Reginald Jeeves Infallibly Polite Speaking Alarm Clock.

This is the alarm clock that faithfully reproduces the subtle wit employed by P. G. Wodehouse's most famous character--the valet Reginald Jeeves--as he politely affirms the beginning of the day. The clock plays 126 different wake-up messages in the reserved voice of Stephen Fry, the original actor from the English comedy Jeeves and Wooster.

When the alarm sounds, Jeeves speaks softly as he assuages your displeasure that the morning has indeed come: "Excuse me sir, I'm so sorry to disturb you, but it appears to be morning... Very inconvenient, I agree... I believe it is the rotation of the Earth that is to blame, sir," or asks "Shall I inform the news agencies that you are about to rise, sir?"

If you are not roused sufficiently, a series of beeps will ensue; a press of the clock's rosette cancels the beeps, prompting Jeeves to interject "Sir has a firm touch, but fair," as one of ten possible snooze replies. A press of the rosette at bed time initiates a three-minute relaxation message with ambient music. Made of wood and handpainted in a subdued lacquer.
