    I used the alarm in the school, to set the finish time for class. Some of the teachers didn’t “understand” how important is to have the break between the hours. πŸ™‚ Some of them used to keep us in the class even in the break. The alarm helped me in some of these situation πŸ™‚ I keep remember the iritate figures of those teachers.

  • sportscenterisnext

    Hi ends watches are nice to look at, not sure they are for me. I would be extremely concerned about damginging them in some form it would take away from the joy of wearing it. If I had to select a hi end timepiece a Blancpain Tourbillon or anything by Kari Voutilainen would be my choice.

    I would be very content with a Maurice Lacroix Masterpiece Phase de Lune or a Zenith Elite class Moonphase Grande Date.

  • Perry Spice

    I have used an old swatch diver as an alarm, as I am getting a little older I like to have a nana nap after lunch, in my dreams I return to the Nautilus anchored at Vulcania and become that steampunk hero Captain Nemo, rudley awakend by the alarm I return to my cabin on the old bulk carrier I work on. I think I could really dream if I had that Yema on my wrist

  • Leslie George

    Blancpain Mens Leman FLYBACK would be just great!

  • kris c

  • Gaurav R

    If I were *hypothetically* cheating on a friend with his girlfriend I’d sure as hell need an alarm on my watch to tell me when he might be expected back….

    My dream watch is a Breitling, Navitimer World. The blue one is really cool.
    I’ve already set my watch alarm to simulate a phone call during a boring company meeting and get an excuse to leave the room for 5 minutes. As I always have strange ring tones on my cell, and people know it very well, everybody laugh stating that my phone was now ringing as a watch! I just said with a smile “True. I’ve to change it again!”.

  • matt

    I’d set the alarm to wake me up in the morning. I use my iPhone for this, but it fails to wake me up at least one day a week.

  • Richard

    I’d probably use a watch alarm to make sure I don’t miss my stop on the bus.

  • I’d use the alarm on a watch to remind me that I really need to get back to work instead of spending so much time reading watch reviews on and updating my facebook. I think it is very important that I win this watch so I can remain employed!

    And since everyone is shopping for their holy grail watch, mine is a Breitling Navitimer Cosmonaute with the Anthracite dial. I think it would help me feel weightless!

  • Bob Sebastian

    Between the alarm and the sun glinting off the crystal creating “light faeries”… I can really drive my OCD English Bulldog crazy!

  • weatherman

    Nice looking watches – simple, clean designs. If I were buying one with my own money I’d probably go for the non-chrono with auto movement, but that’s just personal preference.

  • Hanns

    I would use the alarm to know when I have been in the bathroom too long, before people start yelling at me to get out.

  • Andre

    Seriously. I simply tiered of not waking up on time even with my alarm clock (I’ts not loud enough) I’m sure if I win this, my boss will send you a gift or something πŸ™‚

    This is a great watch. Never had a blacked out watch before. Hope I win this!

  • To remind myself to go stop playing Evil Genius before dinnertime.

  • Isaac M

    This is a great looking watch. The best part of an alarm is hitting snooze when it goes off.

  • Johan Vargas

    i would use the alarm to countdown until March 31st 2011!

  • Richard

  • Jose Bueiz

    I would love to own a Romain Jerome…-_-

  • I would use the alarm to wake me up at my home.

  • Chas NY

    I would set a daily alarm for about 8am. That is the time I usually walk my dogs. The alarm would not be to wake me up, or to remind me the dogs need to be walk, they do that on their own. The alarm would be to remind me to look down and make sure my fly is correctly zipped because since I hit age 47 last summer, it seems that’s the one thing I can no longer remember to do before walking out of the house.. This is not a joke, sadly it’s true, but if this is the worst thing I have to deal with as I age, I’ll gladly take it.. πŸ™‚

I’d use the alarm to remind me when it’s time to go pick up my wife from work….as I get home before she does and I am always late picking her up. Why…because I am reading or responding to threads on all the Watch Forums I belong to!!!!

  • Phillip Neyman

    I hate to admit it but I use my watch alarm (when Im wearing a watch with an alarm) for cooking primarily. I just dont find myself underwater, running out of oxygen all that often… cheers, and good luck to all!!

  • Jerry

    I would set my alarm so the person i was with would be like “what time is it?” and then i would reply in a Schwarzenegger voice “ITS TURBO TIME!”

  • Tommy Higdon

    Okay, so you updated the comment requirements, so since I am confused I will try to do both….

  • Eric W.

    I would use the alarm to let me know when my pasta is done boiling!

