Lovely and rare Jaquet Droz (Swiss) chronograph watch, this lovely 1960’s timepiece has been professionally inspected in-house here at Localtime.

It is absolutely 100% original, with no foreign parts, in great condition throughout and ready to proudly wear or join your collection. The 43mm [45.50mm counting centre, screw-in crown] polished steel case is in excellent condition, with a small nick at the 8h position. The black dial and dual-purpose bezel (elapsed time and second time zone) and hands, are a feast to the eyes. I have made many photos of the watch, including some closeup snapshots, just for fun. This lovely chronograph is fitted with one of my own glove-grain premium calf leather strap in weathered grey. These straps can be purchased separately from eBay item number 132797421296.

As with all the watches I handle in-house here at the Localtime Spa, the listed price includes a written 6-month written warranty from the date of purchase. Feel free to contact me for whatever questions you might have.

Extra: Try my Localtime Glove-Grain premium calf leather straps! I have found them to be very comfortable and a great match especially for dress watches or chronograph watches that will combine well with this style of straps. They come in 3 sizes [18-20-22mm], 6 colours and have colour-matching stitching on top and an extra stitching on the back side. Their length is approximately 88mm on the buckle end [including the silver-coloured buckle and 115mm on the tail end; so not short but not too long either. They have two keepers, one of them is fixed and the other one is floating, for a better fit and comfort. I have included many photos when you scroll down, so you can get a better idea of what you are ordering. A good quality pair of spring bars is included with each strap. Feel free to contact me for whatever questions you might have.

Important Note: Sometimes I am asked what I exactly mean with ‘professionally inspected by Localtime’. Here is my theory on vintage watches: as a purveyor of vintage watches, my effort is to always do only what is needed to the watch. I do not buy ‘junk’ watches to resell. I am choosy with my purchases and always sell watches that are, to my knowledge, authentic and in good condition. I first inspect the watch, both visually (cosmetically) and then mechanically. If I judge that the watch is not yet in need of a full service then I do not put the watch through a service which, by the way, entails a lot of risks too. Instead, I give it what I call my ‘Spa’ treatment which will include a cleaning, changing of gaskets, oiling, lubricating and mechanical testing. If the plexi is heavily scratched or discoloured and it can not be cleaned, I change it. If the crown is wrong or worn, I also change it. Now, if the watch is in need of a full service, then my ‘professionally inspected’ description becomes ‘professionally serviced’. In both cases, I include a written warranty with my buy it now price and I always describe what I have changed, if anything, on the watch.

Important Note On Straps/Bracelets: The straps I use on my watches [leather, canvas, suede, rubber] are always brand new, unless otherwise mentioned and, in most cases, I also sell them separately in my store, in different colours and sizes. In the case of metal bracelets, if the watch is NOS, the bracelet is also unused. If the watch is pre-owned with its original bracelet, then the bracelet is also pre-owned, unless otherwise mentioned. Either way, if in doubt, please ask.
