1961 Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Mariner Vintage Mens 14K Gold Watch - Box & Booklet


Item No. 6842SH

Today's offering showcases this very fine and original Master Mariner with original box and booklet.

Designed for energetic men, the Master Mariner possessed the qualities of a timepiece demanded by men accustomed to taking action - it is rugged, elegant, waterproof, self-winding and exceptionally accurate, yet housed in a case that is timelessly classic and elegant.

We were fortunate to acquire this Master Mariner in such beautiful original condition. The classic and attractive one-piece gold case is near mint. The original "cross-hair" silver dial is just short of perfect mint. And the high-grade, automatic Jaeger-LeCoultre movement is running strong.

One of our watchmakers has disassembled it down to its last screw and cleaned and oiled it.

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. warranty on the movement and its function and a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity.

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. As a true 'manufacture of timepieces, Jaeger-LeCoultre, perhaps more than any other watchmaker, sets the standard for luxury watchmaking.

The company's workmanship is so respected that nearly all of the world's top watch firms including Patek Philippe used Jaeger-LeCoultre movements to power their wristwatches.
