Item No. 6648

Today's offering showcases this beautiful and large gents Jeager-LeCoultre in 18K gold. Our photos just couldn't do it justice.

At 36mm in diameter not including the crown and 45mm long, this big beauty fills out the wrist in a way most dress watches from the era don't. And its oversized dial make it wear even larger.

With a classic brushed silver dial, very elegant tear drop case, and superior caliber 12.5 lignes P449 movement with shock resistance, its showcases the quality and superior design one expects from JLC. The 12.5 ebauche served as the basis for JLC's esteemed first triple-date calendar watches and powered examples of the company's rugged W.W.W. military watches.

It is fully a European version JLC down to its dial, hands, and winding crown.

It large original 18K gold case is just short of mint. Its dial is bright and attractive, a very high quality previous restoration. And its high-grade handwound JLC movement is running very strong and true.

One of our watchmakers has disassembled it down to its last screw and cleaned and oiled and installed a brand new crystal.

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 C.O.T. international warranty on the movement and its function, a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, and a new timing certificate.
