Jaeger-LeCoultre 18K Gold Item #2630 SOLD
Here we have a truly stunning ALL ORIGINAL Jaeger-LeCoultre manual-wind wristwatch in SOLID 18K GOLD!
It's a good sized watch for the period (late 50’s – early 60’s) with the 18K gold case measuring 34.1mm across without the crown and 39.8mm from lug tip to lug tip. The high polish finish looks all original, stamped 18K inside and out. An original signed gold crown completes the look. The dial finish is also all original with applied, high polish gold/black hour markers. A set of matching gold hands with black centers tops it all off. Powering the watch is a Jaeger-LeCoultre in-house Caliber 885 movement with 17 jewels.
The watch comes fully restored including a new mainspring. During service, we completely disassembled the case and did some very light refinishing. It looked to us that we were the first ones to touch the case so we proceeded with great respect. After we were finished, the case was then ultrasonically cleaned. The watch comes looking great and running beautifully. We paired it with a handmade Italian lizard strap in black.
