I listed this on Ebay...the clock doesn't work but the AM/SW radio does! It reminds me of a Philco Predicta. Auction ends April 12 at night

Is anything like this being reproduced by an original manufacturer (yet)?
So far, you can get vintage phones and Predicta TVs. . .what else? Maybe the market is too small?
In my kitchen is a c 1970 (?) Panasonic digital clock radio, with its white-on-black "flipcard" numerals frozen at 5:04 pm, the moment when the power went off shortly after the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake. It wouldn't start again, so it's a memorial. The black plastic box-shaped case has a crisp rectangular matte silver frame surrounding the full-face transparent front "lens." Rather sixties, actually. . .
