Query about the C9 'Jumping Hour' Mk2 ....

Post by Laird » Tue Jul 23, 2019 3:12 pm

Would love to know - Is this the Model that had the hours 10,11 & 12 in Roman Numerals ?

2013 MkII is mentioned on the visible part of the CoA in this Pic ...

Thanks in anticipation - Laird

There's a decent selection of photos in the Reference Gallery, that will help you sort the differences between the MkI, MkII and MkII Jump Hours.

Looking at the picture posted, I'll agree the documents appear to be for a MkII but the watch is a MkIII.

Also the Grey Dial MkIII JH is not an LE of 250; it was a regular series watch. The MkII is an LE of 250, as mentioned on the letter of authenticity.


If this is from a Sales Listing somewhere, I'd be asking more questions.

The answer is in the photos in the Reference Gallery.

Go do that drilling.

MK1, MKII & some MK3 40mm White Dial.

Early model has exact the same size as MK1 but feel bigger due to dial. Later example changed to 22mm lug with so certain feel much bigger.

This is basically MK3 40mm white dial but have roman numerals instead. As far as I know, this example could be reference as C09 or CS9. Have been told this is a special edition but have no idea the total volume;

Very helpful - much appreciated.

LOL !

The Geezer has corrected the Title & narrative of his listing, and dropped the price - but the Pic remains the same - indicating in the CoA that its a Mark II LE - think I'll swerve that one !
