Jaeger LeCoultre Railroad Radium 1940s

The 1940s and 1950s are often considered to be the climax of dress watches and military watches. During this time, the manually-wound movements reached a new level of maturity in terms of reliability, precision and dimensions. This particular timepiece represents the military era of JLC watches.

 

The functional perfection of this Jaeger-LeCoultre is no surprise; it achieves an astounding degree of simplicity and precision, all in one timepiece. The luminous stainless steel case with slightly down turned lugs and Railroad dial in a Caramel tone with blue radium filled hands and arabic hour markers with radium lume complement each other beautifully.
