really makes one of the classiest jumping hour watches out there with the Fleurier Jumping Hours Fleurisanne timepiece. The 42mm wide 18k rose or white gold watch uses the popular and attractive standard Bovet watch case style that always reminds me of a pocket watch meant to be worn on the wrist. The watch is also one of the most beautiful skeletonized watches, designed from the start to be displayed and decorated (with fleurisanne hand engraving). The automatic jumping hour movement is quite elegant in its operation. The central disc is used for the hours and the mechanism powering it is visible as well. The correct hour is shown in the aperture window. The minutes are displayed on a disc around the face with the indicator being at the 12 o'clock position. For night visibility, the numerals have applied Superluminova.
The top-mounted crown and lug ends have applied sapphire crystals which adds an additional and expected element of luxury to this antique-styled watch. You also have the option of diamonds instead of sapphire crystals if you so wish. The case sides are also engraved to match with the face. and a custom hand-stitched alligator strap completes one of the most unique luxury watches available today that combines functional and old-world styled charm. I think it is a fantastic timepiece that feels right, but certainly strays from the norm of most luxury watches out there today.
