Innovative Alarms

Almost since the beginning of timepieces, people have been buying watches with an alarm. Seems like a handy feature. I mean you always have your watch with you, why not use the alarm? Maybe to remind yourself to pick up the kids. Maybe to take some medication. Frankly, we use alarms for dozens of reasons every day.

The problem? Well, for the most part, they are often too hard to hear. Unless you are in a quiet room by yourself, you may completely miss out on whatever it was you were trying to remember.

The solution? The New Bulova Marine Star Vibro-Alarm Watch. Finally! A watch alarm that you can actually use. Bulova has really done it this time! And frankly, I'm not sure why it's not a requirement for all watches. That's right, I said Vibro-Alarm, as in Vibration. This innovative time piece gives you a choice of either a traditional Audible alarm or a Vibrating one! Inside the watch is a small weighted vibrating mechanism which notably "Pulses" when the alarm is activated. In a crowd? In class? At the Post Office? No problem. No matter where you are, or how loud the environment, this watch has you covered.

Plus you get the advantages of a Silent Alarm. You may not want to announce to everyone else that it is time to take your meds. Once again, No Problem. Set the watch to vibrate and no one knows but you. Now, you may be asking "Is it hard to use?" Most certainly not. This is actually one of the easiest to use alarm watches ever designed. No confusing set-ups or pulling buttons. Just easy, intuitive operation. Anyone can operate this watch and we highly recommend it for anyone who is looking for a alarm watch. Especially for those of us who are a little hard of hearing and or work in a loud environment.

Couple all of this with a great looking case and bracelet design and you get a truly magnificent timepiece. Do yourself a favor and check this watch out today. You will not be disappointed. One "touch" and you too, will be sold.

Tour de France

I simply must add a note about the extraordinary WEB SITE for the Tour de France.

The promise and the power of the Internet are close to being realized with this dazzling news, sport and analysis web site. For any fan of the Tour or of bicycle racing, this is a wondrous site full of features and information.

The Tour itself began in London (yes, London!!) back on July 7th and runs through the end of July. It is tragic that drug use and controversy have tainted the race. This journey through rural France is worth watching for the scenery alone. The countryside is simply beautiful.

In keeping with the theme of the Tour de France, Gem of the DayTM has introduced six new Festina Tour de France Alarm Chronograph Watches for our sport and athletic customers.

We continue to strongly recommend the Festina Tour de France models to anyone who is active in any sport. It is simply the best, toughest and easiest to use of all alarm chronographs. No one has ever designed an easier to use alarm function. It's simple to set the alarm time and you can verify the fact the alarm is set at a glance.
