Jaeger LeCoultre Pocket Watch Wartime British RAF Year 1943
The black dial is completely original. This is a painted item, with a thin top coat over a sheet of copper. the composition of the paint in the first instance, the paint has contracted over the decades to a greater extent than its backing, resulting in a network of thin crazing over the entire dial surface.
Dial has a double minute track runs around the dial outer, enclosing very large stylised Arabic numerals. This dial absolutely screams 1930s and couldn’t be more of its era.
Hands original tulip shaped hands are present and correct, but as one would expect on any piece of this age, their luminous radium material has slightly deteriorated as a result of unavoidable chemical decay of its radium ingredient.
Movement  fifteen jewelled calibre 467/2 movement was entirely produced in-house by Jaeger Le Coultre in Le Sentier with no outsourced components whatsoever. The signature “Jaeger LeCoultre, Swiss Made” appears on the bridge, with the calibre number stamped next to the balance wheel.
Case back outer is stamped with the British military broad arrow mark, together with the letters “G.S.T.P F 013217”. The G.S.T.P initials represent the words “General Service Trade Pattern” with the remaining numbers and letters indicating the batch of which this particular watch formed part.
