Post27 Jun 2014, 21:10

Found NOS in store this fantastic Philip Watch jump hour,it's the first time for me with this kinf of watch....i love the futuristic design but i'm not habituate with a non-digital watch :oops: :oops:
I don't know the released year but probably i can set it in 1974-75 when digital started in the market.....

Simone,

Wow, I love the style and the extra wide integrated bracelet on this model. I rather enjoy wearing jump hours since you can often hear the soft "click" as each hour ticks by. Nice find!

This watch will most likely have one of the most fragile and servicing unfriendly jump movements invented.
