History of alarm watch Alarm watches have been around since the early part of the 1900’s when Eterna first patented an alarm wristwatch in 1908. That patent was put into use when the watch was manufactured and sold in 1914. Below is a video of an early Eterna alarm watch in action. Although credit for the birth of the modern day wrist alarm goes to Eterna, it wasn’t until the Vulcain Cricket line in the 1940’s that the function would gain in popularity. Earlier offerings were either too complicated, inaccurate or just not loud enough. Vulcain was able to overcome these shortcomings to produce more desirable alarm watches. This lead to Jaeger-LeCoultre getting in on the game in the late 1940’s and progressing the style with the development of the Memovox, the first automatic watch with an alarm.
