I bought this for occasional wear,  but it's very precise, good WR and screw down crown, and now I only occasionally take it off ...

My favourite bracelet too, time for a little Cape Cod perhaps ...

Always wonder how steel is so easily marked.

Have a great day

Morning,

Westclox “Watchlarm” today.

Made in the La Salle factory in 1960 and like hen’s teeth nowadays finding one with its W.5 movement in working condition, being unduly fragile according to Ranfft. Today’s plucky survivor was only acquired through the generosity of a fellow-collector pal in the States.

An inelegant name, and not a commercial success for Messrs Westclox, it was quietly discontinued in 1961 having been awkward to manufacture combined with the volume of warranty claims. Oops!

Regards.
