Steel Jaeger-LeCoultre vintage wristwatch, circa 1957
A handsome stainless steel manually wound centre seconds wristwatch
In almost unused condition, this is a stunning Jaeger-LeCoultre wristwatch with a case diameter of 35mm. The silvered dial has a wonderful lustre and applied hour indexes which are curved to fit flush with the dial’s surface. The stainless steel case is in unpolished condition with crisp angles and edges to both the upper case and the multi-faceted screw-down case back. Manually wound, the P800 Jaeger-LeCoultre movement is also in outstanding condition and has damascened finishing to the plates. The watch is fitted to its original leather strap which appears to be unused and is set with a steel Montal pin buckle.
