Swiss watches would give their rotating bezels to be as solid and jewel-like as this tiny media player. There’s also something about the way the pivoting screen clicks when you press your way through the menus. And it has a clock.

Sensibly minimalist controls, a super-sharp LCD, FM radio and great sound quality all culminate to make this a winner. With a stonkingly generous 34-hour battery life and a substantial 2GB capacity, this is worth every penny.

Using such an excellent MP3 player that’s not an iPod will also give you a nice warm glow, to boot.

A gorgeous player with controls that can compete with the Nano’s but at a price tag that can’t.
