Of the many luxurious ladies watches Jaeger-LeCoultre manufactured during vintage times, the diamond bejeweled backwind models were the prestigious company's top-of-the-line offerings for women, often costing the equivalent of well over $10,000 in today's valuation.
Besides representing the state-of-the-art in miniaturization technology, they also possessed the greatest level of artistic refinement, concealing their winding crowns beneath the case back to avoid disrupting the watch's perfect purity and full symmetry.
The gorgeous ladies wristwatch featured in today's offering is a pleasing example of one of these watches. It has a refined elegance and is fully LeCoultre down to the hands, crown. The dial has been restored by one of the leading experts in North America and the case is in excellent condition.
The movement has just been cleaned and oiled and the watch comes fitted with a bracelet white gold and diamond bracelet, ready for immediate enjoyment.
Included with the purchase is a one-year C.O.T. warranty on the movement and its function and a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity.
