Hello folks, been away from forum for a while, but I'm around. Read up on some of the discussions. On the Timex Mini Alarm, I posted a couple times on these, with pictures. Here's a post which has catalog pictures and prices from late 70s, and the clock I won at auction:

And here are pictures of the watch once I received it. Notice the method of alarm activation, described in the below post. Really cool, uses mechanical spring for timekeeping, but a battery for the alarm! I now have both, the black and the offwhite.

Hi Alan and Thanks for sharing your fabulous info. about those fascinating little Timex Mini-Travel Alarms with the Mechanical Movements and Battery-Operated Alarms. I won one on ebay this past week with the Off-White Case, Deep Maroon Face/Dial and it's original brown colored Vinyl "Timex" protective carrying case in Pristine condition. It's identical to the off-white one you showed in the Timex catalog. Can you imagine the price we'd have to pay for one of these today using 1970 dollars? By the way...the battery used in these little clocks is an EverReady Alkaline Size "N" which is a short version of the AAA battery. It's a 1.5 V Bearing EveryReady Product Number E90 and a NEDA number 910A.
Thanks Again Alan and WELCOME BACK. We've missed you.
