Zeon Rockabilly Time melody watch

Melody watches are great — there’s nothing like an alarm going off playing a tune, rather than a beep-beep-beep noise, while people in earshot try and pick what the familiar tune is they are suddenly hearing.

Somewhere between a single melody watch, and one you can program yourself, lies the Selectrophonic four-melody watches, where you can select any of four shared-theme melodies to be the alarm tune.

And the Rockabilly Time watch features four of the best from the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll himself, Elvis Presley.

Love me Tender, Hound Dog, Don’t be Cruel and Blue Suede Shoes are the four tunes you can choose from – at least one of them seems to be in an unusual key, but what can you really expect from a 40+ year old Hong Kong watch.

Comes with a stopwatch, date and a light, but the melodies are the stars of the show — and rightly so — this one in particular from Zeon is in mint condition. Like many HK watches of the era, they are branded with other manufacturers too, but Zeon had a bunch of them; they are far rarer to find in the US than in the UK.
