Haeger-LeCoultre Snowdrop Speed Beat


Recommended Posts

Hi Guy

 

i'm not going to profess knowing anything about watches. Recently my wife's granddad passed away and her granny asked me to have a look at some of his watches he had in his drawer.

There was the regular assortment of casios but one watch caught my attention and this is it:

On the silvery white face it has:

Jaeger-LeCoultre - Memovox Automatic

On the back it has:

SNOWDROP Speed Beat, HF 28800 E877 SATU

SerialNo 1229409

It isnt in Mint condition and can do with a little TLC.  The watch was well used until a few years ago.

My question is simple how would I go about getting this amazing old time peace some attention and secondly where would one go to have it valued.

Ill post some pictures when I have acces to a computer (currently on my phone)

thanks for your help

Regards

Jakes

welcome to the forum Jakes, nobody here will value your watch i am afraid, thats not what the forum is about, your best bet is to check out the completed listings on eBay for similar watches to get an idea of value, alternatively you could go to a specialist but there will most likely be a fee involved

hope that helps :thumbsup:

To be fair Bruce, he didn't ask the value he asked for advice on where to ask. You could take it to an auction house like Fellows for a valuation but eBay completed sales is the easiest place to get an idea. For the servicing, there are many reasonably priced independents such as Ryte Time, Genesis or Thewatchbloke who offer good work

so what was the problem with saying to try eBay for a valuation?  after all you said it too.

i welcomed the man which is more than anyone else has done :wink:

Thanks guys,

ive had a little look and well it seems like good examples of the watch is pretty pricey. The one we have had been used by a Civil Engineer in the 80's etc so it has a few scratches ill do a web search for decent watch servicing in my area.

i havent forgotten the pictures promise I will post them :)
