This classic travel alarm clock from the 80s from Casio is hard-wired to a unbranded joystick which controls its funtionallities. Although there is no brand on the joystick, the shape of the stick is the same as the ones manufactured by spanish company MHT Ingenieros in the 90ies, precicsely the Zero-Zero Winner model. Alarm and time can be set up moving the joystick. This is the first Hard-wired device I built back in 2003 and It was not untill 2010 that I realised that the stick and the base are not build correctly, buttons should be facing the front side.
