Stunning 1996 Jaeger Reverso Taille (Large Size – 26 mm’s) 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 Jaeger le Coultre Reverso 270.8.62 dates from 1996 and has the original box and paperwork. The solid steel sliding case is in excellent condition with only the most minor signs of wear. The original Jaeger signed dial is untouched and again in excellent condition. It’s the large size version measuring 26 mm’s across, excluding the jaeger signed winding crown and 39 mm’s long including the lugs. We have added a new, high quality tan Hirsch ostrich skin strap (Hirsch make straps for Hirsch) and it has the original steel Jaeger signed deployment clasp.

Please note, in view of the age we cannot guarantee it’s fully waterproof – it’ll be fine in everyday wear with the odd splash but mustn’t be immersed in water

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.
