Steel Jaeger-LeCoultre Ref. 1901 vintage wristwatch, circa 1965
An elegant and slim stainless steel manually wound circular wristwatch
This is a very stylish dress watch, dating to the mid 1960s. The slim stainless steel case houses LeCoultre’s thin calibre 818 which has a movement height of just 2.94mm and was first introduced in 1959. The satin finished silvered dial has incised polished baton numerals and the maker’s signature is handsomely arranged in place of the 3 o’clock marker, whilst the Jaeger-LeCoultre logo is applied below 12 o’clock. The watch is in very attractive overall condition; there is a small scratch to the dial parallel to the 2 o’clock marker but the dial is otherwise blemish free. The serial number to the outside of the case back remains clear and well defined. We have fitted the watch with a new, Hirsch, brown Lizard skin strap.
Jaeger-LeCoultre manually wound calibre 818 movement, lever escapement, mono-metallic balance, 18,000 BPH, Kif shock absorber; silvered satin finished dial, incised baton numerals; polished stainless steel two-piece case, chamfered bezel, snap-off back, Jaeger-LeCoultre winding crown; case, dial, movement and crown signed.
