Pink Gold Jaeger-LeCoultre vintage wristwatch, circa 1948
A superb 18ct pink gold mid-sized manually wound wristwatch
This stunning, mid-sized Jaeger-LeCoultre wristwatch has a wonderfully rich 18ct pink gold case which has a beautiful coppery tone. There are handsome, splayed lugs and a slim recessed winding crown. The silvered dial has matching, raised pink Arabic and dot numerals and sword-shaped hands. In lovely original condition throughout, the case retains great definition and the dial has a wonderful lustre with very light and even oxidation to the surface. Manually wound, the movement is Jaeger-LeCoultre’s calibre P480 which the watchmaker first introduced in 1948, the same year as the present watch’s production.
This watch is fitted with a Christopher Clark for Black Bough handmade brown lizard leather watch strap and a pink metal buckle.
