Jaeger-LeCoultre steel vintage wristwatch, circa 1959
A stainless steel manually wound wristwatch
A superb, late 1950s wristwatch, this Jaeger-LeCoultre model is in lovely condition. The silvered dial has an excellent lustre and is set with applied Arabic and faceted triangular indexes. The stainless steel case retains crisp definition to its angles and edges, with a few light scuffs to the back. Manually wound, the watch is powered by a LeCoultre calibre P480 which is beautifully finished with decoratively damascened bridges.
