Long ago Jaeger-LeCoultre built their reputation as masters of watch design with iconic models like the Reverso. In vintage times the company carried on the tradition and crafted certain very distinctive watches for the less restrained U.S market.
Such is the case with this LeCoultre, one of the most desirable vintage dress models made by Jaeger-LeCoultre.
Named the "Lowell", its distinctive style really stands out, and it was one of Jaeger-LeCoultre's few watches made for the U.S market crafted out of 18K white gold instead of 14K gold, attesting to its exclusive top-tier position among the company's American watches.
Its strong and striking diamond dial matches the luxuriousness of its 18K white gold case!
It has just finished a true expertly done cosmetic restoration. It presents in beautiful condition.
Its case presents as better than near mint. And its dial has just been restored by one of the leading dial experts in North America.
One of our watchmakers has disassembled it down to its last screw and cleaned and oiled it. It is keeping very accurate time. Photos of the inside available upon request.
We also have an 18K JLC tang buckle that could be paired with it if you would like. Please inquire if you're interested.
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, a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, and a new timing certificate attesting to its performance.
A seldom-seen opportunity to own a fine JLC timepiece before it slips into someone's prized collection.
