Stunning 1940’s Oversize Jaeger le Coultre Sub-Second Gents Vintage Watch

The Overview

Founded in 1833, Jaeger Le Coultre have long been acknowledged as one of the premier watchmakers both in terms of their extremely high quality movements and their effortlessly elegant design. It was also interesting to read the recent Daily Telegraph article on vintage watches with the highest investment potential – Jaeger was given a special mention along with Rolex and Patek….

This beautiful and classically art-deco oversize wristwatch from the 1940’s encapsulates both these facets. The extremely rare oversize solid steel case is in excellent condition with only the most minor signs of wear. The very high grade Jaeger signed manual movement is in excellent condition and has just been fully serviced by my professional watchmaker. The original ivory/cream Jaeger signed sub-second dial has been professionally refinished to the highest possible standards and is deliciously elegant. The raised yellow gold Arabic hour numbers at the quarters with gold ‘dot’ hour batons in between along with the original rose gold hands create a classically art-deco look. To complete this beautifully elegant watch we have added a new, high quality black Hirsch and Sonning Vintage Watches crocodile skin strap with steel Hirsch buckle.

My asking price is below the value for a watch of this condition and rarity, particularly with the continual rise in value of vintage watches of this high quality. In view of the high grade Swiss movement, I will include a three month written guarantee on the movement, which is long enough for you to assess the working order.
