JUVET HISTORICAL CARVED HALL MARK

THE LEGEND OF JUVET HISTORY IN CHINA

In 1850, the China Qing Dynasty opened a number of ports to foreign trade.
At that time JUVET was already well established in China. In 1856, Edouard
Juvet of Switzerland began to produce the “Big Eight Pieces” pocket watches
specially designed for the China market.

about_title.jpg (94967 bytes)

a1.jpg (21928 bytes)

The first JUVET watch shop was established in Shanghai when in 1860, Edouard Juvet’s two sons, Ami Louis Juvet and Leo Juvet moved to Shanghai, China to manage the JUVET watch business.

 

history_07.jpg (64677 bytes)

During the time, JUVET watches were very successful in China’s flourishing watch market.
The Beijing and Tianjin JUVET branches were subsequently opened in the next two years.
JUVET pocket watches were finely handcrafted and their unique artistic style were welcomed
by the royal family members and nobles of the Qing Dynasty. Owning a JUVET pocket watch
is a symbol of nobility. JUVET has since become the emperor’s watch brand.

GSW IS OFFERING THIS SILVER BIG 8 MODEL

In 1872, Leo Juvet made this remark. It is suggested that JUVET pocket watches were a reputable
household name during the time.Most of the collections of antique JUVET are with private
collectors and China museums.

From 1921 to 1941 items made in JAPAN were required to be marked either “JAPAN” or “MADE IN JAPAN” . From 1942 to 1945 all Japanese goods were banned. The U.S. Customs Bureau decreed in 1949 that Japanese goods could be marked “OCCUPIED JAPAN”. “MADE IN OCCUPIED JAPAN”, “JAPAN” or “MADE IN JAPAN. In the 1950’s,technology improved and paper labels were allowed. The two most common types of labels were Small oval or rectangular blue or black paper with white letters. Two -color metallic, such as black or red with gold or silver lettering. The best items to collect are post-WWII “Made in Japan” pieces but the item should be quality with no damage– like the hard finish storage box above .

AFTER RESTORE
*************************************
KEY WIND KEY SET

THIS BEAUTY IS NOT ONLY AN
ENGLISH LEVER ESCAPEMENT
BUT A KEY WIND AND SET
WHICH PLACES THE DATE TO

1850/1870

IT IS LITERALLY WRAPPED IN ASIAN HISTORY
A YEAR WAS INVOLVED IN ITS RESTORATION

FROM 1675 TO 1720, ALMOST ALL POCKET WATCH MOVEMENTS WERE BASED ON THE VERGE ESCAPEMENT DEVELOPED FOR LARGE PUBLIC CLOCKS IN THE 14TH CENTURY.

THE VERGE CREATED A HIGH DEGREE OF FRICTION DUE TO IT’S MAKEUP AND THE LACK OF JEWELING TO PROTECT THE MOST IMPORTANT PARTS.

THESE MOVEMENTS RARELY ACHIEVED ANY STANDARD OF ACCURACY –OFTEN HAVING TO BE RESET OVER AND OVER EVERY DAY OR THEY WOULD RUN AN HOUR A DAY OR MORE OFF.

THE FIRST IMPROVEMENT WAS THE CYLINDER ESCAPEMENT DEVELOPED BY ABBE’ DE HAUTEFEUILLE EARLY IN THE 18TH CENTURY AND APPLIED BY ENGLISH MAKER GEORGE GRAHAM.TOWARDS THE END OF THE 18TH CENT [1700],

THE LEVER ESCAPEMENT WAS INVENTED BY THOMAS MUDGE IN 1759 AND PUT INTO LIMITED PRODUCTION BY A FEW MAKERS INCLUDING JOSIAH EMERY (A SWISS MAN BASED IN LONDON] and ABRAHAM LOUIS BREGUET . THIS DOMESTIC WATCH COULD KEEP TIME TO A MINUTE A DAY.

EVENTUALLY THREE TYPES OF LEVER ESCAPEMENTS, ONE AFTER THE OTHER, WOULD BECOME COMMON AFTER 1820.

WITH THE 3RD OR LAST, THE SWISS PALLET FORK LEVER, STILL UTILIZED IN MOST MECHANICAL WATCHES TODAY.

