A fine quality vintage men's Medco Jaquet & Girard Airvac 400 Swiss wristwatch.

"Funny How Time Slips Away" - why not savor it with this wonderful heirloom Chic Jaquet & Girard AirVac 400 20 Micron Gold Filled Men's Medco Autowind Watch

Ready to give. Ready to wear. This highly collectible rare watch is in outstanding condition.

Winds, sets and runs and keeps time as it should.

Swiss made Jaquet & Girard Airvac 400, automatic diver's super-compressor, a fine and hard to find watch.

This is an elegant and sophisticated men's Swiss Watch in a mid-century modern or what is sometimes called "Mad Men Era" style. Circa 1960s. Jaquet + Girard Watch Company, Bienne - Geneve, Suisse (Bienne - Geneva, Switzerland), traces its history back to 1744. The case and dial have a warm tone that is more toward what is called rose gold, so a bit warmer looking than yellow gold. The coppery tones are by no means "pink" they are much more subdued and elegant. A great look against the wrist.

The watch is easy to set and wind, and is keeping good time. The condition is very clean and crisp vintage (the slight patina shows less than in these photos).

- Medco model - highly collectible and desirable
- Autowind feature (means if you wear it regularly, fewer windings are necessary)
- Case is: Gold Filled G 20 J-G (signed between lugs)
- Gold tone dial
- Gold Tone Hands
- Raised gold tone baton markers at 3, 6, 9 1nd 12
- Raised gold tone square markers for remaining hours
- Sweep Second Hand
- Reads:
- MEDCO AUTOWIND below the 12 marker
- J-G Jaquet Girard AirVac 400, above the 6 marker.
- Nicely knurled original cross hatched crown
- Crystal has a small nick near the four marker, but is otherwise solid and clear.

The back of the watch has a figure of a hand vacuum sealing the watch and the J-G logo below for Jaquet and Girard, also reads: Vacumized Guaranteed 12 ATU AirVac 400 19814 Incabloc Stainless Steel Back Automatic Waterproof #13815.

Those features, combined with the rose-brown tones of the golden finish, the matching band, and the friendly price, make this a very attractive offering from delovelyness.

Furnished with a vintage Speidel Twist-o-flex band which may have been paired with the watch originally, when both were new, signed: 10K gold caps. Stainless steel back.

34mm diameter, excluding crown
38mm top to bottom including lugs
Fits average size man's wrist comfortably

Owning a Jaquet & Girard watch from Geneva is considered by watch connoisseurs as the ultimate fulfillment of their watch collecting desires. Because the quality watches, of which only a limited number produced, is due to a three hundred year old watchmaker experience, one that Switzerland may be proud of. Famous names characterize the Swiss watch industry. Jaquet & Girard watches carry two such names. The company’s legendary founder, Daniel Jeanrichard, pioneered the development of the watch making industry in the Neuchâtel Mountains in the late 17th century. He based his movements on the work of a certain Gaquet (Jaquet) who established his workshop in Geneva. From 1766 the Girard firm of watch makers, both in France and in Switzerland, specialized in fine watch movements, including Joseph Girard (1852) in Grenchen and Edward Girard (1877) in Montier. The firm is still a family firm; Jean Girard is a managing director.

Frequently asked questions about delovelyness

Vintage Watches take special care. They must be hand-wound everyday. They should be treated gently, kept away from water, and serviced by a professional watchmaker every 3-5 years. They should not be expected to be as large as or keep time as accurately as modern battery watches. I do have some vintage battery watches in the collection if you prefer that ease of ownership. Please take time to read all the information in the listing before you buy. A detailed set of instructions will be sent with your manual wind vintage watch.
