1974 Waltham Jump Hour Chronograph

Rarely do you find a digital jumping hour chronograph, but this rare 1974 Waltham 1376 TDBK (also found by brands Tenor Dorly, Kelek, Sandoz, Elgin, and Precimax) is a rare bird by any name. Likely a face only a mother could love but I'd find myself willing to breast feed this one.

A direct reading chrono with no hands other than the stopwatch and seconds. A digital jump hour display for hours, minutes and date.One of a few 1970s bell-bottom chronographs that will be featured in my upcoming QP Magazine column, 'Watchismo's Timewarp'.
