Cool! I hadn't heard of a Wakmann before now.  I have an alarm pocket watch with a Baumgartner 222 in it, and I have a Poljot alarm wristwatch, and I knew about the Vulcain Cricket, but I will have to read up on Wakmanns now.  Interesting.

I have a lot of vintage watches stored in a closet, and they get dusty day by day. Wakmann is there too. I think 2. I thought it would be a good investment for the future but unfortunately it hasn't been that great as I struggle to sell them at a market that is full of smartwatches and millennials. A great example is my son that asked for his birthday a https://timefacade.com/ instead of a classic watch. At first, I have to admit I was a bit sad and upset but when I went to their website and saw all the things this watch can do I did realize the reason of why the importance of vintage watches is fading.

Hello and welcome to the forum.  how true, If it doesnt count your steps,chek pulse/heart rate and a million other things its not cool just telling the time dayand date is old hat unless you are a geriatric like me. All I need is to count the time I have left.   Its a shame but thats progress.
