Our manufacturing process
We assemble all our clocks in our own workshop in Stockholm. Our clocks are dressed in leather by selected saddlemakers in Southern Sweden. Parts and components are manufactured in Asia by professional clockmakers. Each part is unique and exclusively produced for Båge & Söner.
In our table alarm clock, we use solid traceable brass, high quality PVD goldplated stainless steel 304 and stainless steel 304. Our clocks come in fine-brushed, polished and gold-plated stainless steel. All Båge & Söner alarm clocks are covered in vegetable tanned leather from Tärnsjö Tannery or italian leather of lamb nappa. We have made a conscious decision to use as many sustainable materials as possible that age and last well over time.
We only use premium leather from the Swedish Tärnsjö Tannery. The patina that this leather develops over time is unsurpassed and is a hallmark of the highest quality. The vegetable tanning process takes place without the use of chrome, which is the most environmentally friendly way to produce high-quality leather.
We use a Taiwanese clockwork mechanism that is one of the best in the world for alarm clocks.
Our clocks feature tempered mineral glass, whereas most alarm clock manufacturers use plastic glass.
No, our table alarm clock makes no ticking sound. It has a sweeping second movement with a crescendo alarm.
Yes, engrave your clock with a personal greeting to memorize the special moment. Max 25 characters (including spaces). Please count up to 8 working days for engraving & production before your clock is ready to be shipped. The engraving will be showing discretly on the front of the clock’s foot.
No returns accepted on an engraved clock.

Yes, the snooze function is activated by pressing the snooze button on the left-hand side of the clock.
Our clock has a crescendo alarm, which means that the alarm signal increases from a low to a high volume once the alarm goes off. The alarm has four volume levels. The highest level reaches 80 decibels at a distance of nine centimetres, which is considered very loud.
No, we use a sweep second movement, which does not make a ticking sound.

Under normal use, the battery lasts for about one year. Sometimes longer depending on how you use your clock.
Warranty and service
We provide a two-year product guarantee on our clocks that takes effect from the date of purchase.
A Båge & Söner alarm clock can always be repaired as we mount every clock by hand piece by piece according to the same methods used for exclusive wristwatches, which means we are able to dismantle the clock and repaire or exchange only the faulty part.
Stainless steel (and goldplated stainless steel) remains with the same lustre and shine over time. You can polish it carefully with a dry cloth when needed.
Brass is a living material that changes over time. You can polish the brass very carefully with a dry cloth with brass polish. Work across the surface until the polish is completely gone and the surface is shiny again. Be careful not to get polish on the leather, only use a small amount!
Tip: Use a gentle masking tape with mild adhesive effect in order to separate the materials, so that you do not get polish on the leather.
There are no specific care requirements for leather. It ages naturally over time and develops its own unique patina. Avoid letting your clock stand in direct sunlight.
