Lange produced six of these jumping hours, but International Watch Co. Rolex Day-Date II Replica (IWC), made around 20,000 pocket watches from 1884 to 1890. IWC designed wristwatches that used a similar method to show time for the brand's 150th Anniversary. They featured jumping digital hours and minutes and a small off center seconds hand.Rolex Replica This vintage example can make a wonderful addition to your IWC Tribute To Pallweber 150 years (if you are lucky enough to find one of the 250 pieces of red gold or 500 steel pieces).Like most Pallweber pocket watches it comes with an enamel dial that features two apertures and a small subdial to show the running seconds.

Another gem is from Glashutte in East Germany, where German watchmaking Rolex Day Date Replica skills have flourished since 1800. This part of Germany became a satellite country of the Soviet Union after World War II. This watch was presented by the East German Ministry of Interior to employees for their 30 years of service.This gold-plated watch measures 36mm x 44mm. It also features the well-known calibre GUB75 (06-26). It is a tried-and-true movement that has been tested and proven reliable. We are dealing with an It sounds like the Stone Age in timekeeping when you look at the year that this pocket watch was made. This is four years after Christiaan Huygens invented a pendulum clock (1656), but the balance, a derivation from a pendulum, hadn't made it into pocket watches. This pocket watch, which is more than 350 years old still ticks and shows hours, moon phases, age, day regent, and symbol for its planet. I'm impressed!
