Jaeger LeCoultre's Cal 101 debuted in 1929 and it was and still is the smallest mechanical watch movement ever made. Due to the size, each movement is handcrafted and no two are identical. Queen Elizabeth II famously wore one of these watches on her coronation day. The present example has a tiny dial aperture with strong Art Deco styling cues integrated into a beautiful bracelet accented with baguette-cut diamonds.


Signed: JAEGER; Stamped: French hallmarks

Condition:

Dial is in near-mint condition. Case is excellent, with scratches throughout. Movement is not running at time of cataloging. Two diamonds are slightly chipped. Very minor scratches on metal surface. Overall, the present example is in excellent condition.


Any reference to condition in a condition report will not include a full description of condition, and for example, may not specify all faults, alteration, adaptation, mechanical replacements or imperfections to the movement, case, or dial. Colors and shades may look different online or in printed materials than they look on physical inspection, and images may not clearly show the condition of a lot. Prospective buyers should inspect each lot in person and make their own evaluation of the lot. They must understand that any statement made by Fortuna Auction LLC ("Fortuna") is merely a subjective, qualified statement and does not constitute a representation, warranty, or assumption of liability by Fortuna. All dimensions in catalog descriptions are approximate. No warranties are made that watches in water-resistant cases are currently water-resistant. Fortuna does not guarantee the authenticity of any individual component parts, such as wheels, hands, crowns, crystals, screws, bracelets or leather bands, since subsequent repairs and restoration work may have resulted in the replacement of original parts.



Pre-owned watches, unless still in original packaging or never worn, will likely have some degree of wear and scratches. This should be expected for many of the watches offered in auction. Even if a watch is running and keeping time, bidders and buyers should expect that all movements will require maintenance. Fortuna recommends that all successful buyers promptly take their watches to a professional watchmaker for evaluation.
