That looks like a very nice example, nice! Very interesting to hear that alarm for the first time (and being a bit disappointed in the sound )

I imagine you guys might know, but the "Bell" does wear out over time. It is a super-easy swap out with an NOS part. Just one screw and the arm I have outlined in red is all you change, then it sounds MUCH better.

Football coach that led Croatia to 3rd place in world cup 1998., has a saying: when you score first goal in the game, second goes in by itself....

Accordingly, 2nd Bellmatic found its way to my collection without much effort from my side ))



I manged to buy new original crystals for 4006 and 4005, and in next month or two, these guys will come back from complete overhaul shining as new

That's a nice pair! I like the 4006 dial colour & pattern. The 4005's are very cool though, love mine. You don't see many 4005's, mine has the same colour dial as your 4006 but without the linen pattern.
