RODANIA Swiss “Datofonic” Vintage Date Alarm Pocket/Desk Watch – AS Cal. 1568


Out of stock

From the 1950’s, a wonderful RODANIA “Datofonic” pocket watch that also doubles up as a travel alarm/date desk clock, that has been professionally inspected in-house here at the Localtime Spa.

The stainless steel case has not been polished, houses an AS Cal. 1568 and measures in at 42mm [9h-3h]. The dial is stunning, with the date window at 3h and the alarm 15-minute interval-scale in the middle, applied indices, numerals/logo and a red-pointer alarm hand. Both crowns are logoed Rodania, one used for time and one for the alarm. It comes on a same-period chain to be used as a pocket watch. Swivel the back ring out and its ready for your work desk or night table while travelling. I have included many photos, including some closeup snapshots I took just for fun.

As with all the watches I inspect in-house here at the Localtime Spa, the BIN price includes a written 3-month written warrantee from the date of purchase. Feel free to contact me for whatever questions you might have.

EXTRA! Check out my own Localtime straps: Handmade from premium calf leather to my own specifications in Italy, they come in 5 sizes [lug width/buckle width]: 18/16, 19/16, 20/16, 21/18 and 22/18mm & 8 colours: tan, brown, dark brown, black, cinnamon brown, olive green, denim blue and grey blue. I sell these separately in my eBay store under eBay item number 401105271426.
