I can sit here with my phone face down and hear all my alerts all day. The Blackberry I just tossed out did have a setting for stopping the sounds of alerts only but leaving the clock functioning. Perhaps it's because the Clock is an App, and not a feature hard-coded into the phone, that this is required on the S3.
Have you even checked the alarm options? There is an option to enable alarm ound even on Silent.
