At the beginning of modern watchmaking is Jaeger-LeCoultre, the esteemed watch firm created and built by Antoine LeCoultre, whose tireless commitment to quality and innovation launched the advancement of fine timepieces as we know them. As a true 'manufacture' of timepieces, Jaeger-LeCoultre, perhaps more than any other watchmaker, sets the standard for luxury watchmaking.
The wristwatch featured in today's offer is as a wonderful example of why Jaeger-LeCoultre's vintage watches are sought-after by connoisseurs and anyone desiring to wear a wristwatch of true distinction.
From the handsome and dramatic solid gold case with its long claw lugs, to the striking, vintage dial and hand-finished Jaeger-LeCoultre movement, each part that went into this beautiful piece exhibits the quality one expects from the Grande Masion.
We were fortunate to acquire it. The signed and personalized Jaeger-LeCoultre case is near mint. The silver "Explorer style" dial shows only fairly light signs of aging. The slightly unusual Jaeger-LeCoultre movement is running true. (This movement, the Caliber 810/AW, was used in certain Calendar Disk watches where the date is advanced through the crown). We have timed the watch on a state-of-the-art computerized system. It continues to keep accurate time, running within a few seconds per day.

Jaeger-LeCoultre was founded in 1833 by the self-taught watch maker, Antoine LeCoultre in Le Sentier, Vaud Switzerland. The brand is considered one of the top luxury watch brands throughout the industry. They are credited with creating the first keyless system in 1847 that used a push piece lever to change from function to function. Between 1902-1932, Jaeger is credited with timepiece movements to one of the other leading luxury brands, Patek Philippe. Jaeger-LeCoultre is credited with creating complicated movements by machine dating back to 1870. The Reverso Collection, which is the brands most popular, was designed by Rene- Alfred Chauvot and patented on March 4, 1931.
