Summary: Purchased this for my husband, he likes that it is sturdy and easy to read. Agrees with others the alarm is not very loud, although not a deal breaker. Be aware the clip that comes with it is not worth using. Watch was lost from this clip the first time used, found on the floor at home! When I received this package I was very disappointed in the way it was packed.
Summary: This product is advertised as an alarm pocket watch. As one other buyer noted, the alarm function is completely useless. The alarm cannot be heard. In addition, the time cannot be set accurately as there are no minute markers. It follows that time cannot be read accurately. This seems strange from a company that supposedly makes watches and knives for the Swiss military. I have another Wenger watch and was expecting something of the same quality.
If you need a "REAL" alarm function.. DON'T BUY THIS WATCH.

Summary: First, I really love the look of this so called Wenger 73015 "Traveler Alarm" Black Dial Pocket Watch. The black face is very good looking, it has a black rubber bumper like guard built around it to absorb shocks/drops etc, water resistant to 99 Feet, beautiful stainless-steel case, it has the date function as well as a small well built leg that can pull out from the back to enable it to securely stand on a flat surface/table etc.
Summary: It looks good. Runs well.Easy to set. However, I should have read the description. I really thought it was backlit. If you carry in your pocket, forget seeing the time in the dark. Hope I missed something in the instructions.
Summary: This watch is well made and seems very sturdy . I started carrying a pocket watch when I retired and, didn't need to be under the clock . The rubber shock guard is great as I broke my last watch by dropping it on our marble entry way . I would have preferred my watch come with a tech/manual/book related to this watch .
Summary: This is a fantastic "pocket watch" for the modern guy who doesn't need the classic silver on a chain. I'm in switzerland right now and spent all day shopping and looking at watches for a special someone. This is definitely the one I want to get him. It's modern, shock resistant, waterproof. It's very very nice when you see it in person. I imagine the guy I'm buying it for clipping it to his backpack or keychain.
Summary: I purchased this watch for the alarm function and the fact that Wenger makes quality products. The watch is well made and quite hefty but I returned it since the alarm is inaudible at either bedside or in a pocket. Moreover, it can't be heard more than a foot away from my ear. According to the Wegner service rep I contacted, the alarm level is typical for this type of product.
