1970s LeCoultre Master Mariner Automatic
Antoine LeCoultre created the LeCoultre brand in 1833, which originally created movement blanks or unfinished movements for some of Switzerland's most prestigious watchmaking houses such as Vacheron Constantin, Audemars Piguet, and Patek Philippe. LeCoultre merged with Jaeger in 1937 to form Jaeger-LeCoultre and went on to become the brand we know and love today, though until the 1980s Jaeger-LeCoultre reserved the name “Jaeger” only on their watches destined for the United States.
The Jaeger Master Mariner was created in celebration of the Jaeger brand's 125th anniversary and has taken on many shapes and variants over its production period, all featuring an aesthetic that married sophistication and utility in one.
