there is an ultra rare model made in the mid 60s ref 7778 which has this function.

Another solution would be commissioning VC to make a bespoke alarm wrist watch. Click on the link below taken from the "Articles" section to find out how.

  WOW.  thanks for a tremendous amount of information. i am frightened yet intrigued as to what the price might be. i may have to rethink my vacheron dream.

the only ref 7778 I ever saw for sale was in 2005 at the Quarter

Vacheron Constantin made timepiece with alarm function in 1825. That was silver pocket watch, today very rare treasure.

Vacheron & Constantin, No. 24814.

 

Cheers.
