    Automatic with alarm for less than 2000?

    Is anyone aware of a decent automatic watch with an alarm function, that can be obtained for $2000.00 or less? I know that Jaegre LeCoultre makes one, for about ten times that much. What else is available?

    Your gonna have to increase your budjet to around 5K. Look for watches that used the AS 5008. Such as Maurice Lacroix, Auguste Reymond, Eterna, and RGM or your're gonna have to go vintage.

    I was afraid that it might be unrealistic. I would be prepared to consider a used one. I am definitely not a "quartz movement" sort of fellow. I might consider a manual.

    What springs to mind in terms of manuals with alarm, or perhaps used automatics?

    Aviator, Buran and Poljot, all well within budjet. Pre-own autos, check the
    vintage websites.

    Chronomaster has an Eterna with the aforementioned A Schild movement for about £1200.

    Try ebay and search for AS 5008.

    That eterna is a nice watch. I just can't justify paying that amount just to get an alarm, though. I might have to focus on a nice automatic, and a nice manual with an alarm.

    Any further guidance on the manuals with alarms would be appreciated.

    Searching on ebay didn't reveal much right now. Most of it was not beautiful, and all of it out of my price range.
