The Polaris Mariner Memovox is powered by the in-house automatic caliber 956 with a power reserve of 45 hours, which debuted in 2008. When the alarm goes off, a hammer strikes a bronze bell. The diver’s watch with alarm function on a stainless-steel bracelet.
The mechanical wrist alarm clock has three crowns: the upper one sets the alarm; Turn the inner disc on the dial until the triangle points to the desired alarm time. The middle one is used to adjust the internal rotating bezel to measure time segments (a simplified chronograph function), and the lower one is used to set the time.
In addition to the Memovox, the Cricket is still up to date, as are numerous watch models with historical calibers. The mechanical clock with alarm function is not a relic of the past. It still exists today – the watch that reminds you of special dates and moments.

Tudor: Heritage Advisor
The Tudor Heritage Advisor is reminiscent of the alarm clock of the same name, which was first launched in 1957 and was manufactured until 1968. The automatic caliber Eta 2892 with Tudor’s module works inside the 42-millimeter titanium watch. If the alarm clock is active, the window shows “on” at nine o’clock; if it is not used, the carrier reads “off.” The setting is made via the crown at two o’clock. The disc at three o’clock shows whether enough energy is still available for the alarm function.
The Marine Alarme Musicale 5547 from Breguet combines the alarm function with a second-time zone. A ship’s bell appears below the twelve windows when the striking mechanism is activated. The alarm time is set at nine o’clock. The power reserve of the unique instrument can be read off at ten o’clock. The second time zone with an hour and minute hands are read off on a large sub-dial at three o’clock. A date window like the rolex datejust watch (นาฬิกา rolex datejust which is the term in Thai) is placed at six. The in-house automatic caliber 519F / 1 is responsible for all these functions. The 40-millimeter wrist alarm clock is available in titanium, white, and rose gold.
