This is a stunning retro watch made my Memostar. This is a vintage mechanical alarm watch, manual wind movement. Rumoured to have been made by Sicura however I am not 100% on this.  The watch I believe was given out to new AA members in the UK (Automobile Association) back in the 1970s.  This was the first retro watch I bought and still one of my all time favourites due to its amazing case design and dial styling. 

Alarm is a mechanism that vibrates (by a wound spring) on the case back. It sounds like a taser being discharged!

If your into retro watches then I can highly recommend sourcing a good example of this watch for your collection.
