I've already posted in the image subforum, but I thought you guys might be interested… I just received this nice little watch… a 1970 NOS JAQUET-GIRARD.

I don't know much about this brand :think:


  • 30x37mm
  • 20mm lug width
  • ETA Automatic caliber 2783 - 25 Jewels
  • the band is brand new
  • the glass is probably acrylic :think:
  • the watch is super light
  • very dark (black/dark grey ?) sun dial
  • very dim traces of lume
























































DUST ! in the sunshine :-d

When I first saw the name, I wondered if it was the product of some sort of partnership between GP @ Jaquet Droz :think: :roll:

I quickly realized it wasn't, when I read the company line on their website :-d
They seem to have been an interesting company in the past. I wonder if they have retained any of those characteristics? I've seen quite a few of their vintage pieces and they all have had ETA movements, and look to be designed well.

Here is a seller's pic of the movement :

Jaquet-Girard sounds so much like a 'bogus brand'. If it was made in China, the Swissophiles would baying for blood.

On the other hand, it is without a doubt the classiest looking watch I've seen all week. b-) Awesome.

I'll arm-wrestle you for it.
