Steel Jaeger-LeCoultre vintage wristwatch, circa 1949
A stainless steel mid-sized wristwatch with copper coloured dial
This stylish Jaeger-LeCoultre wristwatch has a very attractive copper-coloured dial with raised Arabic numerals and finely engine-turned subsidiary seconds dial. The dial is in attractive original condition with light and even oxidation to the surface. The two-piece steel case has a softer, more rounded design than the more angular Jaeger-LeCoultre dress watches of the 1950s and 1960s.
