A great era for watches of distinction for me is the 1945 to 1955 period when some of the most wonderful dress watches appeared and here Jaeger LeCoultre certainly fits this category
Watches & comment
Note the well proven ETA 2836-2 Swiss movement which has a Xemex modified drilled rotor.
It is one of the thinnest at only 1.95mm depth and I understand the philosophy follows on from their earlier 1979 “gold feather” 1.98mm quartz movement which Longines initially manufactured in partnership with Ebauche ETA/ETA.
I have to admit to being quite partial to the Junkers range of watches as they are well priced, very well engineered and in my experience extremely reliable too.
absolutely classic Bucherer styled case with brushed stainless front facings and contrasting Gold fluted sides curving gracefully towards integral lugs
A solid silver double fluted profile one piece case and signed crown give that retro Art Deco style favored by many of the rich and famous, many of whom sported an RK on their collective wrists over the years.
