£0.00GBP
vws0870cs

A classic, Ladies, Jaeger LeCoultre Reverso “Dame” in Steel on its original bracelet; a beautifully presented classic, Art Deco style watch with mechanical movement. The timeless face surrounded by its three emblematic gadroons (The case markings, top and bottom). This is the “Dame” model for ladies, and as such is typically 20mm wide by 33.5mm tall, which is not a very big by modern standards, but even so the white dial with black Arabic numerals is so very easy to read.

Presented on a stainless steel bracelet this watch wears as much like a piece of jewellery as it does a timepiece. Because of its “Reverso” design (the case can be turned over revealing a polished steel back) it is actually a solid watch that was originally designed to be worn while playing sports. The case backs on these pre-owned models are usually engraved but as you will see from our images, this one is not, should you wish to have it engraved as a presentation to a loved one or a colleague then this can be arranged!

As we can all hopefully agree; both men and women can admire the beauty of this piece that any lady would find this beautiful timepiece fitting for any occasion!

As we purchased this watch from the original owners family we know she was so fascinated by this watch when she first came across it at her local AD’s, she began saving up for some time before eventually purchasing the watch, brand new, in 1994.

Only warn at very special occasions or holidays, this elegant timepiece has been cherished and very well looked after. Later receiving a full service in November 2013 by Jaeger LeCoultre after which it was returned to the owner at the beginning of February 2014. Full details of this service will also provided to you upon purchase of the watch. Since that day the watch has barely been worn and the watch looks immaculate, really showing the love and appreciation this watch received!

The legendary story behind the origins of this reversing case dates back to the

1930’s, when Jaeger sought after a new balance between form and function, created to try withstanding the Polo matches of the British Army officers in India. Reversing the hinged case would protect the dial from damage while playing sports. This idea and design has continued to this day and was also adopted by some other manufacturers.

This watch comes with its original box, papers and booklets, also with a full service record from Jaeger LeCoultre. It also comes with spare links for the bracelet and a Jaeger pin tool.

All in all a well looked after and cherished watch by the previous owner, it is now for re-sale for the next person to cherish and enjoy.
