1944 Jardur Bezelmeter Pilot’s Chronograph


This is one of the best examples of a Jardur Bezelmeter chronograph I’ve found. The dial is all original. Only the original hands have been re-lumed many decades ago. This watch has the original turning bezel, thick 13.3mm stainless steel case including the crystal. This WW2 pilot’s (circa 1944) watch measures a robust 37mm across and 45mm lug-to-lug. This vintage chronograph has angled lugs. The case is spectacular – properly polished at some time. The original dial is vibrant and amazing to gaze upon, with its complex indicators allowing pilots and navigators to calculate fuel, distance, flight time, and more. In the Jardur advertising, the company boasted 10 functions which the watch offered: “It is actually 10 precision time-pieces in one unit. Wristwatch, time-out watch, stopwatch, tachometer, 12-hour register, 30-minute register, 60-second timer, degreemeter, and bezelmeter.” The Valjoux 72 manual winding movement is the same one used in the 1960s Rolex Daytona watches. This movement is a true prize – sparkling after a very recent dismantle and meticulous cleaning. This WW2 military-era chronograph watch is a gem.
