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 knot lug LeCoultre showcased in today's offering exhibits the style and precision one expects from the 'Grande Maison'.
It has been meticulously sympathetically restored and presents in beautiful condition down to its original winding crown.
Its sculpted solid 14K gold case is better than near mint. Its dial has been restored by one of the leading restoration experts in North America. And Its movement is very clean.
One of our watchmakers has disassembled it down to its last screw and cleaned and oiled it and installed a new mineral glass crystal to give the widest view of its beautiful face.
Please inquire if you would like photos of the inside.
For the finishing touch we have equipped it with a brand new Teju lizard strap making it ready for immediate enjoyment.
Included with the purchase is a one-year warranty on the movement and its function and a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity.
