Additional features of the Alarm Complication:
The alarm mechanism uses a 3rd barrel of its own - not related to powering the watch. Hence even is the watch were to wind down, once could simply get the watch going, reset the time & the alarm will still engage without having to wind up the alarm again.
The alarm function can be set beyond the current month, allowing one to set the alarm to the next month. Even if the month is a short month & the regular date will need a manual correction - the date correction of the regular calendar will transfer to the alarm calendar, so that a correction to the alarm date will not be necessary.
Large 2-disc date display window (bold white numbers) located at the 3 o'clock position.
Movement is finely finished with striped/ribbed finish, some hand engraved designs & beveled component edges.
