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 royal blue heirloom has an enameled blue 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.
