At the beginning of modern watchmaking is Jaeger-LeCoultre, the esteemed watch firm created and built by Antoine LeCoultre, whose tireless commitment to quality and innovation launched the advancement of fine timepieces as we know them.
The company's workmanship is so respected that esteemed Swiss watchmakers such as Patek Philippe and most of the world's top watch firms used Jaeger-LeCoultre movements to power some of their finest pieces.
Today's offering showcases this very fine and all-original vintage ladies LeCoultre watch in gorgeous original condition.
Crafted from solid 14K gold with a Florentine finish and bejeweled with six factory set diamonds, the case possesses a distinctive style. The bezel frames a diamond shaped dial and the case flows into a beautiful herringbone bracelet with the same Florentine finish as the case.
We were fortunate to acquire the watch in such amazingly well-preserved condition, appearing to have spent nearly all of its life safely stored away in its original boxes.
Its 14K gold and diamond LeCoultre case which has never been polished is just short of mint condition. Its untouched silver dial presents as mint to the naked eye with only very slight aging visible under magnification. And its fine, Jaeger-LeCoultre movement is pristine.
One of our watchmakers has disassembled it down to its last screw and cleaned and oiled it making it ready for immediate enjoyment. It is keeping very accurate time. The servicing was the watch's first since leaving the Jaeger-LeCoultre factory in Switzerland.
Accompanying the watch are its original boxes with box tag, paperwork, and manual.
Included with the purchase is a one-year C.O.T. international warranty on the movement and its function, a full-page custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, and a new timing certificate.
