Default Wanted.. old time switch with spring reserve

Afternoon,
I have a interest in time switches, I am looking for a mains driven unit but must have a spring reserve to ride out power cuts. I have a Horstmann so I am now looking for other brands please.
If you have something please get in touch.
Thanks
Rob

Thanks for the link, but I only tend to buy within the UK.
Cheers

Until we are told otherwise it is in Europe as we are, easy really. I have never had a problem getting stuff from the EU, postage can be a wee bit more than expected but still quite reasonable.

I bought within the EU once, but never again, it was a nightmare when the item got lost and multiple couriers were involved.

No more discussion about the merits of buying stuff from other EU Member States please. It will inevitavbkly become political.

Sangamo Western used to make these. I used one with 7 day options to control the immersion heater in my first house. The ticking noise was irritating, as the tank was in the bedroom.

That is the type I am looking for, hope somebody may have one spare?
I had a similar situation as a kid, my parents in 1970 had the forerunner to Economy 7, it was just called 'off peak', and the night storage heaters were controlled by a ticking Sangamo on the meter board on the landing outside our bedrooms, but you didn't notice it after a little while.
