    Confused Vintage LeCoultre Watch

    Hello, I need help identifying this watch... are you able to find ones online like this one? What kind of dial is this?

    Thanks for your help :)

    Not 100% sure, but looks to be recased. Too much crap on the back compared to similar aged models

    You would need to open it up to even check and see if a genuine movement, case signed etc.

    Hi Don! I just took off the back to see the movement... Here's a few pics... Serial number on movement: 200468, or the last two digits might be 88. K818/2 is also on the movement.

    Nice movement.

    Anything on the inside of the caseback? Would be signed

    Looks like a "franken" to me. Look at the missing movement screws. The gold case was once melted.

    Nothing inside of the caseback, looks like the caseback is not original...

    So, do you think the only original thing about the watch is the movement then? No original case, caseback or dial?

    Just by way of info on the movement, you'll probably know that it's a JLC 818 and you may find this old thread of some interest: https://forums.watchuseek.com/f11/jl...re-648164.html
