Here is a great looking mans Swiss made mechanical wind alarm watch that would date from the early 1970's or possibly even as old as the late 1960's. It has a great look to it with a large steel case with dark gold plated finish and is in very nice overall condition. It shows the usual wear as to be expected with a watch dating around 40-50 years of age, but certainly hasn't been abused. The dial is a champagne color with raised gold hour markers with black accents and framed calendar window. The hands are gold with black accents and lumed centers with a bright orange sweep seconds hand and a gold alarm hand with orange arrow tip. Each hour position still has its original luminous dot and it is signed as "Emilia De Luxe, 17 Jewels, Incabloc, Swiss made". The top crown winds, sets, and arms the alarm section, while the lower crown winds and sets the movement. The case back is all properly signed and is a stainless steel screw-down type with specially cut holes that act as a drum resonator to increase the volume. Under this is the steel protector to keep the movement dry and clean - and it has worked - as the high grade Swiss movement has just been inspected and oiled and is keeping excellent time. Of course - the most important thing here is what our description says in the title - and when we say this one is loud - we aren't kidding. After many years, and after hearing all types of mechanical alarm watches - we have seen [and heard] designs developed to increase the volume - with the obvious winner in most cases being the Vulcain "Cricket" brand - BUT - here we have a new winner, and it seems as though there are some similarities used in common here between the two - but this one wins hands down. This one is LOUD! It has a good length as well, and the sound from this one has simply got to be heard. We are pretty much willing to guarantee that it will wake just about anyone from a deep sleep, or even bring a Zombie back to life. The gold plated steel bracelet has a folding/locking clasp and should accommodate up to an 8 inch wrist. It measures 36mm across without the crowns and 41mm from top to bottom. No matter what the reason - this is a nice looking, and very loud, alarm watch suitable for any purpose. Some buy them as they are an easy to understand and use alarm for either Mom & Dad - or Grandma or Grandpa - when it comes time to take their medication without having to figure out a complicated new electronic type. Don't miss this beauty. Whatever your reason for wanting an alarm watch - you won't find a louder one than this. 

 

TIMESHOPPE POLICY – YOU MUST READ – THANKS!

1/  We try our utmost for a perfect transaction every”time” by giving as accurate as possible descriptions, lots of large and clear photos, a good product at a great price, and make no profit at all on shipping, - and we get your product to you as fast as we ourselves would like to receive it.

2/ Please take careful note of the mailing cost marked on your package when you receive it, and you will find that we always lose money on shipping. We cover the extra insurance ourselves, as well as the Taxes charged by Canada Post, and a 'hidden' fuel surcharge, but absorb these costs as we don't feel right about increasing the already ridiculous fees that Canada Post demands from us - even though their International delivery is now handled by EMS, with courier like service - so it is super fast, insured, and traceable.

3/ If you are not 100% happy for any reason, please let us know via e-mail BEFORE leaving any feedback or poor DSR ratings, and we will work to make it right...no matter what it takes.

4/ If you are new to ebay or have a rating of less than 5 feedbacks, or have been inactive for a lengthy period – OR – have left neutral or negative feedback in the last while you MUST contact us BEFORE  BIDDING/BUYING or your bid or transaction may be cancelled – null and void.

5/ Please note: We do not deal with “garage sale hagglers”. If we receive an email with a ridiculous offer because you think we got the watch for free – or plucked it from a “watch tree” in our backyard – we will NOT respond to you, and will forward your email to ebay, as this is against their policy [and ours].

6/ It takes sellers and buyers working together to make eBay a fun place to shop – with co-operation, communication, and understanding, ebay can be a great market-place full of terrific bargains and a super experience for all.

Import duties, taxes, and charges are the buyer's responsibility and are not included in the item price or shipping charges. Please check with your country's customs office prior to bidding/buying to determine what these additional costs may be, and be aware of any possible delivery delays due to this as well. Also please note that while your particular Country may be on our exclusion list as presented by eBay, -and in almost all cases this due to shipping limitations through Canada Post - [not allowing delivery by traceable and signed for post] - we may still be able to ship to you under some circumstances....so please inquire if in doubt. FURTHER - to our friends "across the Pond" in the UK - [and those in other locations where import Tax and Duties may be high], be aware that we CAN NOT legally reduce the value of your parcel or mark it as a gift.