  • Tom Federico

    I work at a McDonald’s and there’s this guy who comes in and times his order. So I set my alarm for an additional minute every time he walks in to make sure it takes longer then the last time.

  • Vadim Zamfir

    Can’t say I remember ever efficiently using a watch alarm, for that I usually resort to my phone, however I do remember toying around with a new Seiko alarm chronograph I got when I was in 9th grade, trying to set a second time zone but accidentally setting off the alarm during an introduction class, which was pretty awkward.

    I would use the alarm function for “time out” sessions, for one of our four kids. There is a real possibility of needing more than one timer at the same time. so just throw in a Memovox, too. thanks.

  • John

    Are we talking about which watch we’d want if money was no object? Or how we’d use an alarm? In either case, a Maitres du Temps Chapter One in rose gold. And I’d use my alarm to remind me to periodically stop reading watch blogs and get the hell back to work / pay attention to what my wife is saying / sleep.

    I use alarm watch to wake me up during work travel.

  • Eric

    The JLC Reverso Gyrotourbillon has always been on the wishlist!

  • any Patek Phillipe

  • Steve Hong

    I wish I could afford a Porsche Design high end watch.

  • S

    I would use my alarm to remind me when the cleaning lady in our office building is about to hit our bathroom down the hallway. Because there is nothing worse than franticly walking to the bathroom and turning the corner, only to see the “bathroom cleaning in progress” sign on that door. Then you are left with 2 options. Run for dear life down 2 flights of stairs and pray you make it or wait it out like a man and see just how strong your bladder is… I always run.

    If I won this watch, with it’s alarm feature, I would consider giving it to my daughter’s school bus driver. That way she could use the alarm to alert herself that she is too early for pickup, and stop screwing up all the parents already trained for a later time. Seriously!

  • D Munny

    I would use my alarm remind be to feed the fish!

  • Jeremy West

    Maybe a watch alarm that goes off every time I have an impure thought? And, if this watch were super expensive AND super ugly, it would be a terrible, terrible investment…but I’d probably buy it anyway, since, you know…it’s a watch.

  • kevster

    I would set the alarm to remind me when I needed to come up to avoid the bends. Or does nobody use these for that?

  • Victor M

    I last used an alarm wristwatch back in the glory days of the Roaring 20’s when I timed how long I would Charleston with my best dame. It was also great at setting limits for taking turns counting 1918 pennies, as was the fashion at the time. There’s an interesting story about those pennies, including the time I used them to put patterns in toast.

    Toast and sauerkraut, but without the kraut, or liberty cabbage as we thought of it, … Alarm? what? What alarm, you hipster hippie, … what is the fascination with hips?

  • Malfoy Roark

    I used an alarm to wake me up in time to scream at the plane flying over in hopes of getting me off the island.

  • I love that Urwerk UR-110 Torpedo that was reviewed a week or two ago. I’d need a larger wrist to sport it though πŸ˜›

  • Bill Jones

    I guess I use an alarm on a watch when it’s available, but I never really look for it on watches that don’t have it? If one of my nicer watches had an alarm, I’d set it to remember to go home at the end of the day. Just kidding – no alarm needed for that!

  • Neil

    Ever since childhood I’ve had a fear of being late, primarily because it’s terribly impolite but also because I’m always afraid I’ll miss something. An alarm watch would help keep down the anxiety!

  • Dave Hamilton

    I could use the alarm on my watch to remind me each night to set my iPhone alarm for te morning. πŸ™‚

  • Jay S.

    I’d keep it programmed to be set at the push of a button. Perhaps an alarm/countdown timer that I’d use it for those awkward conversations with old acquaintances from high school or ex-girlfriends. I’ll start the timer as we first starting conversing, then if the convo goes nowhere or is quite dull, I’ll tell them the alarm ringing is to remind me to feed my fish. “I’m sorry, Diana, I’m miles from home & gotta feed Jesse. πŸ™ Good seein’ ya,” & run off like an idiot..

    I recently was lucky enough to be wearing my Citizen with alarm when having a ten hour layover at Bangkok airport – from late evening to early morning. I tried to stay up, but the last two hours were tough and I set the alarm in case I fell asleep.
    As much as I tried to stay up I was lucky enough to have set the alarm, because as I rested my head with the watch very close to my ear I was soon awoken by the sounding alarm and made the flight.
    If I had missed that flight it would have been a very very long journey to my final destination!

