    New arrival, circa 1958, and a new python strap:

    I have a 'thang' for alarm watches, own a few of them, but this one sounds the most like a ringing bell, which I think is very cool :cool: !

    My python strap was too tight
    I couldn't get it off last night
    Time went by and now it's July
    I finally got it off and my girlfriend cried

    I'm wearing a Buren Imperial with a Venus 170 inside on a crocodile strap:

    I know it's not very glamorous, but this Oris has the nicest blue dial and a super smooth crown wind. Williams F1.jpg

    You're the first!

    No, I don't know the reference, but I believe it's from the first generation of Girard-Perregaux alarm watches.

    You'll find a few right now on the bay in not quite as good a condition, but close. And @DTMwatch has a later generation one (reference 8999) in great condition for sale on another forum. Send him a PM here.

    I almost bought his, but then opted for this older one with the blue alarm numerals...

    Trying the 289 on a vintage strap. I like the look as a change.

    Nice!

    Well... I think I'm on a bit of a better-half-imposed moratorium on watch purchases for the near future anyways, based on my acquisition history over the last few months, so maybe I shouldn't even look at eBay/other forums. I agree that the blue alarm numerals are stellar - maybe by the time you get sick of yours (if ever) I'll be back in the watch buying good graces. But then again I may just take a look around anyways...:rolleyes:
