Hands down- flip/ roll clocks are the coolest clocks in the known universe and in all probability beyond. It's hard to find one in the perfect retro design though, but this 1970s Sankyo seems to fit the bill brilliantly. The downside is that unlike many clocks from the latter part of the 20th century, these aren't nearly as cheap as you'd hope.

 This one, on Etsy has a price of £85 which is priced competatively with contemporary clocks that use the same technology. In fact looking around online most new ones seem to be orange too. Finally, people with taste!