  • Jim Gormley

    A few years back, I was in a very strict Army school- We were standing in formation and the alarm to my Casio Gshock began to go off. Seeing as how were were standing at attention, I didn’t want to move to turn the alarm off. Instantly I felt one of the Instructors breath on the back of my neck, and quietly asking me why my alarm was going off in formation. Fortunately, the alarm quits beeping after about 10 seconds. I spent the next 1/2 hour doing pushups and bear crawls, for not having the sense to make sure my alarm wasn’t set to go at inappropriate times. I enjoy the sleek styling of the Yema Diving Chrono. I think the black would work perfectly with my ACU’s, as long as I didn’t set the alarm to go off while I was standing in formation.

  • Matt

    Humorous? Any time I use a watch alarm make sure I wake up. Always ends up under a pillow. Instead, I set them for some afternoon hour so that if I misplace it, on the weekend it tells me where it is.

    I would use the alarm function on my watch to wake me when my office hours are over. As it is rare that students ever venture by my office during office hours, it would probably be a great opportunity to get some rest. So, yeah set an alarm for the end of my office hours so I can go home.

    Alarm would be nice to keep me awake at work. For some reason people not really into buying cars these days.

    When I got my first alarm watch when I was kid I would set it up to wake up in the morning. Likely my mom was there to make me up so I wasn’t late for school.

  • Love the look of this month’s watch. I like alarms on watches to help remind me of meetings I have – usually set em about 2 hours in advance – not humorous….but true!

    I’ve actually used a watch alarm to remind me I’d probably had enough to drink at the bar and still be sober enough to call a cab to take me home – lol.

  • Date rescuer

    I would set the alarm when going on a first date and if the date was a bad one when the alarm went off i’d say it was connected to my mom’s heart pace and let’s me know she had a heart attack so i’d run out of the crap date and go “save my mom who is in the middle of a stroke”!!! Evil and dark but perfect way out!!!!

    You always need to set the alarm so you know when to kick girlfriend #1 out so she doesn’t cross paths with girlfriend #2.

    The last time I used a watch alarm was probably on an old Casio or Timex to let me know when my GF’s parents were due back home so we would not get caught in a compromising situation. Have to maintain the illusions for the folks. Of course, that was ages ago. We have cell phones for that now.

  • I’ll use the alarm to let me know when it’s time to set my phone alarm, which in turn will let me know when it’s time to set my night table’s clock alarm. This last alarm will let me know when it’s time to set my watch’s alarm.

    As you can see, it is an extremely delicate situation.

    I love watches. I love them so much, I talk to my coworkers and girlfriend about watches all the time. They don’t understand the beauty, complexity, intrigue of such a small device’s ability to describe the time. I would wear this YEMA Diving Chronograph at work. I would set the alarm for 4 minutes in from when I begin a conversation or debate on watches. Just as my coworkers start to yawn and fall asleep, it will chime, once again regaining their attention to the most important and serious subject of beautifully displayed time!

I set it for her birth time. 3:47AM….well I forgot about it but was wearing the watch at the hospital during labor, 12 hours…my poor wife…she needed some encouragement and after a few minutes the alarm went off…no kidding…she laughed so hard withing 15 minutes the birth of our son.

    He got so angry I did not dare to tell him it was me.
    When he got angry at the same student as the day before (hilarious for the other guys) I told him.
    It nearly got me fired, but they other guys in the office had a good laugh.

  • Mike Bookhardt

    The only watch I have with an alarm, is the Suunto Core, which has both an time alarm, and also a ‘Storm’ alarm, which sounds when various barometric pressure shifts occur. That function is an outstanding feature when in the outdoors, camping, hiking etc. Nice to know when you may have some upcoming weather to contend with. That said, it has been useful when it has gone off in a meeting. Friends of mine, that recognize the alarm, often attribute the barometric pressure shift to the increased ‘hot air’ associated with the meeting. πŸ™‚

  • John C

    I don’t currently have an alarm watch, so this Yema would do very nicely. First thing I would do with it is set the alarm for when my wife announces she will be done with something in a specific amount of time. I doubt she will appreciate being timed, but I’ll get a kick out of it. The other thing I would use an alarm for is when me and my coworkers are waiting for the person who called a meeting to show up. Use the old 5 minute rule to bail.

  • Mike

    I have never had a watch with an alarm, but if I do I will probably use the alarm to wake me up in between classes so I can take a nap and not have to worry about missing the bus back to campus. I somehow always end up running out to get the bus. An alarm would help me get to the bus stop on time. A dive watch that also has a chronograph and an alarm would defiantly make me happy.

    I regularly use the bezel on my watch to help with cooking, especially with roasts in the oven. When it’s a quick job I don’t have a problem but if I need to leave something in there for say 34 minutes i tend to get side-tracked. That’s when I think an alarm on your watch would be really handy; it’s annoying having to take out your phone and set an alarm when your hands are occupied/dirty in the kitchen.

