2.0339 ORATOR ‘ALARM’ mini travel clock, Swiss 1970s

£210.00 (incl. VAT) £189.00 (incl. VAT)

Neat little Orator travel clock with alarm function. The timepiece sits inside a ‘mini briefcase’ leather case, only 41x50mm, no bigger than a matchbox! The dial is a lovely pearlescent tone, with gold tone applied indices and hands. Features a second winding crown for powering and setting the alarm, indicated by the extra red arrrow-style hand. Emits a very loud cricket-like sound!

Key Features

This adorable piece arrives with us unrestored and untouched since its birth in the 1970s. The Orator mini travel clock with alarm function is a gold plated classicly shaped watch case with a pearlescent tone dial, applied gold indices and hands, all housed inside a 41x50mm leather box that is smaller than a matchbox. Upon opening the box, the watch swings forward on its hinges and can be propped up on the crowns (see pictures for reference). Regarding the crowns, one is a standard winding crown for setting and winding the watch, while the other is for the alarm function. Simply pull it out and set the red arrow style hand to the hour you would like it to go off at, and wind it up. The alarm produces a loud and distinctive cricket-like sound, and has an impressive power reserve, so it can emit sound for longer than your standard alarm function wristwatch.
