    Even more alarming:rolleyes:. A few more have been added to the alarm section since my last post.

    A couple of not so common Jaegers which I couldn't resist. Cool little travel alarms..

    And this one, some enterprising young WIS decided to create a Bullhead Memovox:)

    Fortunately it can be taken back to original with very little fuss and no harm done.

    Curenntly my only alarm watch. Favourite watch of my kids :D
    Really nice size 36mm case, slim profile (compared to other memovox) due to manual wind and no date window. Whats not to like about it.
    The dial layout reminds me a lot of Philipp Dufour Simplicity. :whistling:

    Whenever I try and imagine my "dream collection" its hard for me to call it complete without one of the ~1960's era Memovoxes with the gleeful addition of the "Parking Symbol" on the dial. I guess it was a useful feature when people used to need to run out and feed the meter. Nowadays it just adds a charming pop of colour to the dial and a reminder of what life was like before there was an app for everything. I don't actually know much about them other than the fact that unscrupulous folks like to redial less valuable Memovoxes to resemble them. One of the big tells is to look at the size of the subdial. On legit parking dial watches it should be large and take up more than 3/4 of the total space whereas some of the fakes the inner dial only takes up half of the whole dial.

    If anyone here knows more I would love to hear what you know or take links to good sources of info. I WILL have one someday!

    Waltham Alarm, there are much I like about this watch - the ”military” dial, the dual crowns, the ring when the alarm goes of

    I've had a few alarm watches over the years, picked up this Vulcain GMT alarm watch six years ago off of another forum for a song. Massive 18k rose gold case, they didn't make many of these. A couple of years ago the winding crown snapped off and I put it away and basically forgot about it. Packed it up today and sent it off to be repaired and returned to service.

    Unique winding mechanism that charges the alarm power reserve, sets the alarm and starts your day with a touch of funkiness all by rotating the knurled bezel.

    I received this very cool vintage Citizen alarm watch recently. I love the bold hour markers and bluish-silver brushed dial.
