1940s Jaeger UG-285 35mm S.Steel Calatrava Chronograph
PRICE : ￥968,000 (including tax)
Jaeger LeCoultre, rare 35mm size, stainless steel, water-resistant, Calatrava-style bezel, snap-caseback, powered with Cal. 83, circa early 1940s.
The water-resistant case is called “Hermet”, which is a rarity in Calatrava designs, where 30mm sizes are more common. The silver dial, which has aged beautifully, is a simple yet contemporary design with a wonderfully vintage-inspired look that combines with the Calatrava case. The high practicality and the design that does not get tired of it without being too assertive, such as mounting the famous Cal.83, which represents the international small seconds, are the gems that can have an attachment that can be used for a long time. The back of the watch is engraved.
