Nortronic Co appears to be Norwegian .
Specializing in components and some electronic products, torque wrench etc.
That board appears to be part of a timer?

The Telex number kinda dates it back to at least the 70s... Those kind of advertising gimmicks used to be desk decorations.

They are based in Crewe, and the dialling code on the clock is the dialling code for Crewe.
I can say for certain that it dates from before 16th April 1995, because that is when the 1 forming the second digit of the area code was added: 0270 became 01270.

I concur with the comments above. This was not intended to be a consumer product. It is for promotional purposes for the customer, Nortronic.

It uses a General Instruments CK3400 digital alarm clock IC from the 1970's. I can post a link to the entire GI 1977 Databook.
