Other: It's no secret that we love vintage mechanical alarm watches and this superb 1960s Helbros Alarm Calendar is no exception. It combines a functioning mechanical alarm with a date display at 3 o'clock to form a clean and minimal design aesthetic. The beautiful silver sunburst dial is really striking and the vintage NOS black strap compliments the overall classic '60s look. While the LeCoultre Memovox and Vulcain Cricket continue to get most of the praise, other super cool wrist alarms such as this rare Helbros 79922 fly quietly under the radar at very affordable price points.
