    Default Jules Racine & Co Stopwatch

    I would be interested in knowing how many different Swiss stopwatches are out there? I picked up a Jules Racine & Co "National Park" marked movement that is also seven jewels and three adjustments. The white porcelain dial is unmarked and there are no markings on the outside of the "National Park -Switzerland" marked hinged case. It has an ordinary three function crown: stopping, starting and resetting mechanism and the balance wheel is stopped when it is not running. Since there is no serial number, does any one have an idea of how to date this watch? I find info on Jules Racine being part of the "Gallet" watch company and not much else? Would this stopwatch have been used for timing high school or college track (or swimming) events?
    Thanks, Brad Maisto, President, Indiana Chapter 18

    Brad,

    I went to the archives and found this interesting tid-bit on Racine which I thought you might want to see. It doesn't answer your question, but it's a start.
