1960 Westclox wristwatch Alarm, sold as "Watchlarm" Rare!!
retailed at 16.95 with the leather strap, this had a original looking leather speidel strap in good condition which I removed to save.
W5 movement, 0 Jewel. Seems to keep good time and the alarm rings for about 8 seconds!
The on/off switch is actually a slider piece on the side of the case with "on" engraved into the case (when "on" is showing the alarm is armed)
The pusher above the very good and sharp feeling crown is a 15 minute quick adjuster for the alarm. Otherwise, once the hour marker hits the alarm hand position it catches the gear and turns the alarm hand with the hour hand.
This doesn't look like it was used at all!! I have yet to see another Westclox wrist alarm, in good condition,working!
