Vintage and Modern Jaeger Lecoultre

Vintage Jaeger Lecoultre, or Jaeger Lecoultre as it is referred to in Europe is a fine Swiss brand which has seen a great revival in recent years. While not recognized in the same class as Patek Philippe, Audemars Piguet, or Vacheron & Constantin, Lecoultre nevertheless is distinguished by high quality, great attention to design, and a number of noteworthy and exclusive features including Memovox Alarm models, the Reverso first introduced in the 1930’s for Polo players, the Power Reserve Futurmatic, as well as sporty chronographs and diver’s models for the sportsman. Vintage Lecoultre dress models include some of the most elaborate and sought after of case designs and dial treatments. We are strong advocates of the Lecoultre brand and feature the most desirable models from their many decades of wrist watch production.
