Fellows exhibit rare Jaeger-LeCoultre from 1938


Fellows were exhibiting an early, rare Jaeger-LeCoultre perpetual calendar at SalonQP that will be sold at the auction house’s December watch sale.

The watch, which has an estimate of between £15,000 and £20,000, bears import marks for London 1938 and contains a Jaeger-LeCoultre-signed movement based on the 11U calibre used in early Reverso models. The Jaeger-LeCoultre brand name was first used in 1937.

It is thought that a watch of this complexity would have been a ‘significant undertaking’ at such an early stage of the brand’s existence and not part of its serial production.

Adrian Hailwood, Fellows director and watch specialist, said: “It is a privilege to continue to offer such exciting finds to the public. Rare watches such as the Jaeger-LeCoultre perpetual calendar shed more light into the lesser known parts of watchmaking history.”

The watch will go on sale at Fellows’ Watch Sale on December 1st.
