need help

Postby TPMV » Wed May 10, 2017 4:59 am

Dear Forum,

I recently acquired this Jaeger Lecoultre chrono. While I can find LeCoultre (US) model information, there's little on Jaeger LeCoultre model info on the net.

From what i can tell its a Valjoux 72 movement.

Can amyone tell me more, anything on this or non-US model vintage JLT chrono is appreciate.

I am taking it into my local JLT dealer for a service before the return date dead line.

Best

You can clearly see a color difference of the chronograph bridge with the rest of the movement. That movement was not born with that bridge and the dial is pure fantasy. In addition, the bridge in 99.9% of the cases is signed LeCoultre OR Jaeger. Not both.
