At the intersection of Art and Timekeeping resides a captivating vintage creation from Jaeger-LeCoultre.
When it comes to aesthetics, for many JLC collectors topping the chart of the company's special vintage wristwatches are the exquisite Diamond Mystérieuse watches. 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.
The Jaeger-LeCoultre Diamond Mystérieuse showcased in today's offering is an elegant and distinctive example of one of these special timepieces.
It is fully LeCoultre / JLC down to the dial and signed winding crown.
Its 14K white gold case is in excellent condition. Its dial is in excellent condition as well and has slightly warmed to a light sepia tone giving it a true vintage look. And its high-grade LeCoultre movement is near pristine and keeping very accurate time.
Photos of the inside available upon request.
It has been recently cleaned and oiled it, and we have installed a new-old-stock crystal.
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 international warranty on the movement and its function and a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity.
