FSOT: Jaeger Le-Coultre Master Compressor Chronograph 2 - Ref 175.8.C1

$5,500 USD

Up for sale is my original grail and one of JLC's most unique offerings - the JLC Master Compressor Chronograph 2. Includes box and papers.

Purchased in 2012 at an AD, it comes with box and papers. I haven't serviced it since purchasing it, but it has been taken care of. That said, it was regularly worn to the office and it could do with a polish as there are a couple of nicks on the case from general use. You won't notice it when wearing though. Happy to send across an up-close video so there are no surprises. No marks on the crystal & the watch is keeping time.

One of the highlights of this watch is the JLC quick swap strap system, which allows you to change the strap in just a few seconds - I would sometimes change the strap for work and evening attire, so easy to do. This strap system is only found in the Extreme series. The original double stitch alligator leather strap is in excellent, near new condition as the watch was mostly worn with other straps.

The watch wears quite slim with the case thickness at 13mm and sits close to the wrist - I'd recommend watching the review here to get a sense of how it wears.

Preference is for an outright sale, but open to a direct trade or cash my way.
