    With pictures of the movement. (The last time I saw 'that' was in a WWII German military watch.)

    Iím very indifferent about this watch, initially i thought it was daft to have the hour counter at the top as the hand covers it when the hour changes, i would like to see it jump when it changes, on the other hand it works very well, as the hour hand passes the hour disc it hides the aperture so one minute its a 2 and the other it miraculously changes to a 3.

    The only downside is if you glance at your watch on the hour and you are a little worse for wear (too much time on the sauce) you have no idea what the time is.

    All that said i do like the watch, years ago i had a Epos jump hour doctor watch which i enjoyed very much. No where near as classy as this one though.
    Cheers,

    Ben

    I love.jumping hours and the hour at the top is nice because you read it first, however they should have put an aperture in the minute hand like Omega did with their solo effort.

    Even better are the Genta retro's with jumping hour & retrograde minutes!

    A friend bought one on Fleabay but sold it, because the date stopped at 12 and one of the hands was missing.

    Edit. Just watch your video so that answered my question.

    Does only the top lug rotate? Must put bit of strain on the strap if so.

    What???!!! My mind just shut down for a second seeing that!!! Im off to watch the vid!!!

    Edit:- Just watched it. Love the quirkiness! Its nice to see a watch bought not for residuals, bragging rights or to play it safe - but instead just because it called out to the owner.

    Love it! Just quirky enough with being too daft and very well executed
