As mid-century approached and lifestyle paces moved faster and faster, top 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 - their time. It is rumoured that car parking tickets where a major factor in the rise of alarm wrist watches sold. Car owners were likely to forget when the car parking ticket time ran out and there were no easy "alarms" back then. In response to this need the engineers at some top brands including Girard Perregaux created an alarm wristwatch in 1950s.

To pull off this difficult task, Girard Perregaux equipped these watches 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. It was quite an achievement to do this back in the 1950's.

Please be advised vintage watches are smaller than today's standard's so ensure you are comfortable with the case size which is approx 34.5mm which is modelled on a 6.5 inch.
