LeCoultre ‘staybrite’ steel pocket watch circa 1934
A steel manually wound open-faced keyless lever pocket watch with black dial
A beautiful Art Deco model, this pocket watch has a wonderful black dial with dramatically contrasting copper coloured tracking and Arabic hour indexes. The hands are also coloured to match. The dial is in excellent condition and a small white painted dot has been applied beneath the 12 o’clock position, presumably as a highlight reference point. The steel case retains good definition with light scuffs and scratches.
