My Jlc Obsession Starts Here

Recommended Posts

Ever since my husband asked for a Cartier Santos I have been more and more interested in collecting watches. Every time I go to London I seem to end up staring into the windows in Bond Street or the Burlington Arcade.

I fixed on a steel Jaeger Lecoultre Reverso Duetto - sadly not the current model - and I've been on a quest to find one ever since, at a price point of $5-6000. I noticed that others start their collections at a modest price point so that might be the way forward. Any suggestions for a ladies' watch on a budget of £500 to start off with? I also like the look of the Cartier Tank Francaise but the new ones all seem to have a quartz mechanism and I think that detracts from their long term value.

I can't wear anything too heavy - a case size of 38mm x 23mm (like the Duetto) is about right for me.

Any ideas greatly appreciated as I'm spending far too much time searching for that high end Jaeger

have a look for a JLC Heraion-interesting "mechaquartz" movement- medium size about 36mm I think even get them with an alarm-solid gold capped not plated or filled ,vintage style look white pocelain look dial.-you should be able to get previously worn for £600 -£1000 quite easily, excellent talking point.

good luck on the hunt
