Refurbished Copal RD700 Flip-Radio-Alarmclock | EU version

SKU: FP568 Category:


This listing is for a very special and rare clock, the Copal flip-radio-alarmclock RD700. This one is branded as ‘Saehan’, which to my best guess is licensed out by Copal, also because this one is supposedly made or assembled in Korea as opposed to Japan.

I gave this clock a mild restoration, all contacts were cleaned with Deoxit, the inside and outside of the clock were cleaned and I replaced the cable and plug with brand new ones. The motor was of course cleaned and lubricated as well!

This clock is essentially in a good mechanical condition bar for the warped piece on top of it, it appears that someone, at some time, put something very hot on top of the clock, which has warped the top a bit. I have considered trying to improve on that but have decided against it for it would most likely make things worse instead of better. The warping has been reflected in the price.

The motor has been cleaned and lubricated, the cable and plug have been replaced, I decided not to replace the original bulb that illuminate the clock because it is in perfect shape and the original, vintage bulbs give out a much nicer light. This clock is running perfectly and will be sold with a 6 months mechanical warranty.

This clock needs 220v and 50hz to run, this means you can plug it in in Europe or Australia for example, but when you wish to use it in the US, you will need an expensive adapter, for the volts and the hertz, to be able to run it.

Dimensions: Width 29cm (11.4″) / Height 10cm (4″) / Depth 20cm (8″)
