Revue Thommen Cricket Wrist Alarm

Mint condition Revue Thommen Cricket hand wound wrist alarm, with possibly the loudest mechanical alarm to be found. This watch has an ingenious and simple method of operation. It is advised that the instructions are read before using to prevent damage by pressing or pulling the wrong crowns, but in short the winding crown turned clockwise winds up the alarm mechanism. The crown wound anti clockwise winds up the watch mainspring for the time operation. The crown also sets the hands when pulled out to the first position. The alarm setting is operated by pressing the button at the 2 position, this releases the winding crown to a second position, which when turned, allows you to set the alarm indicator (the block tipped hand). When the desired time is selected, you press the crown back in. The alarm will then sound on cue and is loud enough to wake you up from sleep. To cut the alarm, simply press the button at 2. The back has a second cover with holes in the second cover, and is raised to allow for sound resonance.  Very clever internal design and acoustics make this the loudest mechanical alarm ever made.  In addition to it having a sophisticated alarm mechanism the dial is a stunning design.  It steel with silver dial with guilloche central part to the dial and original black leather strap. Has an acrylic crystal.  The alarm is loud, and tested to wake me from deep sleep at 7:30 am - working as it should do, loud and on cue. Comes on original strap with buckle with box and papers.  UK retail price for these watches were £1,300 or US ,700.  Width is 37 mm excluding crown, 41 mm including crown, Lug to lug is 46 mm, thickness is 12 mm
