    Beautiful looking watch.

    They have a Web site at Jaquet&Girard , however it's in Deutsche. I believe Zeno is a majority stake holder in the company.

    I may have to pick up one myself. Jaquet Girard was also involved in a lawsuit with Girard Perregaux due to the name.

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

    I quickly realized it wasn't, when I read the company line on their website

    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.

    Re: Jaquet-girard

    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. Awesome.

    I'll arm-wrestle you for it.
