You are viewing a very rare and noteworthy achievement to watchmaking. Not many of these watches have survived. At his price if you was to sell on in the near future do not think you can lose money. A fine investment opportunity into vintage Jaeger-LeCoultre watches.

The alarm is fully working. The watch measure at 38mm but feels like a bigger presence probably due to the crowns on the side case.

The Box is in super condition and on it's own is worth hundred of £ / € / $.

The paperwork / guarantee is blank but seems to match the time period and we have seen plenty over the years where the retailer at the time does not complete the guarantee at point of sale.

A new black strap of good quality has been added. If you prefer a dark brown strap instead please let us know shortly after checkout.

Naturally the watch is very old and expect some imperfections / aging on the dial as pictured. Priced to sell. No offers.
Background

As mid-century approached and lifestyle paces moved faster and faster, top Swiss firms needed a way to enhance the experiences of their now frequently traveling top clients and to help him better organize and govern his most precious possession - his time. In response to this need the engineers at Jaeger-LeCoultre created the alarm wristwatch in 1951.

The watches featured a fully mechanical alarm system. To pull off this difficult task, LeCoultre equipped these watches with significant inner alarm gearing and even an additional stem and crown, making elements of second movement that worked seamlessly in conjunction with the normal timing portion. It was quite an achievement to do this back in the 1950's. The automatic version was produced in the 1960's.

Supposedly the watch was a hit for folks who kept getting car parking tickets and needed an alarm watch to remind them how long they have left on their ticket !
