    Nice! Obviously with Adolf Schild Cal. AS 1475 or AS 1930 (for the 1475, the alarm is activated by pushing the crown at 2:00 in, for the 1930, it is activated by pulling it out). Looks almost recent enough for a 1930..... - unless it turns out to be a Poljot 2612 (copy of the AS 1475)!

    Haha, you lost me at Nice! Are these 60's alarm watches desirable to collectors? I like the applied numbers on the face and that great red alarm indicator.

    Although the AS 1475 series (which includes the AS 1475, AS 1568, AS 1930 and AS 1931) total 1.4 million in production numbers, they are quite collectible. Of course, as far as wrist alarms go, they are among the most common so they don't rate particularly highly in that category. However, wrist alarms are special enough that almost all (except maybe those with pin lever movements such as Westclox and Ronda) are sought after. I particularly like the wavy alarm hand or those specimens with patterned dials.

    1.4 millions read like many. But compare it with the same number of Omega bumpers, 3.5 million Landerons or with zillions of simple movements. Finally all alarm watches are rarities compared with most others, and therefore are easier to sell than to buy.

    Was not a lot, but it took over 60 days to sell with Best offer?
    I have a lot of alarm watches, and was surprised, but it sold in time.
    Actually I sold two and both took about 50+ days

    Regards

    At an auction for between $300 and $500. Too much? That's estimates of course.
