In the early part of the 20th Century, alarm clock manufacturers introduced several innovations to the market - portable (travel) clocks recognised the rise in travelling longer-distances and radio alarm clocks meant that people could wake to music rather than just a bell. The Second World War saw alarm clock manufacturing facilities repurposed for war-related production, but as workers still needed to get up on time, some alarm clocks were still made. Though only limited numbers were initially produced, as the war (and time) marched on, demand grew as old clocks began to break. The government recognised this and some factories recommenced production in 1944 and, as a result, alarm clocks were one of the first consumer products to develop and implement what came to be known as post-war designs.