ESCAPEMENTS BY HISTORIC DEVELOPMENT

a-verge.jpg (3119 bytes)

1) IN THE BEGINNING THERE WAS THE: Verge –
the first escapement assembly utilized a escape wheel shaped like a crown, with pointed teeth that are vertical (perpendicular to the plane of the wheel) and interact with two pallets on the verge rod

cylinder-escapement.jpg (6662 bytes)
CLICK HERE -POP UP- TO SEE IN ACTION

2) THEN THERE WAS THE: Cylinder –
the escape wheel has even more complex teeth than the VERGE, and the teeth interact directly with the cylinder at the center of the balance wheel (instead of with pallets)


mudge-escapement.jpg (3570 bytes)

3)THEN THERE WAS THE FIRST DETACHED *LEVER ESCAPEMENT-
Thomas Mudge (1715 – 1794 ), an English horologist, invented the lever escapement, which was the greatest single watch making and time keeping improvement since the dawn of keeping time. Though Mr. Mudge designed this improvement, it was not until 1820 that the verge escapement, which was widely used in watches, began to decline because of another new LEVER design based on Mudge’s detached lever escapement, emerged in the English Midlands.

ENGLISH-LEVER-d.jpg (23595 bytes)

4) THE FIRST GENERATION SEMI MODERN *English Lever –
This new design, called the English lever, BECAME THEE ESCAPEMENT by 1840. the escape wheel has pointed teeth that are horizontal (parallel with the plane of the wheel) and interact with two pallets on the lever

* NOTE WE ARE NOT TALKING OR WRITING ABOUT THE CHEAP PIN LEVER ESCAPEMENT

4) THE MODERN DAY SWISS LEVER –
the escape wheel has club-shaped teeth that are horizontal and interact with two pallets on the lever. {Pallet fork)

**************************************

The English Lever Orient Pocket Watch

AROUND 1850, the general public began to prefer the lever to cylinder escapement . [I am not writing ABOUT PIN LEVER MOVEMENTS]. The English lever incorporated a major improvement over Mudge’s design. The design kept the fork away from the balance wheel until the pin returned to engage the fork better than Mudge’s design, this was the force necessary to prevent the fork from rotating, keeping it in its desired place.

The English lever has flat locking faces that lean forward by about 15º to allow the escape wheel to rotate forward by about 1º during lock. The roller jewel on the balance wheel then engages the fork to unlock the pallet, the escape wheel is pushed in the opposite direction, requiring little extra force to unlock. This draws the fork away from the balance wheel between engagements, ensuring consistent timekeeping.

THE HISTORY OF THIS AMAZING RARE
ENGLISH JEWELED LEVER POCKET WATCH

THE FACT IS THIS WATCH NOT ONLY HAS THE ANTIQUE ENGLISH LEVER, BUT IS A KEY WIND & SET POCKET WITH THE LAYOUT OF THE ACTUAL ENGLISH MADE POCKET CHRONOMETER WATCHES ABOVE.

THE ENGLISH WATCH INDUSTRY, FROM 1799 TO 1900, WAS WELL KNOWN AND HIGHLY RESPECTED. AN INDUSTRY LEADER PRODUCING SOME OF THE TOP CHRONOMETERS IN THE WORLD, EXPERIENCED A DECLINE IN THE MANUFACTURE OF PARTS AND MOVEMENTS THAT ENDED IN 1900. THOUGH MANY TOP GRADE WRIST WATCHES WOULD BE ERE DEVELOPED, INCLUDING THE BRITISH PATENTED HARWOOD AUTOMATIC [FIRST PRODUCTION AUTOMATIC EVER] BUMPER WRIST WATCH, THEY ALL UTILIZED THE SWISS PALLET FORK LEVER ESCAPEMENT–AND OTHER SWISS MADE EBAUCHES, PARTS AND CASES.

THE FIRST POCKET WATCHES WITH HAND MADE KEY WIND AND SET MOVEMENTS. WERE MANUFACTURED IN THE 16TH CENTURY AND LASTED TO AROUND 1875.

IMG_3643.JPG (144351 bytes)

The English lever escapement was used until the end of watch production in England, around 1900- caused by less expensive imports from the United States and Switzerland, and by the failure of English watchmakers to adapt to changing technologies and markets. Specifically the new Pallet Fork Escapement [CALLED THE SWISS LEVER] .

*****************************************

The Yangzhou riot of August 22–23, 1868 was a brief crisis in Anglo-Chinese relations during the late Qing Dynasty. The crisis was fomented by the gentry of Yangzhou who opposed the presence of foreign Christian missionaries in the city, who claimed that they were legally residing under the provisions of the Convention of Peking. Threats against the missionaries were circulated by large character posters placed around the city. Rumors followed that the foreigners were stealing babies and killing them to make medicine.Chinese were estimated at eight to ten thousand who assaulted the premise of the British China Inland Mission in Yangzhou by looting, burning and attacking the missionaries. No one was killed, however several of the missionaries were injured as they were forced to flee for their lives.
