Jacot Gents Hunter Automatic Multi-Function Two-Tone/Silver-Champagne Dial

A stylish and yet extremely functional automatic timepiece from Jacot, the 'Hunter' is the perfect gift for any watch enthusiast. Beyond the round, two tone stainless steel case, are 3 sub-dials of timekeeping information framed by the large date window resting up above. These mini-dials contribute to the overall timekeeping experience by keeping track of the month of the year, the day of the week, and even attract your senses with a dual 24-hour and sun/moon dial below. You'll even enjoy the dual finish bracelet and the smooth stainless steel buckle; both of which provide an optimum finish to this chi watch design.

Note: After the 31st, the date mechanism will continue to run through until it reaches '39'. To correct this, you will need to advance the window until it reaches '01' again.

Charles Edouard Jacot's career in watch making began when he was merely 17. He visited Le Locle where his uncle, Abram Louis Perrelet, lived and worked. The next year, in 1837, Jacot went overseas to help another uncle, Louis Matthey, in his watch case repair workshop in New York City. This shop also imported and repaired watches, where Jacot¿s work expertise was most utilized. Matthey had already come to the States to set up his shop in 1825, though in 1839, he sold most of the interest in the firm to Jacot and George Courvoiser. Both Matthey and Jacot continued working for the firm until Charles left in 1857 and moved back to Switzerland.

During the 20 years that Jacot spent in the Unites States, he began a practice that continued throughout his life; the registration of American patents, 12 in all, for perfecting the construction of watches. The first came in 1840 for a duplex escapement. Another was granted in 1852 for an escapement with an escape wheel in the shape of a three-pointed star with 3 vertical impulse pins placed on small platforms between the points; this influential escapement was able to beat 21,600 times per minute. He later registered patents for a ¾ plate movement, watch key, and various winding mechanisms.

Jacot's greatest achievement came during his studies in the US resulting in his invention of a modified duplex escapement with a "jumping" second hand, known as the Chinese Duplex. During the next few years this special escapement was used frequently on watches being made for the Chinese trade in Val de Travers.

After Jacot's return to Switzerland he founded the company of Jacot & Salzmann in La Chaux de Fonds. By 1876 the firm was renamed 'Charles E. Jacot'. He would then continue his theoretical research including a proposal to replace the epicyclical edges of wheel teeth with edges cut from the arcs of circles. He also made modifications to the stop-tooth of stop works that increased the number of turns of a barrel without changing the number of teeth in the Maltese cross.

Jacot's elder years were difficult as he suffered a disablement that left him paralyzed and unable to continue his already invaluable research, and later died just before the turn of the 20th century.

Charles Jacot's legacy now lives on with these incredible automatic timepieces. Influenced by his mechanical genius, we present to you the Jacot brand with Swiss quality cases, bracelets and leather straps for a whole new generation to enjoy.
