Re: Need help with Jaeger Lecoultre watch

Neither of those would be a "reference". 869948 is the case serial number. For the movement it's caliber K818/C and the other number you provided is the movement's serial number, but it seems to be missing a digit. Assuming it starts with 15, the watch dates to approx 1963.

Re: Replacement glass for an Aristocrat / Grasshopper

I haven't' seen any from conventional channels in years, so it's either eBay or you have one cut.

You can try googling the "GS watch crystal catalog" it might be listed in there, if you have the reference number the parts house may still have one lying around.

Re: Need help with Jaeger Lecoultre watch

Sorry your account was deleted by mistake. We had to do some spam clean up.

Re: Help with informations on thisJLC Geophysic Chronometer watch

Do not remove the seal. I'd wait for someone that is knowledgeable to handle this. If you'd like, email me to info@classicwatch.com and I can put you in contact with someone in France that is a specialist and won't take advantage of you.

How to set the Heuer Bund without risk of stem seperation

As we all now, the Heuer has a one piece tub and this design requires a split stem i.e. the winding stem is in two pieces. If you pull hard enough, one piece will stay inside the movement and one piece will stay in your hand attached to the crown. There is also the potential of breaking the female p...

Re: Help with informations on thisJLC Geophysic Chronometer watch

The Eagle head will be on the outside back, maybe under the seal and on the side.

It's a fairly valuable watch, so do you research! i.e. don't send it to some random French watchmaker.

Re: Help with informations on thisJLC Geophysic Chronometer watch

This looks like a Geophysic made for the French market with a French made case. French made cases will have a small "Eagle head" hallmark stamped on the case somewhere. The value is less than a Swiss case, but still, it's a nice watch. If you are in France, and would like I can put you in contact wi...

In my view, that case has been replated.

Re: JLC Memovox K855 Dial concerns?
