Features: Stunning original silver sunburst dial with mirror track and oversized Arabic numerals at 3, 6, 9, and 12 o'clock; rare dial variation with red, white, and blue insignia; original Tritium hands with nice yellow patina; original center sweeping-seconds hand; functioning mechanical alarm with original red-arrow alarm indicator hand; dual-matching original signed crowns (top crown winds and sets the alarm and bottom crown winds and sets the watch); solid stainless steel case with domed acrylic crystal

Condition: Very nice original condition overall with minor honest wear consistent with age and use; solid stainless steel case is thick and sharp and appears to be completely unpolished; crisp caseback remains clearly legible; original silver sunburst dial with all Tritium lume plots present and aged to a dark yellow hue; original Tritium hands with all luminous material in tact and matching; clean domed acrylic crystal

Other: It's no secret that we love vintage mechanical alarm watches and this beautiful 1960s Benrus Wrist Alarm is no exception. The unique silver sunburst dial with mirror track and elongated Arabic numerals is absolutely gorgeous (especially out in the sun). It exhibits just the right pop of color with the red/white/blue insignia and red-arrow alarm indicator hand, and the vintage strap compliments the watch perfectly. While the LeCoultre Memovox and Vulcain Cricket get all the praise, other super cool and affordable alarms fly quietly under the radar (but not for long).
