    I really like alarm watches. I think they appeal to some childish part of me - the one that likes surprises like jack-in-the-box toys or wind up trucks that lurch and move in crazy circles or those cheezy joy buzzers that used to be advertised in the back of comic books.

    I also love finding a vintage watch that looks unworn. I bought this one some time back but put it aside. This morning while going over the ticking inventory trying to decide on today's watch I remembered this early 1970's Wakmann. I wondered why I put this immaculate old thing aside until I looked at my wristie - the chapter ring/crystal retaining ring was put in slightly skewed. I didn't notice that little "feature" when I bought it. I didn't see it until I photographed it the first time. I've been intending to take it to my watchmaker but had buried it so deep in the sock drawer I forgot about it until today. Funny how my photos show thing my eyes miss...

    Anyway, it's funky, clunky and kind of junky:

    New arrival! ::psy:: Sinn EZM1 :D
    This watch appeals to the "contrarian" side of me: Throwing away four Lemania 5100 features to get one (central chrono minute hand), crown/pushers at 9:00, and count down vs. count up bezel. Call me a crazy, but I just think that's cool!

    Note how the non-critical red date disappears in the shadow. Yes! :thumbsup:
