Jaeger Le Coultre has remained a world leader in watches thanks to incredible innovations such as the Jaeger LeCoultre Reverso and the incredible Jaeger LeCoutlre Atmos clock which is powered by atmospheric temperature, and here is not only a very elegant watch, but one that has both the time set and wound via the crown under the watch case, which is known as a back-wind watch.
Made in the 1950's, this beautiful watch was made in 18 carat yellow gold and was designed with the most beautiful and elegant bracelet in a plaited design that not only looks so beautiful, but also wraps around the wrist with such a wonderful tactile feel to it. Measuring 17cm from end to end, this is such a comfortable watch to wear all the time, and is as much a bracelet as it is a watch.
The dial itself measures 11.2mm across and the section where the watch is set measures 23mm across, and the dial is very elegant with simple index markers as well as the 3, 6 and 9 numbers.
Turning the watch over reveals its true amazing feature - the crown to wind and set the watch. Being back wind allows for the crown to not interfere with the design of the watch and allows the plaited design to go around the outside of the watch without any interference to the style.
The movement has been completely serviced and comes with our twelve month warranty and there is little doubt that when this beautiful watch is worn, it will always get the admiration that it deserves.
