Trying to find info on a vintage gold Jaeger Lecoultre

Postby VMV » Thu May 31, 2018 2:33 am

Hi everybody,

I've had this watch for a while, yet I got no details regarding it.
Would appreciate if anyone could shed some light on model name and year of manufacture.
The movement is p480/c.

Thanks,

I don't know the model name, it probably doesn't have one, it will have a case reference number. Probably late 1950s. I would need the serial number of the movement to date it.

Hi Zaf. Thanks for replying.
The movement number is 1119179 as can be seen in the picture.
however, the back is plain and doesn't have an engraving of a serial number. weird, isn't it?

Dates to 1956. 14k is a little unusual for this watch so I'm suspecting a contract case. What does the inside of the case say precisely? I'm having a hard time reading it.
