This Jumping Hours 43040 takes inspiration from its Art Deco predecessors, imbuing it with a certain vintage, nostalgic aesthetic. A small window at 12 o'clock displays the hours, in a cursive, playful font. Meanwhile, an aperture runs around the whole circumference of the dial, allowing for a black pointer to indicate the correct minutes. When the hour changes, the disc at 12 o'clock satisfyingly jumps into place. The three-dimensionality of the dial creates some interesting effects when it interacts with the light at different angles, whilst on the wrist.
