Westclox Magic Touch Foldable Travel Alarm Clock Image ID 047: All rights reserved, Bordloub

My mid-1960s folding travel alarm clock Westclox, the “Magic Touch,” because all you had to do to stop the alarm clock ringing was to touch the top of the case. This type of clock is also called “Calotte” or “Portfolio”: “The outer case usually made of leather is the Portfolio, and the timepiece and its metal case, the Calotte.” (De Carle, 1983).
