Memostar Alarm c.1970s

0.00

This Memostar Alarm is one of the later iterations of the Swiss alarm watches, bringing much of the 1970 decade's shapes and style in subtle and reasonable fashion. With a dial in shades of patterned blue, paired with the modest baton hands and contrasting orange alarm hand, this watch is a very nice quality specimen. The movement is based on the world's most commonly used alarm caliber, the A. Schild 1475; this later model has an increased beat rate of 21,600 beats per hour and includes a date indicator. The watch is keeping excellent time and all functions are in working order.

[All vintage watches are expected to function as described. However, due to age and generally unknown service history (unless otherwise stated), these watches may not keep time as accurately as new or quartz-style watches. This is completely normal and does not indicate that there is a major problem. Like your automobile, all mechanical watches will likely need to be serviced at some point in time. Please keep this in mind, as there is no guarantee regarding when these vintage watches may need standard maintenance. Every watch sold by Buying On Time is done so with the expectation that it is not currently in need of service or repair, unless noted. Transportation and shipping are, unfortunately, out of our hands -- but Buying On Time guarantees that all watches sold are accurately described and in the stated condition when they leave our hands.]
