Well this is the black version of the jump hour Lob-time retro watch. It’s a new produced watch, battery driven, with a good old fashioned retro “jump hour” style.
This is a jump hour watch by Galaxy. I love this watch. I love the strap, the clasping mechanism, the movement, the lot…
This is TOP! A jump hour watch, and they don’t get much more retro than this.
Utterly loving this watch, a genuine 1970′s jump hour watch with adorable metal strap, funky font and lovely automatic movement.
Here’s a Buler Super Nova, in A1 mint condition! And in black. Black. Surely black is the coolest color for a
What can you say about this watch? You either love it or love it. And I love it!! It’s a watch of uniquely whopping dimensions! 40mm across, 42mm up and down and a chunky 11mm deep. This is a man watch, no doubting it!
This is a Sicura jump hour watch, from the mid-70′s, the same as the blue one’s elsewhere at the site, but in this lovely Olive Green colour.
This is one of those watches which looks SO much better in reality than it does in the photos I take! One fine day I may get someone professional to take these photos, in the meantime you’ll just have to trust me…
Lovely Leca jump hour watch
This is unique. I like jump hour (or “direct time”) watches like these from the 70′s, but this one manages to combine the classic direct hour watch with a classy, almost robotic, silver casing.
This is a winner for all you retro lovers. A Lanco watch – classic retro makers! – in BLACK! Surely the coolest colour out there…!
Here’s a Deadman you’ll love. It’s true that most dead men won’t be very nice to look at, but this Deadman (watch) is a cracker.
Here’s a Buler Super Nova, in A1 mint condition! Sooooo cool. This is a lovely piece, and a collectible watch if ever there was one.
This seems to be the favourite combo for the retro world viewers. The jump hour watch on the blue face. I’m not surprised, it’s a classic rare combo.
I’m well into the design of this watch, although it does make a man a wee bit sleepy after looking at it for too long…
What a watch. A classic 70′s jump hour watch from Lucerne, brushed steel, unreal asymetric shape, great condition, on a brand new blue leather strap.
Here’s another from the Deadman range, really funky retro watches this lot and this comes in a lovely maroon-red type colour on a brand new black leather strap.
Here’s something I KNOW you’re going to love. Or at least admire from afar. It’s a jump hour watch by Technos – which you may have heard of if you’re a retro-watch nut.
These Deadman watches have proved very popular with the regular buyers and viewers at the site. Such is the case that they are almost extinct! This white one is extremely cool, get it while you can.
Well these Deadman watches have proved very popular with the regular buyers and viewers at the site. I can’t say I’m surprised, with that fantastic late 70′s early 80′s font, the great face etc.
Saints preserve us. Here’s another one from the house of Deadman – you may recognise the overall style from the old Sicura watch based elsewhere at the site – it has the same feel to it, but this is a more late 70′s early 80′s piece.
Fantastic jump hour watch by Deadman – check out that 80′s style font!
This is a pre-owned Sicura watch, it’s automatic, showing hours on the left, minutes in the middle, date on the right and has a spinning seconds indicator in the middle.
This is amazing isn’t it? The watch measures a whopping 45 x 42 x 11 and it’s a fairly heavy, chunky timepiece.
How nice is this? I’ve never seen this wonderful Super Nova watch with a unique olive green face before.
This is definitely the favourite combo for the retro world viewers. The jump hour watch on the blue face. The last couple we have had on the site flew off…
Once in a while a watch hits the site which is just amazing. So cool. Here it is…the Sindaco jump hour in blue. It’s in mint condition, bar a very teeny dink on the left side of the shell, and is a really shiny steel case watch & strap.
This is a special watch. It’s more than a watch, it’s a complete collector’s edition chunk of 70′s nostalgia. I mean, look at the paperwork, look at the original plastic box – how COOL is this?
This is a Sicura jump hour watch, from the mid-70′s. Sicura bought out the Breitling company, but Breitling never managed to craft a watch as cool as this!
This watch seems to have it’s original strap – a trendy 70′s diving-style strap. The sheer shape of this watch will take your breath away. It measures a whopping 47mm up and down! 37mm across and is 12mm in depth! This is truly a Big Daddy of a timepiece.
This is a jump hour watch, with a nice light beige face on a silver body. It’s a BIG watch, on a lovely silver strap.
The wee brother of the Deadman range, this – the “Warhead” – is still an impressive watch.

A classic combo here – Sorna, jump hour. It’s got a blue face, classic jump hour mechanism and a spinning seconds mechanism.
Chunky, retro, navy blue retro watch…
This is the highly saught after Lucerne jump hour watch from the 1970′s. Brushed steel on the top, polished at the sides.
Here’s another classic, mint condition, jump hour watch. Navy blue face, amazingly cool. Arguably nicer than the Lordex.
The Lordex jump hour watch
This is a big chunk of 70′s watch. The Buler Super Nova epitomises the style of the 1970′s and this is a great “jump hour” watch of that era.
This Sorna watch is super cool – look at the wee spinning seconds hand!! Look at it’s unique colour tone. Fabby eh?
This watch is great. It makes a bit of a racket, it ticks quite loudly, but this in itself is really charming. Check out this Mentor jump hour watch…
