Wimbledon-Furniture is delighted to offer for auction this stunning and very rare Limited Edition 0723/1500 Jager LeCoulter Grande Reverso 986 Duodate double sided wrist watch
Well, where to begin! I had wanted a double sided grand (much larger than normal) reverse for around 20 years, I finally got my hands on this absolute stunner a short while ago and its everything I could have ever wanted. I now have my eyes on a vintage Daytona so I’m freeing up some watches to balance the collection value
This is as mentioned a grand so large, its double sided so has two watches one on each side, there is a secondary seconds timber on the silver side and a secondary 24 hour night and day dial on the black side
The strap and clasp and all original, fully stamped everywhere, the serial number to the back of the watch is 2663080, the calibration number is 274.8.85 and as mentioned its edition 0723/1500
The condition is lovely, it will have very light fine very very very hard to see scratches here and there, it is a used watch, you would have to look through a loop to really see anything
The auction includes everything pictured and nothing else, so if you don’t see it its not included so please don’t ask, what we have is the owners manual, livret de garanite, serviceheft, certificate de garanite, inner and outer box, original cushion
