Cortebert Watch Co.

, Movement No. 15666, Case No. 772, 54 mm, 112 g, circa 1885

A rare pocket watch with digital time display - Pallweber patent


Case: nickel. Dial: white laque. Movm.: 1/2 plate movement, "Brevet S.G.D.G.", screw compensation balance, balance stop device.

In the late 19th century many watch manufacturers had the so-called jump hour watches in their range - among them renowned makers such as Lange & Söhne in Glashuette. One of the most proliferous producers of this watch type, however, was IWC, using a technology based on Joseph Pallweber ' s construction; Pallweber had taken out a patent on watches with jumping numerals in 1883. In contrast to many other jump hour models that tend to fill the dial with inscriptions or fine ornaments, this watch by Cortebert pleases the eye by showing us a more or less empty space that is soothing in its pure simplicity.
