Has anybody else have a "The Watchman" Audible electric Bite Alarm? Supplied by Peter J. Watts (Angling products) Ltd. of 30-40 Polkyth Road ( Polkeyth Corner) ST Austell Cornwall. It's made of CHROME PLATED SS ?. it's huge and fits on the rod butt. Mine is in excellent condition complete with instruction leaflet and it's plastic box, which measures 140mm x 80mm, it also has the original cardboard box it came in. I would say that it has not been used !. I was lucky enough to buy it at a Boot Sale about 15 years ago for £5.00

You mean one of these? They were made between 1955 and 1965

For it's time, it was way ahead of any other alarm. One came up for sale a couple of months ago on a vintage tackle website. It sold for £55.
