to wear Gary, and probably favorite watches too. ..Its simply extraordinary in every single way ! Yowza !!!  cyclops

Quick question Gary, so LeCoultre was the name before Jaeger-LeCoultre? Like Heuer was before TAG Heuer?  WRUW Tuesday 3/30/21 803574

Here's what I found about the name:

From 1932 to approximately 1985, due to the Smoot Hawley Tariff Act, watches were cased in locally produced cases in North America and sold under the name LeCoultre by the company Vacheron-LeCoultre, a subsidiary of Longines-Wittnauer, with slightly different case designs. After 1985, Jaeger-LeCoultre was adopted uniformly worldwide. According to factory records, the last movement to be used in an American LeCoultre watch was shipped out of Le Sentier in 1976.

how we got to where we are with all these brands, and companies.
