Notes EE: Sony Digimatic 8FC-59W ist ein sehr frühes Modell mit Klappziffern-Anzeige (Fallblatt-Zeitanzeige). 8FC-59W hat 8 Transistoren und 8 Dioden. Digitalanzeigen baut man später in Solid-State-Technik, statt mit Mechanik, wobei sich verschiedene Techniken abwechselten, doch die 70er Jahre sind von diesen mechanischen Anzeigen geprägt, wo nicht eine normale Uhr vorgezogen wurde.

The Sony Digimatic 8FC-59W is one of the first alarm clock radios with "Flip-Mechanisme", "Folding Numbers" or "Drop Sheet Time Indicator". In 1965 "Cifra 3" with the same system was used as a simple flip-clock, built in Italy - but there are also probably earlier clocks since the system as such was already used many years before.
