1943 Jaeger LeCoultre mark VII
  Maker: Jaeger LeCoultre
  Model: 1943 Jaeger LeCoultre mark VII
   Case: 33mm
Solid brass with plating, steel blue hands and snap on back.
Jaeger LeCoultre would not compromise on the high quality of these timepieces making these WWII pilot watches more expensive than other comparable pilot watches of the period, subsequently not as many were ordered by the Air Ministry.
Why the dial is stamped 'LeCoultre' is open to debate, one suggestion is that old stock dials were used?
