i am looking for a watch with this function. i have seen breguet and jaeger lecoultre models. i had hoped to find a vacheron. was one made in the past? scott
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.

is mentioned at the end of the article
thank you. you have been very helpful. scott
Vacheron Constantin made timepiece with alarm function in 1825. That was silver pocket watch, today very rare treasure.
