Additionally the timekeeping crown located at 2 o'clock is used for winding the barrel, setting the time and changing the day-date functions as shown in the video above, captured on the watchmakers bench during service and restoration.

The crown located at 4 o'clock is responsible for setting the mechanical alarm function.

This uniquely designed AS 5008 movement first appeared on the market in 1970's was and is still used as a base caliber by a number of watchbands such as the obvious one in this video, Certina Automatic Alarm, Junghans Top Timer 640.13, Pallas PARA Alarm, BREIL 145 ALARM.
