1946 Jaeger LeCoultre Vintage Mens Watch, Waterproof, Military Style - Chrome & Stainless Steel


Item No. 5458

Today's offering showcases this very cool World War II era Jaeger-LeCoultre.

During World War II, while other watchmakers switched to inferior materials and sacrificed quality for the sake of cost, Jaeger LeCoultre refused to compromise, continuing to deliver very fine wristwatches. As a result, their War era wristwatches meet the same high standards of finishing as their pre- and farther post war vintage watches.

The dial is 100% original dial and very pleasing, done in a military style with large luminous Arabic markers and original luminous diamond hands. The original silver has warmed to a sepia, giving it a true vintage looks. The case top, known for heavy pitting in these watches, has been well re-plated giving it a very nice appeal on the wrist.

The caliber P478 Jaeger-LeCoultre movement has just been fully serviced by the leading Jaeger-LeCoultre expert in North America using new-old-stock parts.

Whether your battlefield is an important piece of ground or a business boardroom, this classic Jaeger-Lecoultre is sure to be enjoyed on the wrist.

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