The wristwatch showcased in today's offering is one of the desirable U.S. market dress models made by Jaeger-LeCoultre. Long ago Jaeger-LeCoultre built their reputation as masters of watch design. In vintage times the company carried on the tradition and crafted certain very distinctive watches for the less restrained American market. Such is the case with the wristwatch showcased in today's auction, an early example of one of the desirable U.S. market dress models made by Jaeger-LeCoultre. Officially named the Aristocrat, the uncommon watch is more commonly known among collectors as the "Grasshopper" and possesses elegant drama in spades. The parts of the watch are original down to the dial, hands, and crown, which is correctly unsigned. The case is in beautiful condition with no gold wear through, which is quite rare for this model. The striking two-tone dial which has different textures on the top and bottom halves was restored in vintage times. The two-tone effect shows up stronger in person than it does in the photos.
