HANDS Original


Purchased new in Geneva in 1965 by a french banker, the watch appears to have only been worn a few times, the caseback seemingly has only been opened three times for service and has been kept in impeccable condition including crisp caseback numbers on the outside of the case and the Jaeger Lecoultre plastic hang tag still present in the box as the day it left the factory.
