1943 Jaeger-LeCoultre Vintage Mens Midsize Rectangular Watch - 14K Gold


Item No. JH04

Today's offering showcases this elegantly styled midsize dress LeCoultre made during World War II. From the 14K gold case to the vintage styled silver dial, the watch has a clean and classic look.

As a mens midsize watch, it is well-suited for a man looking for a smaller watch or for a woman looking for something more full size.

Surprisingly, as we have owned numerous examples of this watch and they all appeared a clear yellow gold, the case has just a tint of rose colour to it, which we really like. It also has the earliest case number we can recall for one of these, perhaps accounting for the interesting difference.

Powering it is a high-grade LeCoultre caliber 11LO handwound movement.

The case is in excellent condition. The silver dial has been previously restored and is bright and clean. And the fine handwound Jaeger-LeCoultre movement is keeping time.

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 90-day warranty on the movement and its function, a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, and a new timing certificate.
