Vintage Oris Wrist Alarm, Tissot & Imado

TheWatchFace Shop – Vintage Watch Showcase

In this article we highlight the new additions to TheWatchFace Shop!

Oris Wrist Alarm


In the late 1980s, Oris had only been making quartz watches but their new CEO wanted a change. To reintroduce mechanical watches to the Oris line, he bought a large quantity of AS 1930 mechanical alarm movements, and built a 50s inspired wrist alarm watch. These were made in limited numbers, most of them were gold plated but this is one of the stainless steel versions with 18k solid gold bezel! What’s best is not only was this originally purchased in NOS condition and comes with the original box and instruction manual, but this watch was also serviced by a highly regarded watchmaker in 2015! To top it all off, included in this deal is a german watch magazine from 1991 which has a test of the Oris Wrist Alarm. Oh, and what a true stunner this watch is!

Imado Day-Date Steel


A stunning solid stainless steel swiss made watch on it’s original bracelet! From the stunning light grey dial to the incredibly finished solid stainless steel case and bracelet, this watch is breath-taking. An amazing alternative that has the feel of a vintage Rolex Datejust or Tudor Oyster Prince. What’s best about it is it can be yours for a fraction of the price of the before mentioned watches! An incredible pickup and incredible daily wear watch.

Tissot Non Magnetic


Tissot was the first brand to introduce mass produced, non magnetic watches in the 1930s. This example, produced in 1944 offers tremendous value as it is fully stainless steel, sealed against water and shockproof, all of these not commonly found on watches of that era! On top of that, the movement is clean and in great condition, the watch runs extremely well and that’s not even beginning to mention the aesthetics… From the all original patina dial, to the unpolished case to the original syringe hands, everything is stunning, original and can be yours at a very affordable price.
