This galaxy mystery dial watch was created as a joined venture between two of the luxury watch communities most prestigious companies: Jaeger-LeCoultre and Vacheron Constantin. It is gently pre-owned from the 1960's and is in good condition as evidence by the close-up pictures of the actual watch. There are minor signs of wear on the case and the strap is not original. All of the functions work perfectly and the watch guaranteed 100% Authentic.
The case, crown, lugs, and push down back plate are made from 14K white gold. Beautiful diamonds are featured on the bezel and were custom set by a professional watchmaker. The mid size case measures 35mm in diameter without the crown or lugs (36mm with the crown x 40mm with the lugs) x 9mm in thickness. The case size indicates that it was designed for a man but can be worn by a woman. Meanwhile the black leather strap is aftermarket. It uses a tang clasp and can fit a wrist up to 8 inches.
The off white features original factory set diamonds that are used as hour markers. Hour and minute hands appear to be floating diamonds but in fact rotate around the dial and point to the markers. This display is a trademark of the collaboration between the two companies and is known as a mystery dial. How it works exactly is a mystery to all those who don't study horology.
Known as one of the greatest names in Swiss watch making, they were founded in Geneva, Switzerland in 1755 by Jean-Marc Vacheron. Rightfully so, it is the oldest fine watch manufacturer in the world with a rich history of fine craftsmanship. The founder, Vacheron was a talented craftsman in watch making. In 1770 his company created their first complication, and nine years later he designed the first engine-turned dial.
