This Jaeger LeCoutre is a fine example of an MOD issue WWW (Watch, Wrist, Waterproof) watch, circa 1944. The watch displays all the characteristics of the dirty dozen collections, including a sub dial at the 6 o'clock position for the seconds’ marker, luminous hands and the war department markings.

The original Chrome topped case has some scratching on the top lugs and a small abrasion to-wards the bottom lug near the watch glass on the bezel ring. The screw in case back is etched with the original WWW and war office arrow and serial numbers F 15824 and 286458.

The signed Jaeger LeCourtre matt black dial is in excellent and original condition. The sub dial at 6 o'clock displays the seconds, the luminous hands are showing small signs of patina but not as much as you would expect for a watch of this age and have aged to a beautiful pale green colour.

The famous Calibre 479 mechanical hand wound movement powers the watch, this 16-jewel movement is well known for its reliance and good timekeeping. Unlike other WWW watches this movement was made specifically for this JLC watch and therefore only around 10000 were produced. Not many have survived, particularly in such excellent condition.

The watch is presented for sale on a green khaki NATO strap but we can easily swap this if you prefer.

There are no box or original papers sold with this watch however it will be supplied with a VWS watchcase.
