1948 Jaeger-LeCoultre Vintage Mens Watch, Rare Case, 14K Gold - The Pershing


Item No. AB 6

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 watch, one of our favorite vintage LeCoultre dress watch designs.

Named the Pershing, it exhibits the style and precision one expects from the 'Grande Maison'.

It is in pleasing restored condition. The solid 14K gold case presents nicely. The top has been restored and does not have any holes in the corners like is most often the case. The dial has been well-restored. And the movement is quite pristine.

Our watchmaker has cleaned and oiled the watch.

Included with the purchase is a 90-day C.O.T. warranty on the movement and its function, a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, and a new timing certificate.

This a special opportunity to own a fine JLC timepiece before it slips into someone's prized collection.
