Alfex has been around for 60 years and you still haven’t heard of them? I don’t care that they are hard to find, especially in America. It is a cool brand, and this 60th anniversary piece is actually very unlike them, though it is handsome. Typically, the brand produces interesting minimalist designs. This is a more technologically inspired watch with a lot of classic elements, such as the case shape and crowns. The watch itself was designed by Marcus Eilinger, and Alfex is confident that it will become an icon. The Pazzola Giant Alarm is going to be offered in a limited edition of 600 pieces.
The Pazzola Giant Alarm watch, is not exactly “giant” in size, but it is big for the company as it is their first mechanical alarm watch that is skeletonized and features a alarm time disc. The movement is the manually-wound, MC 96.1, 12 calibre with CÃ´tes de Genève polished bridges, circular-grained lower plates, and a 38-hour power reserve. Mechanical alarm watches have never been the loudest in my opinion, but the striking mechanism does sounds charming. One of the two crowns is used to set the alarm time, while the other is used for the regular time. The hands are easy to read and are applied with Super LumiNova, which is good. Overall quality of the watch is at the top of the scale for the brand. The grained leather strap uses a satefy buckle, and the square look of the watch is handsome. Prices for the Pazzola Giant alarm watch will be around 1500 – 3000 Swiss Francs.
