Re: Vintage Jaeger-LeCoultre / Information Needed

If the JLC paperwork gave you a serial number I can date the watch.

Re: Vintage Jaeger-LeCoultre / Information Needed

The stamping on the back is the manufacturer of the case. I'm not sure off the top of my head who that is. I'll post if I run accross it.

Most USA market cases were made by U.S. case contractors, in particular when the cases were made of 14k or gold filled.

Re: Vintage Jaeger-LeCoultre / Information Needed

This appears to be it. "Diamond Royale" model. The catalog is from 1968, original retail without the bracelet was $295.00.

The catalog reference would be 20R.

Re: JLC E871 Crown and glass

I tried to find the crystal number for you, but I couldn't find my catalog. If you can find a .pdf online for the GS Catalog, it may be listed there, but TV shapes are always very difficult to source.

Sorry can't be of help. The crowns are unclear. I'd imagine 5.0-5.5mm is typical.

You're welcome; I have those as used parts if Perrin doesn't.

Re: Help dating Futurematic movements

The parts in question should be the same between 497 or 497/1....maybe ask Perrin why they'd be different, but I expect them to be the same.

Re: Help dating Futurematic movements

1951, 1953, 1953, 1954, 1954, 1956

That is when they were produced as a movement, which could be cased later.

Re: Memovox E855 Lapis Lazuli help needed

I tend to agree with the above post. Also no indication of SWISS or T on the original post on the watch dial?
