Swiss Vibrating Alarm Watches & Our Recommendation

Vibrating alarm watches are watches that can be set to notify you what time it is. In many watches, the 24-hour dial at 9 o’clock shows the reference time and the push-button at 8 o’clock activates the alarm via a column wheel.

These watches have been around for as long as there have been wearable mechanical watches. At the Swiss National Exhibition in 1914, Eterna presented the first wristwatch with an alarm (for that time), which was a technological revolution.

The movement of an alarm timepiece works because the inner mechanisms control the watch's hands, calendars, sub-dials, and alarms. Swiss made alarm timepieces have both mechanical and quartz movements. An alarm watch will alert the wearer using beeps at a pre-set time.
