Seiko Disaster Clock

Chinese and Taiwanese portable safety clocks have so far dominated the market with models that have all kind of functions you do (or do not) need when a big earthquake strikes again. Seiko pared down the features to just those it considered necessary, and came out with its Disaster Clock KR866N. The idea is not to hide it and bust it out only in an emergency, but to use it as a daily clock where it will be close-at-hand for when... disaster strikes! Color is awful, but the Disaster Clock is kind of stylish when compared with most other models. It has an alarm, flashlight, and a radio receiver. The batteries will last for 30 hours while using the flashlight continuously. It goes on sale for an affordable $45.
