Shot of the day: Jaeger-LeCoultre W.W.W.

Posted by

“The Dirty Dozen”… Not the movie, the watches – it’s time to show the Jaeger-LeCoultre W.W.W….

With a rough exterior as the WWW made for the British Army, its easy to mistake the Jaeger-LeCoultre as a “simple tool watch”…

The chromium plated brass case is often scratched or banged up after years of abuse in the fields…

Hard to see a link between “Horlogerie de Luxe” and this watch…

Jaeger-LeCoultre WWW – rough exterior

On the back we find the Broad arrow and the WWW – Watch Wrist Waterproof…

Jaeger-LeCoultre WWW – case back markings

Once inside, the connection to “Horlogerie de Luxe” is evident!

Jaeger-LeCoultre WWW – Calibre 479

The gilt movement, the Geneva bar decoration, the beautiful curves of the bridges, the refined bevels… Yes, the Calibre 479 is an absolutely stunning movement.
