Today's offering features a really cool Technos alarm watch from circa the 1960's. It's striking black dial and large alarm crowns give it a great vintage-come-modern look. As lifestyle paces moved faster and faster, Swiss firms needed a way to enhance the experiences of their now frequently traveling top clients and to help him better organize and govern his most precious possession - his time. Watches like this Technos featured a fully mechanical alarm system with significant inner alarm gearing and even an additional stem and crown, making elements of second movement that worked seamlessly in conjunction with the normal timing portion. Because of the complexity of alarm movements many Swiss manufacturer, like Technos in this watch, used a movement based on an A. Schild caliber. It's the same caliber used by Heuer and Girard Perregaux in their alarm watches, along with many others. We've included a photo of a Heuer alarm watch we sold with this movement in the photo section below. It is in excellent condition and running very well.
