    Analarm vibrating watch wakes you, not your spouse (or neighbors)

    I thought this was pretty cool.

    The coolest alarm watch I ever saw was worn by James Coburn as Derek Flint in "Our Man Flint" and "In Like Flint". It had a crown shaped like a " T ". The T would pop out and rock back and forth such that the arms (top of T) would press against the forearm waking him up.

    I prefer it so that my wife wakes up before me. So my cup of tea is ready when I come down to the kitchen!!

    Wow.........underwhelmed. NOT!!!!!!!
    This old thing huh? Absolutely gorgeous.

    There are some G-Shocks that vibrate. I think they are older models at least here in the States because I can't seem to find one in the current lineup.

    The GW-400J G-Shock is currently available. I'm in the UK so I don't know if it's available in the US, but I can recommend some Japanese shippers whom the G-Shock forum all trust.

    Such as this one:
    SeiyaJapan | Grand Seiko | G-Shock | Seiko Spirit | Prospex | Marinemaster | Citizen | CASIO G shock Silencer GW-400J-1JF Japan Made



    The G-7510 is another one:

    The Search function on vBulletin forums isn't very smart. If you want to search for a complete string in the G-Shock forum, or for posts which include multiple words, use Google, and enter site:forums.watchuseek.com/f17 into the search box. Then use normal google syntax after that to enter your search.

    Here is few shots of the Memovox's alarm in action,


    First you can see the "hammer" sitting still

    Reminds me of the watch that Queen Elizabeth I of England wore. It was mounted in a ring (presumably a rather large ring) and when the alarm was triggered, a tiny needle tapped against her finger.

    My Poljot alarm watches vibrate somewhat, and can wake me without disturbing Mrs Chascomm:


    Her Poljot however is a 1995 model with the 2-piece back and tunable anvil:

    That one has quite a fierce buzz.


    Those 'Flint' movies were a lot of fun.
