Another magnificent dress watch made by Jaeger Le-Coultre 75 years ago. This elegant piece was made in the year 1943. When the majority of the world was in war, Switzerland kept their priorities straight and stayed neutral, so watchmakers like Jaeger-LeCoultre could continue to produce watches without any problems.And that definitely was for a reason! They produced this beautiful 36,5mm, stainless steel timepiece, running on a Jaeger-LeCoultre manual winding caliber P449/36. The watch features a charming gold-brown dial including a decentral second hand and a nice dark-brown, leather strap that is fitted between the amazing, distinguishing ‘Eagle beak lugs’.A sharp looking, probably unpolished, dress watch, perfect for the stylish and classic man. There’s no doubt about that.
Jaeger-LeCoultreThe watchmaking empire all started when Antoine LeCoultre created a machine to produce watch parts in the year 1833. After creating some very accurate measuring instruments in the following years LeCoultre teamed up with his son to build a place where they could put together all the expertise and instrument to build watches themselves. The first ‘Manufacture’ in the Vallee du Joux district was born!In 1903 the Parisian watchmaker Edmond Jaeger challenged Antoine LeCoultre’s grandson, who took over the company, to build a few calibers that Jaeger had invented. That worked out very well over the years and led to the founding of Jaeger-LeCoultre in 1937.
