Jaeger-LeCoultre steel vintage wristwatch, circa 1958
A stainless steel automatic wristwatch with crosshair subsidiary seconds
This Jaeger-LeCoultre wristwatch incorporates the company’s automatic calibre 812 movement which was first released in 1954. The movement is of ‘bumper’ type with a semi-circular oscillating weight which buffers off springs within the movement and is geared to wind the watch. The silvered dial has a handsome configuration which is typically LeCoultre in design and the watch is cased in stainless steel with a substantial screw-down case back. There are some oxidation spots to the dial and there are some small indentations to the tops of the lugs.
This watch is fitted with a Jaeger-LeCoulte steel pin buckle.
