    These are mysterious. What is the Pilgrim Electric Company? Which European Air Force commissioned them? You guys can't just drop your Jardurs in the WRUW without addressing these burning questions.

    Lou's a tef 960, mine is a later Bezelmeter ref 995 val 72 caliber 13 lignes, both supposingly sold on PX like every others Bezelmeters, so strong military pilot connection involved... and here you go ;) : http://www.jardur.com/history.html and on a french topic, but nothing google translate can't sort out : http://montresmecaniques.forumactif.com/t6504-jardur-les-experts-au-crachoir?highlight=jardur

    Additional informations from the Jardur website owner:

    "I have a few bits of information for you Jardur collectors.

    From 1937 to 1940, Jardur used both the Val 71 and the Val 72 movements. The Bezelmeter, model no 950, used the 71 Valjoux which included the oval pushers. Based on the lack of water protection, the 950 was labeled only as Shockproof.

    The Bezelmeter model no 960 contained the Val 72 which was labeled as Waterproof, Dustproof and Shockproof.
    In 1940 brochure Jardur also gave buyers the option to choose or incorporate other dials to suit an individual need. Unfortunately, Jardur only described or labeled this different dials with letters.

    A: Black radium dial with only the Degreemeter scale
    B: Black radium dial with all scales excluded.
    E: White radium dial with Telemeter and Tachometer scales. Also available with Tachometer scale only.
    F: White radium dial with all scales excluded.

    Between 1942 and 1945, Jardur changed the size and shape of their cases.
    Model number 995 S and G “Bezelmeters” were now available in “New Type Smaller and Thinner Case and Back” (Stainless and Gold).

    One of the most distinguishing changes one can see is viewing the lug designs. On the newer Jardur’s, the lugs seem to decline to a deeper angle towards the watch band pins. The cases are thinner as well. The hour and minute hands were also designed to be thinner, going away from the cathedral type hands. "

    Hope this helps :cool:

    Scott, you have to remind me where that little shop was. My son just got transferred to KC and I'll be there quite often. Oklahoma Joe's is in trouble!

    Nice watch, Man ! (We didn't say "Dude" in my day)

    Buck,
    The shop is in downtown Parkville, which is located right by the river on the north side.
    http://coolvintagewatches.com/

    The owner's name is John Putnam, nice guy. He has a lot of watch bands there as well.

    Plenty of good BBQ around try a new one each visit! If you like live music try BB's Lawnside BBQ.

    I'm not from the "dude" generation either man!
