Other: If you're anything like us, you fantasize about the good old days when a classic wrist alarm watch would remind you of daily tasks or even wake you up in the morning. While LeCoultre and Vulcain get all the praise, Bulova Wrist Alarm models fly quietly under the radar. Sometimes we actually prefer a great Bulova Wrist Alarm like this example from 1967 - Just look at the cool squiggly blued-steel alarm hand! Fortunately for you, this is one of the best examples of a Bulova Wrist Alarm that we've ever seen or had the privilege of offering. The handmade smooth calfskin strap perfectly matches the shade of yellow Tritium lume and comes installed on a vintage Bulova tang buckle to complete the watch. A simple turn of the bottom crown sets the alarm hand, while pulling out the crown engages the alarm to sound at that time.
