Jaeger LeCoultre Master Mariner with Gay Freres Bracelet. An all original Jaeger LeCoultre Master Mariner from 1968. The brand intended for this model to be for the sea fairing folk hence the Master Mariner.
The watch is housing the in house Jaeger LeCoultre Cal K883 Automatic movement. The watch has a fair amount of wear to the case from general use but nothing major. The watch comes with its original Gay Freres bracelet that is well used so quite stretched. The watch was given for years of service from a steel company Iscor for 35 years of service, hence the engraving on the back.
The watch is running but manually winding is a bit stiff. The watch is very unique with a two tone dial that shifts tones in difference angles of light. What else is unique is the name Jaeger LeCoultre at the 9 o'clock position instead of the conventional 12 o'clock position.This is a really unique piece for any Jaeger collector. The dial is near mint with slight spots and is very unique with a two tone dial, split by a vertical line down the center of the dial. The Hour, Minute and Seconds hands are silver in color with the Hour and Minute hands having luminous compound. The hour markers are silver in color. There is a date window at the 3 o'clock position. I do not guarantee that the watch is in any way water resistant and recommend keeping it away from water and activities such as showering, washing dishes, swimming, steaming etc. I will try to mention all details to the best of my ability. Please by all means ask me questions about the watch if you have any.
Watches that are mentioned to be serviced have had a basic service done. This is a cleaning, oiling and regulation of the watch in South Africa. If the watch is mechanical is it to be expected that the watch will either gain time or lose time up to 1 minute a day. Mechanical watches accuracy can be affected by many things, temperature, altitude, daily wear and is recommended that the watch gets regulated again in the customers country (at customers expense) to achieve the most accurate time.If youd like to use DHL, let me know and Ill change the price. If youd like a particular photo from a certain angle let me know and Ill add it. Once again, please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
