A 14 carat solid gold gentlemans' Master Mariner automatic watch manufactured in c1965 by Jaeger LeCoultre, one of the most prestigious watchmakers ever. It is in great overall condition, running strongly and keeping time. The Master Mariner is a highly sought after model within the Jaeger LeCoultre range but vintage models are rarely seen coming up for sale, particularly one with a solid gold case. So I was very pleased to acquire this watch. The automatic movement has a fully rotational bi directional rotor as opposed to a bumper movement seen in older Jaeger LeCoultre watches. The watch is fitted with a genuine crocodile calf strap and the crystal was replaced recently so this watch is redy to wear and enjoy. it is triple signed on the dial, case, crown and movement. If you are looking for a vintage high end watch that will pass as a carefully looked after watch of just a few years old, you absolutely must not let this watch pass you by.
Case: 14 carat solid gold with in very good condition, measuring approximately 33 mm across, excluding the after market crown and 40 mm from lug to lug. The inside of the case is signed "LeCoultre" and hallmarked as 14K solid gold as is the outside.
Dial: finished in satin champagne, in great condition bearing the Jaeger LeCoultre emblem and signed "LeCoultre Automatic Master Mariner". Hours are marked by applied gold coloured batons, the hands are in good shape and the crystal is clean and clear. The dial has been professionally restored in recent years.
Movement: 17 jewel automatic cal. K880 movement, signed “LeCoultre” running well and keeping time. As with most automatic watch mechanisms (the Jaeger LeCoultre Futurematic is one exception), the movement can be hand wound. It should be "kick started" when first used by manually winding the watch at least 20 turns.. As older automatics are not quite as efficient as modern day mechanisms, the watch may, need manual winding from time to time, depending on how much use and movement it receives when worn, in order to keep the power unit charged.
Strap: fitted with a lightly used long size genuine crocodile calf strap.
