Condition: Very nice original condition overall with minor honest wear consistent with age and use; solid stainless steel case remains thick and sharp with nice bevels; crisp caseback is clearly legible; gorgeous original matte black dial with attractive yellow Tritium lume and a minor scratch near the 12 o'clock marker; original Tritium hands with matching yellow patina; clean domed acrylic crystal

Other: It's no secret that we love vintage mechanical alarm watches and this rare Waltham from the 1960s is no exception. It combines a functioning alarm with military time to form a clean utilitarian design. The matte black dial with yellow Tritium lume is incredible (especially out in the sun). The black leather strap with contrast stitching perfectly compliments the dial and the red-arrow alarm indicator really pops. While the LeCoultre Memovox and Vulcain Cricket get the most attention, other rare and interesting alarm watches fly quietly under the radar (but not for long). Why follow the crowd anyways when you can get this super cool Waltham for less money?
