    Direct read and jump hour can be used interchangeably, though jump hours are also watches that have a dead beat hour. In other words the hour hand does not move from one hour to the next during the course of said hour. It will jump from 10:00 to 11:00 immmediately after 10:59:59.\


    No, I do not have a picture of my Sears branded Direct Read watch. I got it in the late 70s and was not particularly interested in taking pictures of watches back then.
    Solve all your doubts through question mode.

      Grantag, no... I was joking that the first watch was sooo many years ago. The first I had was from the brand that had the John Cameron Swayze advertisements. The first I picked was a Jule Jurgensen I think. I remember my grandmother saying she would buy me a watch. I looked for about a month before making my decision.
      Ahhh righto . Ill have to go and research that watch now as i am intrigued.
