Jaeger LeCoultre Teardrop 18k Railroad 1940s

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

The functional perfection of this Jaeger-LeCoultre is no surprise; it achieves an astounding degree of elegance and precision, all in one timepiece. The luminous yellow gold case with tear-drop lugs and slight pie-pan dial and Railroad Minute track complement each other beautifully. This watch is perfection.
