Ok so I am not famous for my love of restored military watches however when I was offered this rare Jaeger le coultre WWW I was curious as the owner had been as true to the watch as possible and sent it back to the factory for them to service the movement and refurbish the case only, the dial remains original and unrestored and comes with supporting factory paperwork ,so I offer this unique piece as a watch that has the best of history and the advantage of being factory restored in 2011 for the cost of an average watch seen in other suppliers
The restored 35mm case is now fitted on a quality black leather strap
Stock number 338
