Other: You're not a true "WIS" until you have a mechanical alarm watch in your rotation... While LeCoultre and Vulcain typically get all the praise, these fantastic Bulova Wrist Alarm models fly quietly under the radar at a very affordable price point - Just look at the cool blued-steel alarm hand with red-arrow tip on this early execution from 1958! A simple turn of the bottom crown sets the alarm hand while pulling out the crown engages the alarm to sound at that time. The vintage strap compliments the unique patinated dial on this gorgeous one-of-a-kind example, which is sure to be a conversation piece.
