Re: JAEGER LE COULTRE caliber P478 Identification

Turned out nice! Good job.

A 370k movement serial dates it to 1945-46.

Re: JAEGER LE COULTRE caliber P478 Identification

Hi, I don't advise cleaning the dial. The odds of making it worse or removing print is very high.

Re: Cal.818 ?

Looks like a case reference 1951. I would need the serial number of the movement to date it, but 1960s is a good guess.

Re: Vintage JLC Chronograph Identification

It's one of the Jaeger chronographs made by Universal Geneve with a UG movement. Made late 1950s. I don't have more info that that.

Re: Any info on my hollow lug LeCoultre?

Caliber 480/CW, Made for the USA market, circa 1954. Dial is original, I don't know the model name. It would need to be found in an old catalog.

Re: European Futurematic with US case

That back does not belong on a European watch.

Re: Jaeger Le coultre club 1971

Can you post a photo of the movement? The Club movements were typically not made by JLC.

Re: LECOULTRE, MEMODATE, REF. 2744-I-910/911 14k Help dating watch

OK, it would be good if you started a new thread with pictures of your watch. The B tyically indicates that the top of the watch is not 18k gold. Usually chrome plate.
