The Seiko Melodies in Motion Beatles Clockis a musical clock produced by the Seiko company that plays a number of Beatles songs upon each hour.

Details

The clock is one of the most popular models in the Seiko Melodies in Motion range. It features a mechanism with an opening face, whereby the lower half of the clock face drops down to reveal a revolving decorative wheel and flashing LED lights.

This mechanism is activated each hour, and coincides with the clock playing a version of a popular Beatles song.

The songs featured on the clock are:

  • Yesterday
  • Hey Jude
  • The Long and Winding Road
  • Let It Be
  • Imagine

In addition, it also features the melodies of two popular Japanese songs: ‘Kawano Nagarenoyouni’, and ‘Miagetegoran Yoruno Hosio’.

The clock has been discontinued by Seiko, but is still available to purchase from some dealers. Brand new examples sell for around $400, whereas second-hand models in good working order are available for less than $200.
