Here is a stunning, all original Jaeger-LeCoultre dress watch from 1970. The subtly brushed silver dial is in very fine condition, with a black script JLC logo and barely any marks. It has faceted steel bar hour markers, double at 12 o’clock. The baton hands are in very fine condition. Note that this watch does not have a seconds hand, in order to maintain a slim profile.

 

The stainless steel watch case with embedded lugs and the original crown is in fine condition with light overall wear, perhaps most prominent along the top of the case. The brushed stainless steel case back is in very fine condition, with a few marks of wear. The case does not appear to ever have been polished.

 

The watch comes on an after market fish scale Milanese steel bracelet of good quality.

 

Inside the watch, LeCoultre’s caliber 818/2 beats strongly and accurately to within about +-12 seconds per day. The watch was fully serviced in June 2024 and comes with a 12 month warranty on its proper mechanical functioning.

 

This is one of those iconic looking watches JLC is known for, a true dress watch that looks very elegant and subtle on the wrist. It is a watch that goes well with most occasions and is a great daily driver.

 

Our watches are delivered in a luxury wooden watch box, fully serviced with a 12 month warranty that covers the mechanical functioning of the watch under normal use. We offer 14 days full return rights and are very proud of our reputation for outstanding customer satisfaction.

 

NB! Note that we are based in Switzerland and that the buyer is responsible for any import fees their country may impose on a purchase from abroad. Ask us if you have any questions.
