LeJour Remind-O-Date Alarm ref. 2184 HW


Brand: LeJour

Model: Remind-O-Date Alarm ref. 2184 HW; Swiss Made circa 1960s

Case: Solid stainless steel case with two-piece screw-down back is approximately 34mm excluding the original matching oversized crowns; top crown winds/sets the alarm function and bottom crown winds/sets the watch

Strap: Vintage new old stock (NOS) 11/16" (~18mm) navy blue Norwegian calfskin strap with matching stitching and polished stainless steel tang buckle

Movement: AS cal. 1568 manual-winding movement (17 jewels) with functioning mechanical alarm and date display at 3 o'clock; 18,000 BPH; Swiss Made

Features: Stunning original silver sunburst dial with funky Arabic numerals at 6 and 12 o'clock; original handset; functioning mechanical alarm with cool blue-arrow alarm indicator hand; date display at 3 o'clock; dual-matching original oversized crowns (top crown winds/sets the alarm function and bottom crown winds/sets the watch); solid stainless steel "waterproof" case design; domed acrylic crystal

Condition: Fantastic original condition overall with minor wear consistent with age and use; solid stainless steel case is thick and sharp with the original edges and bevels in tact; crisp caseback is clearly legible with the original brushed finish still visible; gorgeous original silver sunburst dial with all Tritium lume plots present; original Tritium hands with matching patina; a few minor superficial scratches on the domed acrylic crystal

Other: It's no secret that we love vintage mechanical alarm watches and this rare LeJour Remind-O-Date is no exception. It combines a functioning alarm with a date display at 3 o'clock to form a clean and minimal design aesthetic. The silver sunburst dial is absolutely incredible and the navy calfskin strap perfectly compliments the blue-arrow alarm indicator hand. While the LeCoultre Memovox and Vulcain Cricket get all the praise, other super cool alarms such as this LeJour Remind-O-Date fly quietly under the radar (but not for long).
