Stand out from the crowd with this beautiful high quality Jeager LeCoultre manual winding wristwatch in typical 1940s style with original finish very attractive dial with all-Arabic hour numbers around the edge of the elegant minute track and signed "Jaeger Lecoultre Swiss" .It is worth noting that this same movement was purchased from Jaeger LeCoultre by Vacheron Constantin, which assigned it the calibre number P1008/BS and fitted it to its “Chronometre Royale” models of the 1940/50s. These change hands for several thousand pounds each and are immensely sought after by collectors, many of whom are probably unaware of the availability of the identical movement in its original Jaeger LeCoultre signed form. There was a very good article on the 478/C in the August 2003 issue of the Amercan magazine WatchTime in which it was stated that “the vintage P478/C numbers among Jaeger LeCoultre most beautiful movements”.
