When you create such wonderful products as you do, I'm sure you must get many kudos quite frequently. Nonetheless, if you were to imagine a small house on a little lake nestled in the Catskill Mountains, and as you peered into the open living room past a comfortably resting family spread out on their sofa, you will find a Zen Timepiece above the crackling fire atop the grand place, truly the centerpiece of our home.
A person can certainly get lost in the tranquility your products bring. Thank You.

I have had one of your clocks for years, dropped it and broke it, and now need a new one since I can't imagine waking up to anything else.

“I love my Zen Alarm Clock. If you can get past the new-age marketing, it's great. It's the first alarm I've ever had that doesn't startle me awake, and also the first that I can manage to set accurately with no frustration, even when I'm exhausted. The cost is definitely high— around $100— but it's the only clock I've ever had that hasn't made me violent. As a night owl with an early morning job, I've tried a lot. My favorite thing about it is that it automatically snoozes. It chimes ONCE at the time you set, then shuts the hell up for a few minutes before chiming again. It continues this cycle with shorter silences in between each chime, and doesn't get annoying for 7 or 8 minutes— enough time for me to regain consciousness. The amount of love I have for this clock frightens me. I'll stop rambling now.”

Take a look at the Zen Alarm Clock from Now & Zen. It's a simple, silent, analog-faced clock with a progressive TUNED REAL METAL chime and no snooze button. It produces a sweet sustained note with each chime. It's never failed to wake me up happy in fifteen years.
It's expensive, but it's totally reliable and actually pleasant to wake up to.

The Digital Zen Clock I ordered through your Web Site arrived this week and I couldn't be more pleased. The craftsmanship is impeccable, the chime is music to my ears, and the countdown timer is the perfect tool for meditation. The alarm is the perfect way to wake up in the morning. No more jarring radio static to start the day. I love waking up to the gentle chime sequence expertly programmed in your fine instrument. Thank you for such an awesome product, and best of luck.

I was given one of those Zen Alarm Clocks with the Fibonacci cycle of natural, tuned chimes (made by the same people who make the non-digital one in rob511's first link). Yes, they're $90.00, but the alarm is almost painless to wake to, and impossible to sleep through. The sound it makes is pleasing to the ear and does not promote startle reflexes or nightmares. It permits the tiny abrogations of responsibility that are the magic of snooze buttons, but without pushing any buttons. And the snooze period gets shorter and shorter until I find I am just... awake! It also lives inside a beautiful wooden box, so that I never need to see the numbers on the clock, and it has a little nautilus on the off button. I like him — he's curly and reminiscent of the alarm progression. It's only been a month, but I think this is my answer to my years-long search for a better way to wake up.
