1964 Jaeger-LeCoultre Vintage Mens Cal. 819 Waterproof Style Watch - 18K Gold


Item No. BF01

Today's offering showcases this very fine and classic mens Jaeger-LeCoultre in 18K gold.

From the timeless 18k gold water-resistant style case to the elegant silver dial with cool markers that are inset into the dial itself, it showcases classic sophistication throughout.

As fine on the inside as the outside, it is powered by Jaeger-LeCoultre's caliber K819 handwound movement, a seldom seen indirect sweep seconds version of the well-known K818. So advanced and well engineered is this exceptional caliber that its components were used by Vacheron & Constantin and Breguet (see comparative image of the two movements below).

Its original 18K gold JLC case presents beautifully on the wrist. While the case back has a few opening marks, on the wrist the case presents as better than near mint.

Its dial is untouched and mint and its high-grade movement is keeping time.

It comes equipped with a Swiss leather strap. Included with the purchase is a 90-day international warranty on the movement and its function, a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, and a new timing certificate attesting.
