Other: It's no secret that we love vintage mechanical alarm watches and this rare 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 silver sunburst dial is really beautiful and the vintage brown leather strap perfectly compliments the red-arrow alarm indicator hand. While the LeCoultre Memovox and Vulcain Cricket get all the praise, other super cool and affordable alarms such as this Helbros 79922 fly quietly under the radar (but not for long). As an added bonus, this one comes with its original tag and inner and outer boxes.
