Jaeger-Le-Coultre – RAF- observer's pocket watch sold
Issued during WW2 who knows what this watch witnessed – add to that the undoubted quality of one the most highly regarded manufacturers and the fantastic condition.
The vast majority of these type of pocket watches from the second world war are engraved GS for general service this piece has the distinct advantage of being engraved 6E which marks this as specifically used by the RAF engineers.
This really is a collectors’ piece that also represents great value.
Ironically if this were a wristwatch used by the RAF during the same period and made by this most respected manufacturer and in this outstanding condition I think you would have to pay ten times the asking price of this piece.

2.Precision Please note that some of the pieces we handle are over 100 years old and do not perform like some modern watches. Part of the attraction is the requirement to hand wind many of these time pieces on a regular basis.
