The ingenious
flyback Wittnauer Futurama is an amazing "Retrograde" concept that is considered to be a jump hour. It is rare to some extent and one of the most expensive jump hours. A few dial versions were made: black+gold, gold+grey or silver+yellow trim as pictured. It features a robust 28.800-beat automatic ETA2784 power-horse with flyback module applied on top. There is no reference in any literature on the inventor of this module but it can be found in other similar watches including the famous LIP Sectuer
and a few obscure brands (also revived recently in a modern quartz Jean d'Eve). The ETA movement and most of its derived calibres are produced unchanged until today so spare parts are easy to find. The jumping functionality is simple but requires some insight for easier troubleshooting during repairs.

So what exactly is the Sector Futurama? Well, it's one of the few double retrograde wristwatches that saw the light of day during this time period. This watch features a Swiss-Made automatic movement that, on top of being a true double retrograde (hands descend along dial and jump back to top on the hour), features a date window.

There were very few double-retrograde watches made in the early seventies but here are two of the very best. The vintage automatic winding "Futurama 1000" by Wittnauer featured only three styles, silver dial, yellow and black dial with hours and minutes displayed in an arc (hours on left, minutes on right). As each hand travels to the bottom, they fly-back to the top rather than circularly rotate. Deep-set magnified portholes for date display..

HISTORY OF EBERHARD & CO WRISTWATCHES

George-Emile Eberhard, the founder

The Eberhard & Co manufacture was founded in La Chaux-de-Fonds, the historic birth place of watch-making industry by George-Emile Eberhard. Eberhard was the son of a prominent Bernese family tracing its origins back to the 10th century which has become instrumental in the development of the Swiss watchmaking industry. His father early initiated him to the art of watch making and Eberhard was only 22 when he founded the company.
1900-1947
In 1907, the company has become one of the largest swiss watch manufacture and inaugurated its new headquarters which takes an entire block at the very center of rue Leopold Robert, La chaux-de-Fonds's main avenue. The Parisian-like five-stories building was designed in distinctive Beaux Arts style with a round tower topped by an impressive eaglescuplture has become one of the city's wellknown landmark and its highest construction until the 1960s. In 1919, Eberhar's sons, George and Maurice took over the company. During the 1930's, the brand designed some of the most modern and innovative watches of the time such as the very first chronograph with self-winding movement in 1930, the first featuring a stop and start again buttons in 1935, the first wrist-watch with counter device in 1938 and the first double timekeeping chronograph of 1939.
1947-1987
After the end of World War II, the manufacture resumed its activities and, in 1947, made its first woman's watch, starting its jewellery collections. The brand continues its innovations: in 1950 it launched the Extra fort (Extra strong) with a single button to start and stop the chronograph, in 1960 it launched devises with simultaneous date setting, in 1968 its chronometers performed 36.000 vibrations per hour, making them among the most precise in the world, in 1980 it is the first Swiss Watch company to re-introduced mechanical chronographs in the market. In 1987, Eberhard & Co celebrates its centenary.
1987 - NOW
Since 1996, the manufacture has decided to focus on luxury king-size wrist watches and launched a new Grande Taille (Super Size) collection. True to its history of technical challenges, Eberhard & Co launched in 1997 the 8 days "a manually winding mechanical watch that needs to be rewound every eight days only" thanks to a special winding device and, in 2001, it launched the Chrono 4 "the first chronograph in the history of watchmaking whose counters are arranged in one row". In 2007, the brand celebrated its 120th anniversary.

THE BRIEF HISTORY OF THE LUXURIOUS BAUME et MERCIER WATCHES

Baume et Mercier watches have a rich and storied tradition in Swiss watchmaking and are designed and crafted according to the strictest criteria and Swiss traditions. Baume et Mercier are at the forefront of luxury watch design. It all began in 1830 in the Swiss Jura, the heart of Swiss Watchmaking History. The contrast of the rigorous and precise Baume with the artistic and free thinking Mercier fused form and function for all time with the distinct Baume & Mercier timepiece. A one of a kind for all time.

In 1834, members of the Baume family founded the Societe Baume Feres, in the village of Les Bois, in the Swiss Jura. The Baumes had already been active in watchmaking for many years. At first, the priority went to enameled pocket watches. In 1844 Joseph Celestin Baume went to England to set up business relations there. Watches signed "Waterloo", "Diviko" and "Sirdar" opened distant markets in Australia and New Zealand. The family company gave convincing proof of its dedication to mechanical elegance and precision when one of its timepieces won the 1893 timing competitions at the Kew-Teddington Observatory with a score of 91.9 out of a possible 100. I

n 1912, William Baume met the watchmaker and jeweler Paul Mercier at the Geneva watch and jewellery shop in Haas. The meeting resulted in the signing of an agreement on 26 November 1918 for the establishment of Baume et Mercier in Geneva. This proved to be a very successful enterprise, and in 1921 they were awarded the coveted Poicon de Geneve, official recognition of flawless quality products. Watches dating from this period are now rare collectors pieces, worth thousands of dollars.

In 1937 William Baume withdrew from active business. He was followed into retirement by Paul Mercier, and the jeweler Constantin de Gorski joined the company accompanied by his master jewel-setter and male companion, Robert Peron.
After World War II Baume et Mercier concentrated on conventional men's watches, sports chronographs and ladies' jewellery watches.

In 1965 the Paiget family bought control over Baume et Mercier. One of the world's thinnest calendar watches with a mini rotor was produced under Piaget's aegis. In the same year the new owners switched to electronic tuning fork movement, and from 1970 increased investments in quartz movements. At the end of the 1983, Baume et Mercier temporarily ceased production of mechanical watches.

In 1988, Christian and Yves Piaget sold 60% of their stake to Piaget holding S.A., also selling Baume et Mercier S.A. to Cartier Monde S.A. in Paris. In 1993 the Cartier group became sole owners of both Piaget and Baume et Mercier.


In September 2004 Baume et Mercier opened a new production building in Les Brenets, Switzerland. For the past few years Baume et Mercier has sought to make a name for itself as a trendsetter. Fashionable models such as the "Riviera" and the "Hampton", named after the stylish resorts and high-society meeting places of the U.S East Coast, defined a new watch style. in the 1980s and 1990s, for both genders.

BRIEF INFORMATION ON LEMARQUAND SPACEMAN RETRO WRISTWATCH 

Andre LeMarquand is one of the biggest designers of the XXth century. His “Spaceman” is a cult item for all collectors. Designed as an astronaut helmet – a tribute to the first landing on the moon – it was shown to the public in 1972 at the famous Basel Fair by the Catena watch company. It was a hit almost like the Swatch 10 years later and as a unisex watch it was worn in the colorful 1970’s by men and women. The watch was so popular that even more known companies ordered them with their logo on the dial (Fortis, Jules Jurgensen, Zeno). Andre LeMarquand is until today creating his watches is his small family factory in Bulle, Switzerland and his shops are located in the USA, Arab Emirates and Russia. Read more about LeMarquand on the company website.

The Spaceman not only contains the highest grade 17j. or selfwinding 25j. AS movements but also the materials are very high quality. The case is made of durable light fibreglass which was used in the 1960/70’s almost exclusively in the spaceindustry. The strap is made of semi-leather durable material called Corfam® by Dupont, which was used on astronaut spacesuits. It’s almost like leather but is very strong yet remains elastic and comfortable. The movement has a detachable stem and is taken out through the glass, while the strap is held in the case with a chromeplated steel ring with a color mask
