ORIGINAL 1970S RETRO WATCH
RAVISA JUMP HOUR DIGITAL REF 16JL20
Ravisa - Electronic System Jump hour watch , Swiss made and never worn before , circa 1970s . Eye catching and very unusual . This watch pretends to be an LED watch with the dark red crystal but that's just a masquerade as it is in fact a mechanical 17 Jeweled wind up watch with a backlight to view the time day or night . Not an electronic display . Jump hour watches were also known as " direct read " or even " digital " because of the way they tell the time using rotating discs that appear behind little apertures . This model shows hours and mins on its 2 easy to read hour/mins discs.
The watch is a large pillow shape , in lustrous gold plating and fitted on a 22mm wide , period gold plate over stainless steel mesh bracelet . Really cool looking with great retro appeal and typifies the 1970s watch style . Completely original , circa 1970s , brand new old stock and running perfectly having just been serviced . This will certainly get you noticed and i am sure not many of your friends will have one of these.
