1943 Jaeger-LeCoultre Vintage Mens Midsize Watch, Beautiful Case - 14K Gold

Jaeger-LeCoultre

Item No. 6609

Long ago Jaeger-LeCoultre built their reputation as masters of watch design. This commitment to stylistic excellence produced a number of exquisitely sculpted watches (like the Reverso), and the company's tradition for beautiful design continued to show-up in certain models of their later American market watches like this knot lug watch, one of our favorite vintage LeCoultre dress watch designs.

The early example of a knot lug LeCoultre showcased in today's offering exhibits the style and precision one expects from the 'Grande Maison'. The sculpted solid 14K gold case is good condition. The dial is a vintage restoration. And the movement is clean and running true.

One of our watchmakers has disassembled it down to its last screw and cleaned and oiled it.

For the finishing touch we have equipped it with a brand new crocodile strap making it ready for immediate enjoyment.

Included with the purchase is a one-year warranty on the movement and its function, a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, and a new timing certificate.
