Jaeger LeCoultre gilt brass vintage desk clock Ref.425, circa 1960
A gilt-brass keyless winding 8-day duration desk clock with date indication and original presentation box
A stylish desk timepiece, this Jaeger-LeCoultre clock is accompanied by its original presentation box which has a fitted interior, especially made to accommodate this model. The clock’s feet are asymmetrically arranged, that to the left is cone shaped, whilst the right-hand foot is cylindrical. The clear silvered dial has applied gilded batons at 12, 6 and 9 o’clock and there is an aperture for date at 3 o’clock. Powered by the calibre 228, this desk timepiece has a running reserve of 8 days meaning the clock only requires winding once per week. The date changes each day at midnight but a lever to the side of the movement at the back of the case allows manual adjustment when required.
