SERVICE & REPAIR: Vintage LeCoultre Automatic with Power Reserve Indicator

Founded in 1833 by Antoine LeCoultre, Le Courltre is known for fine quality timepieces, and has engineered many complications over the years. This example, from the 1950s, is powered by the automatic calibre 481 with hand winding option and power reserve indicator. The bumper automatic, while not as efficient as a rotor automatic, is well designed. The dial and hands are original, and the movement had been well cared for and ran great after a complete disassembly service and minor repairs.
