    There's information here:

    http://www.wiglaf.org/~aaronm/watches/jaquet/

    In short, these were decent, but unexceptional, watches. The brand name is now used for very expensive watches see:

    But the 60's and 70's watches with the arrow logo have no connection with the modern company.

    Most of the older watches seem to have had Adolf Schild movements.

    Your watch is nice and attractive and I haven't seen one quite like it - but it would probably cost more to get repaired than it would sell for if working (my opinion; I could be wrong and we don't do valuations in here).

    Hope that helps.

    Please don't PM me to ask for a valuation - I won't attempt one.

    One or two things you could do, quite inexpensively...

    If it's a plexiglas cristal, get it polished (it does wonders sometimes) or use some Polywatch.
    Same thing for the case, a good polishing could be good.

    Then a black/brown croco as a strap, and you could have a nice little watch with a prestigious name
