Offered here a fantastic find!!! This is Jaeger LeCoultre Gran Sport reference 290.8.60 in stainless steel case and bracelet.
This watch was issued around year 2000. The Reverso line of Jaeger LeCOultre dates to 1930s.
As you se in the photos, the case allows the wearer to flip the dial side underneath for better protection of the front while engaging in sports or other activities.
The case measures 26.6 mm across by 30.6 mm or 43.3 mm when lugs are counted in.
This watch was issued without the diamonds you see here and it’s price was around $7900.
The one you see here was covered with 450 full cut diamonds. They range in size from the smallest 0.005 carats to 0.015 the largest. Total diamond weight 4.75 carats. These diamonds are of SI1 clarity and better and H,I in color. At wholesale price the diamonds alone account for about $1900!! Setting these diamonds would cost at least $1800!! These are prices a jewelry store would have to pay, your price would be higher for transforming a plain stainless steel JLC to this diamond covered one.
Setting diamonds in stainless steel is more difficult than setting them in gold because stainless steel is a harder metal and not as malleable. The work of the setter here is superb and only an expert would be able to tell that these diamonds were not set at the factory.
The dial is white with Arabic numerals and date aperture at 6 o’clock. The crystal looks to have been replaced. The watch has a crew in crown which has to be unscrew first before setting time and date. The date is quickset from the first crown position. This watch has a Jaeger LeCoultre automatic movement cal. 960R. The watch will currently fit a 7 inch wrist. Three of the links are left without the diamonds. We can have them set with diamonds at an additional cost of $250 per link. If additional links are needed they can be ordered from Jaeger LaCoultre or can sometime be found on E-Bay. The bracelet is 18 mm wide and has a double deployant clasp.
The model number is faintly visible on the back of the case at 6 o’clock side.
As the watch is some years old we do nor guarantee the water resistance. Please keep away from water or other liquids. Priced at $7000 Make Offer Text 702 526 8524
