I don't think that this set should be broken up, although I might sell them individually. Jaeger-LeCoultre- Top-Tier since 1883: The Jaeger-LeCoultre Watch Co. Of Switzerland was established in Le Sentier, Valee de Joux in 1833 by Antoine LeCoultre.In 1844, he measured the micrometre? M for the first time and created the world's most precise measuring instrument, the millionometer, capable of measuring to thousandths of a millimetre. S millionometer was so important that it led to the adoption of the metric system by the entire Swiss watchwatching industry. Indeed, from the late 18th century to the early part of the 20th, there was a little bit of LeCoultre in most of the best Swiss watches. LeCoultre produced movement blanks for Patek Philippe, made entire watches for Cartier, and supplied Vacheron Constantin, IWC, Breguet, Omega, and Audmars Piguet with key components.
In 1851, he was awarded a gold medal for his work on timepiece precision and mechanization at the first Universal Exhibition in London. Within 30 years, LeCoultre had created more than 350 different timepiece calibers, of which 128 were equipped with chronograph functions and 99 withrepeater mechanisms. From 1902 and for the next 30 years, LeCoultre produced most of the movement blanks for Patek Philippe of Geneva. After 175 years it is still one of the most important manufacturers of ebauches (raw movements), and has supplied mechanisms to almost all the notable producers of luxury watches, including Vacheron & Constantin and Patek Philippe. Merging with the Alsatian watch factory of Edmond Jaeger in 1925, the name Jaeger LeCoultre soon appeared on wristwatch dials, including the world's most complicated wristwatch, the Hybris Mechanica à Grande Sonnerie with 26 complications.
In 1929, the two partners produced Calibre 101, the world? S smallest movement (then as now), with 74 parts that together weighed less than a gram. The company put the Calibre 101 in its 2 Ligne ladies wristwatch, which was diminutive and discreet enough to be worn by Queen Elizabeth II during her coronation. They are a watch collector? S watch and rank at the top of investment-grade timepieces.
A Great Gift Idea or an ABSOLUTE MUST-HAVE for any discerning collector! Note: box and papers NOT INCLUDED. I guarantee the watch will arrive in running condition, not DOA.
