CONDITION REPORT

The overall condition of this watch is impressively good. The dial has patinated to an even creamy color with just one discoloration mark at 10-11. The hands are totally original and untouched, still preserving the original radium this watch initially had (and so do the arabic numerals on the dial). The movement is an automatic bumper caliber 476 (the first JLC automatic caliber) that works smoothly. The lugs on this watch are something else: faceted and weirdly shaped, and make this watch unique.

Description

Jaeger-LeCoultre, one of the best watch manufacturers of all time, really did it this time.  It is not hard to believe that even brands such as Patek Philippe or Audemars Piguet used JLC’s legendary caliber 920 for some of their watches.

This watch, coming at 33.5mm, is a true representation of style and heritage. It features a bumper automatic movement which you can feel ‘bumping’ as you are walking.

This particular watch was an imported swiss watch to the French market. This can be seen by the signature ‘FAB. SUISSE’ (fabriquée suisse).

The sword hands are truly a work of art. Made of blued steel and filled with radium lume.

This watch is rare by itself, but condition-wise, it makes it even rarer. We haven’t seen a better example available in the market.
