Help please.

A friend of mine was over last night.

He was wearing the watch pictured below.

He knows nothing about it at all.

It is Stainless Steel and is about 36mm in diameter.

Can you identify the watch .. Any information would be of great help such as age, Model ref, What "Club" is and any other snippets of information.

Thanks in Advance.

JLC made case with non in-house movement...

... made by other Swiss manufacturers (mostly A. Schlid - but there were others).

These were made to compete with other Swiss generics and Seiko, in the late 1960's to early 1970's, just prior to the quartz revolution.

Not a bad watch, but not comparable to in-house JLC movements either. Some of the case designs are stylish in a 1970's sort-of way and you can find the occasional 18K case, as well.

Hope this helps,
