we can mend it in our workshop, in keeping with both the traditional methods of fine watchmaking and our commitment to sustainability.
Just like time, a Båge & Söner alarm clock never stops.
Our workshop – The place where everything happens
We design and assemble all Båge & Söner Table Alarm Clocks in our workshop in Stockholm. Inspired by ‘fine watchmaking’, we strive to make the world’s finest alarm clock, leaving nothing to chance, from the smallest screw to the leather that encloses the clock.
Every alarm clock that leaves our studio in Stockholm has been manufactured and assembled by hand with a lot of love and a great deal of craftsmanship.
A Båge & Söner alarm clock is quite simply a piece of craftmanship in the truest sense of the word.
Once the alarm starts to sound, activate the SNOOZE function with a gentle press on the snooze and light knob. The alarm will be interrupted for about four minutes.
The alarm repeats itself until the alarm is turned off permanently by turning the alarm switch to the left.
In dark conditions, press the snooze and light knob and the recessed light bulb will light up the dial.
Our alarm is a 4 step crescendo alarm with a classic beep-beep sound. It starts soft and slowly and increases in intensity and volume in 4 steps.
The snooze function is activated by pressing the snooze button on the left-hand side of the clock (same button to activate the light).
A Båge & Söner alarm clock comes in a timeless design made in high quality materials and is built to last. We select each part according to the highest quality standards; we use genuine brass, finest stainless steel, premium leather, and tempered mineral glass.
We want your Båge & Söner alarm clock to be a family heirloom that you and future generations can appreciate and take delight in.
Stainless steel is an alloy of chrome and nickel and is one of our most used and beloved metals. The main property of stainless steel is that it lasts over time with the same beautiful luster and shape.
We work with one of the purest kinds of stainless steel alloy and our clocks come in fine-brushed, polished and gold-plated steel.
Brass is an alloy of mainly zinc and copper, but it is the gold-like colour makes it unique. In Sweden, we have been making brass ornaments since the late 16th century.
In a Båge & Söner alarm clock, almost all the metal parts are made of brass of the highest quality.
For 150 years, Tärnsjö Tannery has turned animal hide into the finest leather. Tärnsjö Tannery is one of the few tanneries in the world using vegetable tanning, to produce leather with exceptional quality and minimal environmental impact.
That is why we use leather from Tärnsjö Tannery for our alarm clocks.
Dial and hands
The aesthetics and look of the dial of a Båge & Söner alarm clock are a crucial part of the manufacturing process. Each of the indices and numbers are applied by hand, while the hands are delicately designed and frame the hour and minute markings in a clear way.
The dial on a Båge & Söner alarm clock is beautifully decorated with different patterns. We use a geometric tapestry pattern in the alarm zone on the white and blue dial. On the green and rhodium-grey dial, a sunray pattern of almost imperceptible lines appears in the alarm zone, which, like the sun’s rays, intersect at the centre.
All Båge & Söner alarm clocks undergo our rigorous internal quality control process. We check the finish, the leather casing, the assembly, the mechanical precision, the alarm and the other functions.
As proof that your clock has undergone our quality control process, the accompanying manual is stamped and dated with our Båge & Söner seal.
