    Vintage Jaeger-LeCoultre

    Hello there! New to vintage watches fora.

    I found this vintage Jaeger-LeCoultre watch in a flea market in méxico, only that it's stainless steel. Do anybody know what model is it, or reference number? I would like to do some research before buying it.

    Thank's

    I think only JLC can answer your question.
    It looks to be about 40 to 50 years old?
    If you van remove the caseback you can take a pic of the movement. Much easier to date the watch.
    Has the crown got the JLC logo on it?
    It looks to be in a great condition, but please do not wind it up, as the movement needs a service, it can get damaged very quickly.
    The oils have possibly dried out, you see!
    A side pic, crown side, is useful too.

    That particular model you show in the picture is case reference #2285 in solid 18ct gold, and houses a caliber 800C. That style was made from the mid/late 50's into nearly the 70's. I would bet the stainless steel case is not the original one to hold that dial & movement - but we'd need to see the inside of the caseback to confirm it. Many times the gold is melted for scrap value and the movement is installed in a different case.

    I bought a JLC once which was described as stainless steel. It turned out to be gold! I was disappointed until I realised it was solid, even though it bears no hallmark.
