    Family heirloom help needed; 1970s vintage LeCoultre women's watch

    Hi all,
    I'm looking for any information at all on my mother's watch. She died 21 years ago but I recently found the watch in my Dad's belongings after his death.
    I recall loving this watch on my mother's wrist and now I can service it and give it to my wife. I'm super excited. And I even know the reference (their word is article number apparently)!
    But I don't know anything much else about it. Can't find pictures online (but took a few before it got sent to Switzerland). It'll cost staggering $ to fix, believe it or not. I'm pretty sure I'll do it.
    I know you can't give me value but if you know of any similar watches or an idea of the year of manufacture would help. (But apparently JLC can't!).

    I've been told the article number is JLGGJ98020

    Congratulations on your heirloom. All I can say is that such watches were commonly made all the way from the 1950s to the early 1970s so dating it will be a little difficult. "LeCoultre" were made for the US market (the Europeans were branded "Jaeger-LeCoultre") and frequently imported in parts and assembled in the US to reduce import tariffs. If it only needs a service, it should be a simple matter but it looks a little as if it needs a decent clean too. If you need parts, this might get rather difficult.....

    Good luck in your quest and let us see the result when it's finished please.
