This Jaeger travel clock is a charming relic of the early days of jet-set international travel. At a time when travel was equal parts glamour and adversity, this elegant travel clock would have been a valued companion.
Used as a desk or bedside clock by both ladies and gentlemen, one of the collectable’s key features is its capacity to open and close, allowing the clock to be protected during transport or stand up straight when rested on a flat surface. Designed for practical use, it features an alarm function which still functions, emitting a loud and crisp sound.
An improvement from previous executions from the 1920s which only featured a 2-day power reserve, this example features an 8-day power reserve, as indicated by the '8'signature at 6 o’clock. The calibre is manually-wound, operated through a crown at 6 o’clock, which is easily accessible. Concealed within the crown, the button for the alarm setting moves the alarm indicator backwards by 1 minute, with each activation. One would like to imagine that these were intentionally conceived by Jaeger in order to facilitate changing the time (and alarm), for example when crossing between timezones.
The dial is well-preserved, with the blued-steel cathedral hands and arabic numerals having developed a warm patina, which beautifully complements the cream dial. The black lizard outer-case is well preserved and contrasts with the lighter tones of the dial, enhancing the overall presence of the clock.
