    Considering the 20+ year old Jaeger-LeCoultre 140.8.87 Master Calendar.

    What should I ask the seller, and what in particular might be the issues precluding me from pulling the trigger on this model? I imagine it being an older watch with no history of service, and the cost could be significant when sent to their service center.

    Thanks!

    I would read all about this model, know it's shortcomings, common defects, how to identify fake from original. I would never buy a watch that has no paperwork/warranty. Also, given there was no servicing, would immediately take it to a service center. Ideally, overhaul should be performed within the 30 days you have with chrono24, so that you can return it if something is not right.

    a lot of vintage watches don't have box and papers. At that point in time, people did not consider the papers as valuable.

    I decided not to do it. The watch comes without any proof of recent service, and servicing a watch with multiple complications like this one would probably cost another $1500+, at least...
    Thank you for your advise!
