Vintage Jump Hour Watch YEMA 17JEWELS MENS 1970s SUPER RARE. Now this jump hour watch I'm happy to finally get.. This is a FRENCH watch company from BESANCON FRANCE founded in 1948 by Henry.
Belmont who described his watches.. Crystal is in excellent condition for it age very few scratches.. Hard to see in photos becouse of the shine. If it looks like somthing on the disl its reflection.Dial is reversed painted on the inside of the crystal. Dial is intact all there no cheaps or scratches see photos. Hour and minute disk are a brown mustard color with some pitina but very clear. There a few cheaps of paint missing from the minutes disk at the 55 to 50 Mark i took a photo of just that see photos but doesnt take away or interfere with telling time just.
Now the hour is in the red box and minutes line up with red line see photos. Now minute lines up perfectly but the hour is not perfectly centered with the box. But ive searched for this watch a long time and every picture I've seen all of them seem this way? Why do they appear that way..And sure enough when i got this one it was the same.. This watch jumps right on thr 60 minute mark.. This watch has a FRENCH LORSA 140 1 AD 17 jewel movement. Just serviced has great amplitude 260.. Runs within a minute in a 24 hour period. But that can change by heat cold..
Moisture in yhe air even altitude can change and effect the way a Watch will run.. This watch has a real WOW factor.. I have worked on tons of jump hours..
And this is one unique design.. With the green pin stripping and and red and white dial really pops. Case is crome plating over all great condition d o e s have some brassing around around screw back case see photos Watch runs sets and winds as it should.This watch measures 37mm across without crown 41mm long 19mm lug to lug comes with a New genuine leather alligator style black band with stainless steel buckle fits the style of the watch perfectly..
