Hi all

Somewhere deep in an forgotten drawer I found this old travel alarm that my mother used quite some time ago.
As you can see in the pic the brand on the dial is Topmaster which is/was a brand of Bueche-Girod SA in Biel/Bienne.
There's an AS 1475 movement inside.
The size is about 5 x 3.5 x 1.5 cm (2 x 1 3/8 x 5/8 inch)
My question is: has anyone seen any other examples of this model and does he/she have any other info about it?
Thanks for your help and have a nice weekend.

press the black cover near the hole (wher a chain could be fitted??) on the right to open the case and then press your thumb on the knurled part on the left to flip up the watch.

The spring-hinged cover keeps the watch in place.

Hope my feeble explanation makes any sense to you.
And yes I know, the crowns have a different brand on them. But that's too long a story.

Never seen that particular model but I've seen travel alarms with AS 1475 (and other by JLC with "Memovox" calibres) before. They are probably not quite as collectable since people can't strap them to their wrist but I personally rather like them!
