Lot 32: Starting price: € 3.000,- Estimate: € 8.000,-
Jaeger Le Coultre Master CompressorDiving Chronograph GMT Navy Seals with box and papers in as new condition. Limited edition of 500 pieces. A martial functional watch, with a direct name connection to an elite unit of the US Navy. Only at second glance does it become clear that Jaeger LeCoultre has not only been making watches with military pretensions since yesterday, or - better said - on behalf of various military forces. Here, the history goes back to the 1890s - and again, it was the US Navy that is directly connected to the brand (in 1900, purchase of a chronometer for the torpedo boat USS Cushing, which had originally been manufactured for the French Navy by Edmond Jaeger). ___________________________________________________________________ Please use the "Request now" button to submit your bid.

In favor of "Licht ins Dunkel" and "Pink Ribbon"
After last year's overwhelming success - we were able to pass on a total donation of €-237,900 to LICHT INS DUNKEL and PINK RIBBON - we want to set a special example again this year and make a special contribution to people who desperately need help in these difficult times! Our event this year will once again be dedicated to LICHT INS DUNKEL and Pink Ribbon (an initiative of the Austrian Cancer Aid) and our donations will be divided equally between these two important organizations.

Legendary watch movements
Founded in 1833 in the Vallée de Joux by the brothers Charles-Antoine and Ulysee LeCoultre, the brand was the first to scale watch production in the famous watchmaking valley of the Jura mountains and soon employed over 500 master watchmakers. They were well known for producing excellent movements and parts and supplied well-known brands such as Patek Philippe. Fascinated by the flat movements of the Frenchman Edmund Jaeger, the two Manufactures merged in 1937 and launched the Jaeger-LeCoultre success story.