I actually Do have alarms on all of my watches. the alarms remind me to call my wife, at home, to make sure she gets my children up to go to school and this is no matter where in the world I am. If I don’t call her, my kids will be late for school and it would be ALL my fault.

  • Sean

    After spending all these late nights making sure I’ve listened to your podcasts, and ensuring that I’ve read every post you’ve ever contributed to the vast array of websites and blogs that pay your bills, I can honestly say I would use this alarm function to battle my Ariel Adams-horologically induced sleep deprivation. It’s become a problem, even a form of narcolepsy if you will. It can strike at any time….when driving, working, or when faithfully entering these contests, I live in fear and I think this alarm could reallitnf;rgn;vbm zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

  • Does it tell time? Is it waterproof for at least mild scuba? Does it have a chrono? Does it have a date? Is it an automatic or good quartz? All of the above are important, in fact critical but here’s the kicker. Does the watch feel good on your wrist? Afterall, it’s going to be spending a lot of time there and it better be confortable. Have a certain “heft” to it without being a workout. Should have a bracelet that doesn’t pinch your skin or pluck hairs from your wrist.

    Anything that fills these criteria is a good start and this watch looks like it might meet them all.

    A great looking watch and a movement that anyone would be proud to wear in tribute to the work being done in Japan by the individuals (from Japan and all over the world) to help the disaster survivors.

    I would use the alarm to wake my daughter up in the morning for school. She is just learning to tell the time and so I have to leave my watch beside hers on her bedside table so that we can put them on together in the morning. An alarm would get her out of bed like a shot and knowing my luck she’d be the one wanting to wear the YEMA!

    Great website. Geoff

    My friend gave me a Revue Thommen “Cricket” Mechanical Alarm watch. If you have ever heard it, they are extremely loud. First week I had it I was in church, and as the Pastor was getting ready to finish his prayer in a dead silent church it went off. And since I hadn’t had the watch very long I couldn’t turn it off quickly. After I shut it off I looked up and the Pastor gave me the look of “I know I’m running long but you don’t have to remind me”. Great watch and since it vibrates as well you can alway tell when the alarm is going off. Thanks for the Blog and the podcast.

  • Les

    I would set the alarm to go of every 10 minutes to annoy my (gorgeous) wife and three (divine) kids and then go of into a mad rant about the history of the YEMA watch company. Of course i would have a French accent and a fake mo to set the mood !

    After a night of agitated patients needing sedatives, pneumonia coughs, pain seekers, confused nurses, misordered medications, “critical” notifications, and unintentional messages sent to the wrong pager, I would set my alarm (preferably with a different tone than the one my pager has) for when I can throw my pager off the roof of the hospital and finally go home and get some rest after such a wonderful night of call.

  • Marco Franken

    I use an alarm on my watch when there’s a comercial break on tv and i’m sitting on the toillet with my phone reading ablogtoread. Otherwise i would miss the rest of the program.

    The first time I decided to use it, I was at the Guggenheim museum (on vacations) waiting for my mom and aunt. As I arrived early, I decided to walk around and (intelligently) set the alarm at the time we were supposed to meet.

    Lo and Behold, they arrived early. I went to the locker room to leave my camera, jacket and why not, watch (why I got that idea I don’t know). I put it in my bag, handed it over and it went off…. OH! The face the guys and patrons (there) made….security arrived, police arrived it was not a pretty sight…

    Finally I explained the situation and everyone…police and security included started complimenting my watch…one even asked me if I could point him to the web site where I had bought the piece…..

    I’d use an alarm or all sorts of things: Paying the mortgage, turning the steaks, setting an alarm…

  • Ubaldo

    Bremont > WOW…. I used my alarm only a few times of which I never woke up to it.

  • Ham

    I’ll use my watch alarm to wake myself up when I slack off and took a short nap in the conference room

  • Steve Peterson

    When I’m travelling, I can never work (or trust) the alarm clock so I bring a cheap digital watch along to wake me.

  • Frank Bennett

    I use a cheap Casio watch with a vibration alarm to wake me up in the morning.

  • simon

    I need an alarm to tell me to get my fat lazy ass up and out on my walk.

  • John Kenderesi

    I use the alarm on my watch to let me know when I can finally stop my self torture……. otherwise known as my workout.

  • Ryan Sheehan

    I would use the alarm as an excuse to become a diver, and then I would change my name to Cousteau.

  • Simon T.

    I’d use the alarm, simply because I cant figure out how those damn rotating bezels work!

  • Joshua Schwertner

    I use alarms for everything from waking up, to taking medications, and even reminding me to eat.

