Vintage Ads: The Series – Part #3 Electronic

 By: blomman Mr Blue : July 3rd, 2011-02:15
Note: Due to technical problems I re-post this Part #3. Sorry for the inconvenience. Hello Vintage Jaeger-LeCoultre Lovers, After some R&R with friends I am back and ready with Part #3. During the 70’s and onwards, like most of the Swiss watch manufacture...  

My bad, Blomman. As I told you in my mail...

 By: amanico : July 3rd, 2011-02:19
I messed a bit when I edited your post to put it in the reference posts. I'm very sorry for the inconveniences, for you, and for all of us who answered to your post. Thanks for reposting! Best, Nicolas;

No problem, my friend!

Thank you for the reference post honour! Best Blomman

A bizarre periodin history in my opinion.

 By: grigo : July 3rd, 2011-02:38
I am glad it is behind us. The LED watch reminded me of a Texas Instruments watch that I used to own. Bad souvenirs from my perspective. Best regards, George

I'm thinking the same thing, George...

 By: amanico : July 3rd, 2011-02:49
But on another side, it is always great to learn things we didn't dig out, by an evident lack of interest, or taste. Best, Nicolas.

Good or bad…

 By: blomman Mr Blue : July 3rd, 2011-02:58
Well, basically I do agree with you! The look and feel of these watches is not for me… But if we only look at the technical part, it’s understandable! At that time new technology made it possible to make a more accurate watch to a cheaper cost. Of course ... 

It is all part of the history of the brand.

And as such is important to preserve and share. A great post Blomman. Best regards, George

Few nuggets in the Electic collection

 By: Marv : July 3rd, 2011-07:23
Hi Blomman, The electric watches or clocks are not my favorite family in the JLC universe. But there are some very nice objects, and it began before the 60s. For example, the beautiful mystery clock that you used in order to announce the series of article...  

I did not know that!

 By: blomman Mr Blue : July 3rd, 2011-10:35
Thank you very much for this piece of information, Marv! Never saw this one in real. Have you? Or you might even have it in your collection?! Best Blomman

The caseback logo

 By: nilomis : July 4th, 2011-03:16
Nicolas is so mad with quartz that he vanishes my post!!!! He he. Again: This is the caseback of my "Master Quartz". I keep imagine if this watch was a mechanical one. It could be a very cool 70's watch. Cheers...

I was teasing you

The one that never made a mess with computers can throw the first stone. Cheers my friend.

Thank you for chipping in again, Nilo!

I know for a fact that the Dark Lord is not totally against quartz… Best Blomman

Vlad put a dark spell on my Quartz

 By: nilomis : July 11th, 2011-14:36
First, I dropped the watch, face down, trashing the plastic crystal (yes, plastic shatters!). My watchmaker did his magic and the watch was saved. Next, I went to a presentation and the watch stopped!! I don't recall the last time that I experience a "wat... 

Vlad is stronger than Quartz. ;) [nt]

Some additional info on the Electronic

 By: blomman Mr Blue : July 11th, 2011-13:35
Here is another ad I found from the early 60’s. Note the ELECTRIC logo. Best Blomman...

They aren't the same thing. I wonder if JLC actually used to the terms accurately, it might tell us about what was inside the clocks and what regulated them. Did JLC ever make quartz movements? I thought they just bought in the modules... I understand why... 

My 70's quartz movement is made by G. P.

 By: nilomis : July 11th, 2011-17:46
If my research is correct. G. P. was a competitor, on the early quartz (in)glorious days, of the Beta consortium. Cheers

You're right.

 By: BDLJ : July 11th, 2011-20:39
....Sorry, I should have written JLC LED modules. That era would have been fascinating. A real race for accuracy.

Thank you for the info, Nilo! [nt]

I agree in your point of view of quartz.

 By: blomman Mr Blue : July 12th, 2011-14:23
And must confess that I know very little about the JLC Electric / Electronic / Quartz history… Best Blomman
