Jardur Degreemeter Chronograph
The Jardur Import Company was started by Samuel Klepper in New York City N.Y. in 1937. It was located at 874 Broadway in the McIntyre Building. In 1945, based on the production of various aviation and flight accessories, the company changed their names to the Jardur Aviation Company.
Jardur distributed its watches and navigational flight plotters exclusively to the military through post exchanges and ships stores, clear evidence that the Jardur watch company regarded their watches as professional tools.
Samuel was a pilot and the watches he designed were for a special class of users for whom the management of time was an important element of their profession.
With the rekindled brand, Jardur watches offer the rugged Val. 7750 cal. Swiss automatic movement, housed in a 43 mm stainless steel case with a screw down crown and fitted with a leather strap. Offered in a presentation box, limited to 66 pieces, this watch is certain to become a treasured timepiece by collectors, watch enthusiasts and pilots alike.
We at the Last Wind-Up are proud to be able to offer this first edition and have on hand the following serial numbers - 12-66 and 13-66.
