Titus Jetpower Super 41 Jewels

The Power of Love ~ Jetpower

She is the lovely actress from Solvil et Titus "Time is Love" commercial for 2011 themed "These Three Years". She is not the exquisite beauty type... But is somewhat dutiful to protect her, comfort her, and adore her. Maybe is those sad beautiful eyes that could tell the story; the right proportion nose or the luscious lips that I'm just dying to kiss..... Had she smiled, the world would sigh with contentment. She totally stole my heart away and melt me with her performance in the commercial............

Get carry away whenever I think of Titus or Solvil et Titus, I think of her..... Is not about the power of Love here, is about Jetpower Super. This is a rarer variant of Jetpower Super. Most common one is registered with 77 Jewels. This is a more modest 41 Jewels. This watch is from the 1960's era and is probably from the beginning of the Jewels war, where every manufacturers were trying to claim higher number of Jewels in a simple movement. 

This is a 37mm in diameter stainless steel Titus automatic watch with day and date function. It has a dome shaped acrylic crystal top and a smooth bezel. How could I forget to take a shot of the crown...... The crown is signed with Titus and is of turbine shaped. From the look, it resemble Rolex Oyster.

This watch has a black dial with gold hour markers, and gold dauphne hands. The day window is curved and  is at 12 o'clock position, straight underneath the gold Titus emblem. The date window is at the missionary 3 o'clock position and is highlighted with a gold window frame. 

On the dial it is also stated "Automatic", "41 Jewels" and "Jetpower Super".

This watch came without the bracelet.... I have managed to fit an aftermarket Rolex Oyster bracelet on it and is able to find a Titus signed folding clasp to complete the picture. 

This watch has a screw in back case. The stainless steel back case is engraved with vital information as well as the Titus logo. One of the thing that caught my attention is the wording "Non-Magnetic"..... Hmmmmm is it the same as anti-magnetic???

This watch used the Felsa F-4008 movement. This movement comes in 17, 21 or 25 functional jewels. This is actually a 25 jewels F-4008, the same one that used in Titus Royal Time. The factory added extra 16 non-functional jewels just to look good on marketing stand point. 

The F-4008 has a slow beat rate of 18,000 bph and a power reserve of 43 hours. Just couldn't get over myself her beautiful face.....
