This Van Cleef & Arpels is a magnificent timepiece. It is solid 18K yellow gold and features a sub-dial for both the date and a 2nd time zone. It also has a circular power reserve indicator on the dial as well.
The case has a sapphire window on the side where the Jaeger-LeCoultre movement is visible and the back features a generational calendar covered by a sapphire crystal. This allows the user to line up any year through 92 with the current month and view the full daily calendar for that month. It is a manual feature and not a complication to the movement.
The watch itself is in great shape. The case shows only minimal wear at a very close distance. There is a tiny scratch here or there, but none that are deep enough to be considered actual damage; only mild wear.
The band looks great cosmetically, particularly the outer portion although the leather has become quite soft over the years. The interior has some slight discoloration in certain spots.
The gold deployment clasp that featured an adjustable buckle was soldered closed by the previous owner. This means that the clasp must be cut open to size the band and soldered shut again. We are happy to size the band/clasp to anyone interested in purchasing the watch so that it fits the wrist when delivered.
The Jaeger-LeCoultre movement runs beautifully and keeps accurate time.
