    It's perfectly suited for darkroom work. A big clearly visible wallclock (30 cm). All safe red leds, and it counts the seconds. Ideal for developing films, in group darkrooms and even in a smaller darkroom. I got it online at Conrad. It's called "Orium". If someone is interested, dont wait too long. You never know how long a product will be on the market these days.

    In terms of a perfect darkroom clock, I don't think you can beat a JUNGHANS. I have 2 of these in my darkroom. They are the metronome of clocks.

    Yes, I have a one of them, and durst coltims too. But they can be used by only one person at a time. I teach darkroom courses, and with this clock several persons can use it at the same time for different purposes. And when working under safelights this clock is a lot more visible.

    I got it here : http://www.conradpro.fr/ Conrad is based in Germany but ships internationally.

    The clock isn't made by Conrad though. Just by searching for "clock red leds" I found several similar ones on amazon under different brands.

    How can a single clock used by several darkroom workers at the same time?

    And when it's time to load or unload panchromatic film?
