Chrome plated, 37mm 70’s style tonneau shaped case and silvery cream dial with interesting hours, minutes, and seconds display.

Key Features

This digi-mech is far from the sort of watch that you’re used to seeing! It comes from the 70’s ‘electronic/digital’ era, when classical mechanical brands were competing with electronic watches and developing these kind of mechanical timepieces with digital display complications. Fun fact – 99% of those advanced electronic digital watches are now dead and non-repairable, due to the degradation of the integrated electronic components. However, the horological digi-mech creations are still alive and running, and with regular servicing will continue to do so for 100+ years.

This particular watch is based on a relatively expensive German PUW 1560D movement, and is the most mature type of digital indication – with an instant jumping hours numeral disc. With its remarkable size and unusual shape, this timepiece really is a special item, fully ready for daily wear on your wrist.

NOTE: It is strictly recommended that you do not move the hour discs backwards, and only move them forwards to avoid any maladjustment of the jump-hour springs.
