    Vintage Jaeger Le Coultre ladies watch - help with identifying movement

    I hope someone can help me. I have a vintage JLC watch and I'd love to know more about it. I was told it was 1939 but would love confirmation. The case is a very plain ( stainless steel) square art deco style and has the number 494972. The movement has the number 728320 or 726320. Any information would be very welcome.

    Thanks very much

    I do have some photos but am having a really difficult time posting them - they are on my iPad but I can't seem to attach them. Any suggestions

    Hi there,

    the movement was made in 1949, but how should we tell anything else without pics?

    Yes, posting pics does not come naturally to nubies...

    Essentially you upload a pic to a freeware photo viewer; I use photobucket.com. Then you 'post' the pic in your message using the image icon at the top of the editing screen. You paste in the URL of the pic on the photo viewer site. Then, when the post is viewed, the pic is displayed.

    The Photography Forum used to have a post detailing this process but trial and error works too!

    Even Kiwis can figure it out! LOL

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!
