This SICURA/BREITLING Digital Direct-Read is a design of "windows within windows". The hour, minutes & date are displayed separately through windows. The Digital Jump Hour Watch is a product of the space-age era of the 1950s-1960s & was considered one of the most modern & contemporary analog approach to time-telling then (before the attack of the digital quartz)!

SICURA built a strong alliance with BREITLING when SICURA CEO, Ernest Schneider took over & redeemed BREITLING from its near dissolution in 1979.

Schneider's game changer was the introducion of 3 new models: the BREITLING Jupiter, Mars & Pluto chronographs - all designed under SICURA specifications. After this success, Schneider decided that the SICURA brand has more potential when fitted into the inner workings of BREITLING than by itself!
