Hi Helen and a very warm welcome to WTF,
I am also a proud owner of a DeVille Jumping Hour.
I have done some research on this rare timepiece and was never able to find out the actual numbers that were produced. It wasn't a limited edition watch. However, it was only made for about one year so numbers will be more limited than normal. Omega produce more than 2000 watches per day so I would think that there are more than 2000 Jumping Hours out there. However, there are a few different versions including stainless steel and gold versions and bracelet and strap versions. So, maybe, just maybe, there is only about 2000 of your particular model.
As for value. I haven't got a clue. These are so rare that you are only the second other person I know that owns one, and I have searched the internet.
The 18ct gold version on a leather strap (the version I own, see below) was £2200 when it was sold new.
Sorry I couldn't be more helpful but you have a rarety there and as such information is limited.
May I ask if you have any other interesting timepieces?
Omegas production figures are for the calibre, not the modelWell there you go Helen.
Thanks for the info HewyBaby.
Was there 3713 of our model made or 3713 of the complete range of DeVille Jumping Hours?
If it's the latter that really is a very limited run.
Most Omega Limited Editions have more numbers than that produced.
My wife participates with me, sometimes willingly, sometimes not as willingly. When I wax rhapsodic regarding the technology of a particular calibre, she gently reminds me, that for her, "It's all about the jewelry". :thumbup1:may i ask another question?
do your wives or partners share your passion for watches?
thinking about it now most women i know are happy with one nice watch whereas a few males i know are avid collectors.
i suppose men's watches are generally more interesting... a couple of the ones i have are men's watches.
