Jaipur Watch Company, India’s only bespoke watch manufacturer unveils its latest limited edition watch in its Harmony Collection—the ‘Jumping Hour Watch’, a unique timepiece that has a “hour window” instead of the “hour hand”!
Unlike the traditional watch, where the hour hand sweeps the dial, this distinctive creation has a disc behind a tiny window on the dial that ‘jumps’ to indicate the hour accurately when the minute hand touches 12 (60 minutes).
This heirloom has an enamelled off-white dial, with the hour window placed right at the top. It has one long hand that sweeps the dial indicating the minutes and a sub dial displaying a tiny second hand. This mechanism is based on a modified automatic movement, with a power reserve of 42 hours. Part of the complexity of creating a jump hour movement is the regulation of power that is transferred to the hour disc. This elegant timepiece with a steel case, chrome finish, special lugs and a 'quick-release' strap is available in a Jaipur Watch Company Signature Case with a unique embossed back.
