Many of us need to have a reminder and an alarm clock when we are going to wake up in the morning. And therefore, we have alarm clock, and today you get them with radio and music in the shops, and there is nice that we have such a solution.

The clock is going 24 hours during a day and a night. And this duration is equal to the whole planet. What did really happen in time with these alarm clocks? The first American alarm clock was created in 1787 by Levi Hutchins in Concord, New Hampshire. This device he made only for himself however, and it only rang at 4 AM, in order to wake him for his job. The French inventor Antoine Redier was the first to patent an adjustable mechanical alarm clock, in 1847. Therefore, the alarm clocks have been in reality for a long time, and they are coming in new and modern versions from time to time and from place to place. So, loving the life, and being up before living life, or before going to work, is the function and the reason behind using the alarm clock. We can also sleep during a day, and we can wake up when the alarm clock is going, and we can then determine ourselves how long we will sleep, and when we will sleep!

But how did this really happen? After the invention of the alarm clock, there would be an introduction, a growth, and a maturity in the markets in according to the life cycle of the product. In the late 1870s, small alarm clocks gain popularity, and the major US clock companies started making them. The German clock companies followed them. It is essential to note that the predecessor of Westclox was founded in 1885 with a bright and improved method of small clock construction. Hence, we found the diffusion of the alarm clocks in the markets that were locomotives for the rest of the world. And the United States of America and Germany have also been strong economies, and they have shown the world the ways to go and to operate!

The alarm clock is a global idea, and it is sold in many markets through the world today. Where can I get a wind up alarm clock? You can buy a wind-up alarm clock in a clock shop, antique shop, or through an online vendor like Amazon. But you can just visit one or more than one companies from the country you are coming from, and therefore you get the alarm clock as you want, and maybe you will be satisfied with it, because you need enough options on it to have it. The alarm clock should be suitable for your life, and for your needs.

So, what is the logic of these alarm clocks? You can adjust the time to all the time zones, 24 of them, in the world. And we can live the life as we want with this alarm clocks, but they signal just which time you are within according to the placement of the Greenwich meridian. It was first established by Sir George Airy in 1851, and by 1884, over two-thirds of all ships and tonnage used it as the reference meridian on their charts and maps. Therefore, time is determined in relation how long you are from the Greenwich meridian from time to time. And the sun is shining in 15 degrees from the east to the west during a day, and therefore we have 24 different time zones in the world, and you get this number by taking 360 degrees and divide it by 15 degrees.

Where could you have this alarm clock? Some of them can be established at home, and some are portable, and they run on power or battery. So, when travelling nationally and internationally, you can bring you the alarm clock, and wake up when you want. And the alarm clock is just telling us how the time is during the day we are living!
