Modern retro: A digital rotary telephone for the 21st century


Say hello to the SagemCom Sixty – an old-school rotary telephone with a modern twist. The biggest difference is probably the digital display – no more waiting for the dial to spin back as you’re dialling.

The body of the phone is also gone, making it smaller and lighter, and the cable cord has been removed. It only comes in orange for some reason, but it’s pretty funky. Ten hours of talk time comes with, and it can also store 20 minutes of answer messages.

The new SagemCom Sixty is a pure reinterpretation from the old rotary phones, which were once very popular in the UK from their introduction in the 1930s.

The phone retails at £99.99 – available at John Lewis and elsewhere.





  • Say you have a website that generates revenue through Google ads, even one with age verification or whatever in place. If someday Google deems your content indecent, they just block you. Meaning you can’t sell adspace through Google anymore. And given the number of ad platforms that Google killed or swallowed on it’s way to global domination, that leaves you with precious little alternatives.