  • Alex

    Cool looking dive watch

  • I would use the alarm to wake me up from my (long) power naps at work.

  • carolyn

    I’d use the alarm to annoy the pets when I go mountain climbing and don’t need to bring my watch.

  • Vladimir Penev

    Well, this diver is a black killer. Never had a chance to touch Yema before, so I can’t comment the build quality, but what I see from the picture is perfect design. Aggressive and clear to read.
    Alarm. Hmm. It’s very useful when I want to limit a conversation. Just set the alarm to start about 10-15 minutes after the meeting start time. “Oh, I really forgot about this appointment. Sorry about that. See you next week…”

  • Francis P. Forte

    I’d use the alarm to get away from my wife! I’d tell her I need to get on an important call. I guess I couldn’t use it too late though……

  • Frank Forte

    I would use an alarm while diving to remind myself that im out of air!

  • Matt Kaufman

    I’d use an alarm on my watch to remind me to set my bedside alarm clock before going to sleep.

  • If humor in this forum were a watch, John would definitely say “I wouldn’t strap that to my dog!”. That being said I would use an alarm to start a wake-up call service for watch enthusiasts who obviously need to wake up in time to earn a living in some other arena other than comedydome. It will save lives.

  • I was out in the woods taking some photos at 7 at night. I had an alarm set on my Nooka watch for 12:30 am as a “get to bed” alarm. I was deep into the woods many hours later and it was rather dark out. I saw an amazing frog on a branch and leaned in to get the shot. but just before I depressed the shutter my alarm went off alerting the frog. he leaped away never to be captured by my lens. it is not that funny I suppose.. but a little ironic.. that frog probably went to bed soon after. my “get to bed” alarm worked for someone.

  • Marko

    I use alarm when boiling eggs or cooking meat.

  • I need an alarm when my iPhone decides not to wake me up after the time-change (or whatever the correct English word there is πŸ™‚ )

  • Olivier

    If I was a girl, I would use my alarm watch to remember taking my anticonceptional pill every single day not to become pregnant because of a lack of memory! πŸ™‚

  • Using the alarm would reminde me to check the time delay on my camera for that special shot.

  • Jean-Pierre HALBWACHS

    I always dreamed to own an automatic chrono alarm… some years ago I finally bought a second hand (still expensive) black PVD pilot model. Just gorgeous ! it worked great… twice ! it was not ringing anymore a very specific morning I was going to claim for a job, I was really late and explain to my potential future boss, I was a fan of non-working alarm chronograph, he replied I should wear a Vulcain like the one sitting on his wrist. My chrono-alarm has been since spending more time on watchmakers drawers waiting for a fix, no one was ever able to make this one reliable again ! Either it is ringing, and the on/off warning id dead, or I cannot make it stop ringing or the winding is dead. One (cleaver) watchmaker told me to forget about this f%*k!§g customized caliber and to win a YEMA YMHF0202 alarm chronograph.

  • David

    My alarm would be used to put a quick end to unwanted conversations. Simply set it for a couple minutes ahead. Wait until it goes off and announce that “My bull5417 detector just went off. Sorry, gotta go.” Or whatever line will extricate you from the situation.

    I’m friending you on FB next then looking over your catalog.


  • Keith

    Since I sleep through alarms, I would need a watch with an alarm to wake my wife up so she can wake me up! Or….I am currently collecting clocks and watches with alarms to recreate the opening scene of Back to the Future when all the alarms go off, reminding Marty that he is late for school….ah, gotta love the mid 80’s!

  • derique

    An alarm is used to tell me I’m spending way too much time in the toilet. No seriously, it’s all the iPad’s fault for allowing me to read and browse websites like this and posting my deepest darkest secret. πŸ˜›

  • Kevin

    I typically set 5-6 alarms to wake me up in the morning. The more, the better.

  • Mischa

    Since i have a little alarm clock (female and 2 years old) running around at 7am, i thought i never had to use an electronic alarm again. But …. the opposite is true.

    I just want to be awake before her.
    So i can wake her up.
    Instead of the other way around πŸ™‚

  • Gordon

    wake me up from the cat naps in the hospital

  • JeremyGraham

    I use the alarm to remind me to stop spending time procrastinating on various Internet forums and social networking sites, ha.

  • Andrew White

    I’ve used alarms on watches to fake early morning appointments to get out of awkward “wake-up” situations with … female acquaintances …

  • Alex

    I would use the alarm to remind me to call my father so that he can summon his evil army of the undead and take over the world….

  • Jon

    I will use my alarm for when I am out grilling food…not very humorous, I know, but oh well!
