Time announcement now under 0900 number

It has already been discontinued in France and is still popular in Switzerland. We are talking about the automatic time announcement. However, this can now be reached under a 0900 number.


Yes, the talking clock that gives the exact time over the phone still exists. However, it is now a 0900 number.

In the past, if you typed 161 into the phone, a voice would ring out on the other end. “On the next beep it’s…” she said, delivering the exact hour, minute, and second of the time.

You can still hear it, you just have to dial 0900 161 161 since the beginning of the year. The speaking clock has almost cult status in Switzerland – it has been around for more than 80 years. Not so in neighboring France: the service was discontinued there last summer.
