Jaeger-LeCoultre gold vintage wristwatch, hallmarked 1958
A lady’s small 9ct yellow gold rear wound cocktail watch
In wonderful original condition, this watch appears to be almost unused. The silvered dial has an excellent lustre and is calibrated with raised, gilded, Arabic numerals. The 9ct gold case retains crisp definition with especially attractive, sphere-form lugs. Manually wound via the flat winding crown which is concealed to the outside case back, this watch is powered by LeCoultre’s calibre 496 which is beautifully finished with decoratively damascened bridges. The watch is fitted with what is almost certainly the original suede, cordette strap with gilt-metal clasp.
