This Cosmo Clock brand Eames Era digital alarm clock is also a reading / desk lamp. The Cosmo 5500 is a chunky geometric Space Age cube-shaped clock that converts into a light when the hood is pulled up. A chrome metal hinge arm allows the lamp to be adjusted in various positions. The lamp has a High-Low-Off switch, but also has a button built into the base that automatically turns the light off when shut. The clock keeps perfect time, the alarm works, too, and has a classic beeping buzztone. However, the display blinks in conjunction with the seconds count. It looks like it is permenently stuck in “set” mode. The setting buttons are on the rear, and there is also a switch that locks and unlocks the controls. I would assume that switching it to locked position would cease the blinking on the display, but it doesn’t. It does lock the controls, and it cannot be set in the locked position, but it just keeps blinking as it keeps perfect time. The other flaw is that the top of the white plastic outer shell has yellowed with age (you can find instructions on the internet with a recipe of household chemicals that can be used to turn yellowed vintage plastics white again). Entire unit measures 6 inches x 4.75 inches x 4.25 inches.
