Released in 1948, Jaeger-LeCoultre launched the Powermatic cal. 481 and it was the first wristwatch with a power reserve indicator, featuring 17 Jewels, 18000 A/h and 40 hours power reserve.
Notable for its complex faceted spider lugs named after the resemblance of the silhouette of an arachnid, the Jaeger-LeCoultre Powermatic was offered in a wide array of configurations.
The present example dated early 1950s is preserved in excellent condition. Offered in attractive condition and patina which propels its vintage appeal, this wristwatch is a fantastic opportunity for collectors to own a vintage icon.
