JLC makes plenty.
I have a Panerai 98, which is a mechanical alarm using a Frederic Piguet movement - I think they re-issued it recently
As stitches said, JLC does, and you can also find a vintage memovox that would fit the bill
still cant quote dammit.....but my favorite alarm watch is the panerai. VERY cool watch.
If i recall its a PAM098...could be wrong though and im too lazy to google.
Some Googling led me to Vulcain Crickets. They've got a world-time/GMT with alarm that is quite appealing. Hmmm. Another one for the wish list.
Anyone have a good source for pam oem straps?
Dino, would you mind taking a pic of your El Primero and in-house movement'ed Daytonas side-by-side, please?
Gag me with a spoon!
For some reason my computer is not letting me use the "quote" function. Anyway, I keep many of my watches at the bank in a safe deposit box, and right now thats where the Daytonas are. I'd have to make a trip to the bank to take pictures such as you requested. I don't think I've ever taken a side by side photo of the Zenith based movement Daytona next to the inhouse movement Daytona. But thats a good idea, and I hope to do it soon.
However, to deal with your request sooner, there are several photos showing side by side comparisons on Timezone's Rolex forum (check the vintage Rolex forum). In any event, you will notice in a side by side photo, the dials differe in several ways, the color of the subdials, placement of the subdials (they were shifted upward with the inhouse movement Daytonas), size and shape of the luminous markings on the dials, the size of the hour & minute hand (comparing Zenith based watch to a later Daytona with the so called "Fat hands." Also on some models the font is different as is the placement of the word Cosmograph (on the very earliest Zenith based Daytonas roughly 1989, mine has the word Cosmograph in the usual place as it was made either in 1995 or 96. There are even a few websites dedicated to showing the differences between the earliest and latest Zenith based Daytona dials and bezels.

Its a black dial Zenith and white dial inhouse. Notice...the luminous markings at 3 and 9 o'clock are in line with the centers of the subdial hands, while on the white dial the centers of the hour and minute subdial hands are slightly above the luminous markers at 3 and 9 o'clock. That was due to the upward shift of the subdials on the newer watches.
^ scroll down in the link to see the photo. Sadly, the angle of the black dial watches catches some glare and doesn't fully show how great looking its dial is.
Thanks, Dino. Very helpful.
Fall is so here. Gold brightens the day.
I have one in steel. Great watch.
Me too, it has a better ring than the Pam 98
