Stunning 1950s Oversize Solid 18ct Rose Gold Jaeger le Coultre Gents Vintage Watch. 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 encapsulates both these facets.
The solid 18ct rose gold case is in excellent condition with only the most minor signs of wear its very rare to find these in 18ct, as many as 95% were made in 9ct. The very high grade Fab Suisse Jaeger signed manual movement is in excellent condition and has just been fully serviced by my professional watchmaker. The original champagne/gold Jaeger signed dial is untouched we nearly always have to refinish dials as the condition is so poor. When a dial has aged this beautifully we leave it as is.
The finely applied rose gold spear head hour batons and Arabic hour numbers at the quarters along with the angular rose gold hands provide the most subtle contrast to the dial and blend perfectly with the gleaming case please see picture 6 for the colours of the batons and hands. To complete this elegant watch we have added a new, high quality dark brown Hirsch and Sonning Vintage Watches crocodile skin strap with gold plated 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 12 month written guarantee on the movement, which is long enough for you to assess the working order. The case measures 35 mm across, excluding the winding crown and 43 mm long including the lugs. The case number on the outside is 488818 A and the inside is signed L C (with the Jaeger fir tree) and it has the appropriate hallmarks for solid 18ct gold. The dial is signed Jaeger le Coultre & Swiss.
The dial is signed Jaeger le Coultre. We hold a Hirsch franchise and are able to supply any strap in their range. As with the majority of pre-owned watches that are 10 years or older, this particular watch does not come with its original box or paperwork. The watch is 100% genuine and rest assured we provide a lifetime guarantee on the authenticity and provenance of all the watches we sell.
