1957 Jaeger-LeCoultre / Vacheron & Constantin Vintage Galaxy Mystery Dial Watch - 14K White Gold & Diamonds

Jaeger-LeCoultre

Item No. 7291

When it comes to aesthetics, for some collectors topping the chart of the Jaeger-LeCoultre's special vintage wristwatches is the exquisite LeCoultre/Vacheron & Constantin Galaxy Mystery Dial.

Named after the way the hour marker mysteriously floats around the dial, seemingly unattached to the rest of the watch yet keeping perfect time, these exceptional wristwatches captivate the imagination.

Adding to its collector rarity, the Galaxy is the only watch in the world signed outwardly by both LeCoultre and Vacheron & Constantin (Vacheron & Constantin and Jaeger-LeCoultre shared the same distributorship in the U.S.).

This Galaxy is in beautiful original condition - even the crystal is original! Its dial is original and untouched in better than near mint condition. And its case is also better than near mint.

One of our watchmakers has disassembled it down to its last screw and cleaned and oiled it. It is beautifully near-pristine and running very true.

For the finishing touch we have equipped it with a new Teju lizard strap making it ready for immediate enjoyment.

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