LeCoultre Watch, Looking for Background

Postby Alan_K » Mon Feb 09, 2015 11:37 am

Hi all,

I recently inherited this watch, I know nothing of its history other than what I've recently learned researching online. Is there anyone that can tell me a little more about this attractive watch? Other than LeCoultre on the dial the only other mark appears to be along the edge next to the band, it's very hard to read. Any help would be very much appreciated. After many years in storage it's ticking away, keeping perfect time!

Hi, it's a "mystery dial" watch from the late 1950s made for the American market. It belongs to a series of watches that are named after celestial things. I think this particular model is called the "Saturn".

Thank you for the reply! I think it's a very unique watch, I especially like the band.
