Here is a hard to find Tissot Sonorous PR516 alarm watch from the 1970’s. It has the same Icon case (36mm in diamewter) but this time with 2 crowns (both signed). It is the All steel version with the double back case, The inner case is where the movements beats against for the alarm. The holes are for the sound.  This watch is all original and clearly signed all over. The movement number (120XXXXX) puts it in 1970 exactly while this AS 1930 Alarm movement was used only between 1970-1976. This makes Tissot alarm watches scarce in their own right. The other reason why it is hard to find a good Tissot Sonorous from the PR516 series is the plastic bezel. Most of the time it is worn, unreadable or gone missing. This one is very readable…probably because it got glued to the case at some point. So it is fixed in place, but you won’t ever lose it. The sides of the bezel are partialy missing, not very visable from the top, but when you look for it you can see larges pieces missing in 3 places. The overall condition of the case is very good with some scratches on the upper edges. The strap is a new quality black leather on. No box or paperwork.
