A Braun DN 40 electronic digital alarm clock by Dieter Rams and Dietrich Lubs, 1976

**Please scroll down for more pictures


Another wonderful Braun timepiece – the DN 40 was a precursor to Ludwig Littman's 1979 Visotronic model, having a single tier fluorescent display and rationally laid out controls - with convex switches, green alarm volume knob and sliding panel - at the rear.

It’s in excellent vintage used condition and fully working. It has only very minor surface signs of use consistent with decades of careful use – there are no deep scratches, cracks or signs of repair. 

Please note that the item’s functionality has been tested on the European mains electricity supply – others please check with an electrician local to you to confirm functionality. For example it may need a separate voltage converter for use in the USA, but these are cheaply available from retailers such as Amazon. The label states that the clock uses  220 V ~ /50 Hz. All vintage electrical items should be safety checked before use.

Payment and Postage

Paypal is accepted and I do not add a surcharge to cover their fees. UK buyers only may also pay by cheque or postal order. If it's a cheque, please allow 7 to 10 days for it to clear. In exceptional circumstances it may be possible for overseas customers to pay by another means such as bank transfer in GBP£ by prior arrangement.

All buyers please make contact within 3 days of auction. Payment is required within 7 days.


It has become necessary to offer only tracked forms of postage for high value items. This is because of the increasing number of instances of attempted fraud and I'm acting on unequivocal advice that I have received from eBay and Paypal. Please be assured that the postage options shown are calculated at cost, with a minimal handling fee to cover packaging materials for larger items. I always pack to a professional standard; please see my feedback page for customer testimonies. If you have any questions about any of this please contact me.

 

Non-payment

All non-paying bidders are, without exception, reported to eBay. This is not for the sake of being vindictive, but because eBay charges retrospective fees calculated on the actual sale price of items and this money needs to be retrieved. It's hard enough to make ends meet on here as it is! Thank you for your understanding. Please refer to eBay's policy on non-payment for more information, including its ramifications for the bidder.



Condition of items

Please note that, unless clearly stated otherwise, my listings are for vintage/antique items and therefore, by definition, are not going to be in the same condition you would expect from a brand new item. Please be assured that I always endeavour to offer the most accurate description possible of the item's condition and take multiple illustrative photographs.

 

Vintage electrical items

Vintage electrical items are sold in their original condition without electrical guarantee, so must always be safety checked by a qualified electrician (in the country of intended use) before use.

 

Returns

Returns are possible, if reported within 7 days and by prior arrangement, if a mistake has been made in the listing and the item is not as described, but for no other reason. I'm afraid that straightforward buyer's remorse does not qualify and that all return costs must be borne by the buyer.



Thanks very much for taking the time to read this. If there is anything I haven't covered please don't hesitate to contact me.

Best of luck bidding!
