An Extraordinary Vintage Replica Jaeger-LeCoultre Perpetual Calendar WristWatches Goes Up At Auction

Jaeger-LeCoultre 1938 Perpetual Calendar

12/02/15 Update:  Fellows informs us, “Unfortunately the Watch Replica was withdrawn the evening before the sale due to a title dispute.”

Tomorrow, Fellows auction house will put this very special Jaeger-LeCoultre Watch Replica , made in 1938, up to the highest bidder.  Thanks to the great work by Revolution Online, we know that this is the first Watch Replica made under the Jaeger-LeCoultre name, which makes it a rather extraordinary piece of horological history (see link below).  This is one of those pieces that Jaeger-LeCoultre itself might want to acquire.

The estimate for this priceless timepiece is £15,000–£20,000 ($22,800 – $30,500) (Official lot details, right here), though for such a historically important piece I wonder if it might fetch more.  We’ll see.

I recommend Revo’s excellent story on this Jaeger-LeCoultre Watch Replica , which you can read right here.
