..........to find a small, round, battery powered, digital clock to stick on the dashboard of my van?

Just about impossible so far.

I want something 2" in diameter, or smaller, mostly black and preferably under £10.

There's one on Amazon, it has two reviews that both say it's useless/worthless/ broke inside a week.

Best I can find so far would have to come from the USA for nearly £14.00 with postage.

Surely something like this must be available somewhere in the UK, no bells or whistles required, the plainer the better.

Fleabay, yes, I've had a good look, hadn't thought of Argos - I'll be off over there right now.

My monitor is square so a job to say :lol: is it really that important.

If you go to a scrap yard/breaker you'd probably find one in a dashboard for peanuts

Anyways what it costs you could always make a custom case.

2) did not work for long
