    While going through some other bits and pieces today came across this JLC.
    Like the simplicity of the dial and that rail track.
    This is where I would appreciate some help.
    I would have assumed it was from the 40's with maybe the cal.450 but it all looks a bit to clean to my eyes.
    Am I away off track? If someone cares to put me right I would appreciate it and as always a rough price guide would help.
    Sorry was only able to snap one quick shot.

    I'm no expert but agree that it looks way too clean - at least a redial I'd think.

    Agreeing on a redial. SWISS MADE looks off.

    It most likely is a redial. Unless it was a gold dial, these don't age that well - even if left in the box since new in a dark place. There are a few correct dies for the Jaeger-LeCoultre font around so decent redials exist. A peek under a loupe will expose it I bet.

    The old adage - If it looks to good xxxxxxxxxx
    Thanks for the confirmation, tbh wish I had spotted the Swiss Made even allowing for camera angle it sure does look a bit off :thumbsup:
