Very Rare Jaeger Le-Coultre Calibre 476 Bumper Automatic c1948

  • This is a very fine example of a gents classic wristwatch made by the world renowned premier Swiss maker Jaeger-LeCoultre.

    The watch is the calibre 476 which was the very first automatic made by Jaeger- LeCoultre, as you can see it is in fabulous condition.

    A "bumper" is a vintage watch that has a "bumper" automatic movement rather than a full rotation rotor automatic. The oscillating weight makes a partial rotation before "bumping" into a cushioning spring.

    The dial is just stunning having been fully restored, it has its original hands and crown with the JLC logo on it.

    The case has been professionally polished so it is in superb condition.

    The case is water resistant.

    It comes complete with a high quality brown leather strap.

    As you would expect the watch is fully marked on the dial, movement and case.  It comes with a brand new high quality wooden presentation box.

    Jaeger-LeCoultre are one of the most exclusive watchmakers in the world and this watch certainly has that understated elegance that whispers class.

    The watch case measures 34mm in diameter not including the crown.

    Overall this watch is in wonderful condition and highly sought after by Jaeger-LeCoultre collectors indeed it looks as if it was rarely worn.
