I was recently shown a LeCoultre chronograph, presumably from the 1930s (LeCoultre merged with Jaeger in 1937
and sold watches under the Jaeger-LeCoultre band from then on).
Can you help me identify this watch?
N.B.: I have seen a somewhat similar-looking LeCoultre from the 1940s on a dealer website here
. However, I am puzzled by the info given because (a) that model is reported by the (commercial) seller from the 1940s (i.e., after the Jaeger-LeCoultre merger) and (b) it is said to have a Valjoux 72 movement, and I believed that LeCoultre made its own movements.
Anybody who can shed light on this would be welcome.
