    Movement pics would help a lot. I think your dating is probably correct.

    Sorry Eeeb, the watch is in an online auction so I don't have mvt. pics. But it's an interesting watch.

    Other similar Hudsons I've seen had pin-lever movements.

    Are you sure it's a jump hour? Many direct reads from the late-1960s/1970s are incorrectly described as jump hours when they do not have a jump hour movement.

    Display is Hueres Sautantes 'jump hour'
    Movement is analogue

    You are correct. These digital display watches are usually referred to as jump hour but few actually have a jumping hour -- but some do!

    You lost me.
    Does the hour hand change (jump) at the top of each hour?

    Yes... but I have none. All mine are these displays that just move disks instead of hands. The hour disk moves 1/60 of the way to the next hour every minute.

    The only mechanical jump hands I have are some chronographs where the minute and hour registers jump. They are much easier to read.

    Well, that's the thing - you need to know if the movement actually has a jump hour complication. Most of the direct read/digital mechanical watches from this era aren't jump hours. They are simply normal mechanical movements with a set of discs instead of hands, and the displays move continuously. The hours do not jump instantaneously.

    It's erroneous to describe all direct reads as jump hours.

    All of the watches below can be called direct reads or digital mechanicals but only two are also jump hours, (the Caravelle and Regina).

    Sorry, I do not understand
    In 1923 Fabrique De Ebauches De PESEUX applied for a patent for watches Heures Sautantes (literally jumping hour) - It has the same style movement as this watch. the patent was garanted May 1924

    Here is mine 18kt 1932 Peseux Jump Watch (Hueres Sautantes)






    This IS a Heures Sautantes watch
