Whilst browsing my local market for a nice vintage watch I came across a beautiful Jaquet Droz 50s (or possibly 60s) chrono. I was intrigued as I hadnt seen one before. Ive since been trying to find out Jaquet Droz brand history between 1950 - 1970 and there isnt a lot to go on! I know they had no affiliation with the brand as we know it today and the brand failed in the quartz crisis but thats about it..
What I am most interested in is what movement might be inside the chrono I saw. Some places say Valjoux and some say Landeron.
Unfortunately I wasnt smart enough to snap a pic but im really interested in buying the watch. It has the 2 sub-dials at 3 and 9 and looks like most 50s chronos. Just want to know what I might be paying for, so anybody might have any ideas?
thanks in advance!
