StrappedUp, I’ve had it for about 5 years - this was my first vintage purchase. Usually, my wife wears it though.

For today - G-Shock protection

A very rare outing for my Jaeger le Coultre chronograph.... 36mm is just too small for my wrist :(
That's a beaut. Out of curiosity, what is the white hand for?

This evening, it's the "why I shouldn't be allowed on eBay after a few beers" watch. Actually, I quite like it. Image

Hi Ryan, the white hand is to set the alarm function, and it is a quality sounding fast beeper. I just wish it was 40mm because I’ve got quite thick wrists for a thin guy :(

Always good to see your Reverso Bjorn.

That exhibition back is something else.

Please excuse my ignorance, but is it a mechanical alarm?
The "beeper" part of your comment has thrown me.

It’s a mecha-quartz JLC calibre 633 where the battery element runs the alarm. I am not a fan of quartz personally but this movement is a different and intricate beast in the form of a combination of the two which holds an interesting place in the history of Swiss chronology.

For Ryan

Calibre 633 was a quartz watch movement with a mechanical chronograph developed by Jaeger-LeCoultre and also used by IWC.

Calibre 633 was a member of the Jaeger-LeCoultre Mechaquartz family. It was the most complicated movement in the family, with 27 jewels and an alarm function.

There are two motors in the calibre:

One powers the main timekeeping hands at a frequency of 1 Hz

A second powers the mechanical chronograph at 4 Hz

Since the chronograph is mechanical, it has the same feel as a conventional chronograph movement, including mechanical zero reset. Yet the Mechaquartz was much more compact than a conventional automatic chronograph movement.
