1950s Jaeger pulsometer oversized chronograph ref. 224105
The history of Jaeger-Lecoultre dates back to 1833, in the heart of the Vallée de Joux. During this period, the company has been at the origin of numerous timepieces and great horological achievements, such as the Reverso, the Memovox and the Geomatic.
Made in the 50s, this absolutely stunning timepiece is the cousin of the Universal Geneve Compax, produced under the same reference. Built in a strong 38mm screw-back case, this extremely rare chronograph relies on the famous 285 movement, produced by UG back then, here signed Jaeger.
The Jaeger 224105 are themselves very rare, so how qualify the scarcity of pulsometer dial equipped ones ? The production of these models were extremely low, so finding one is a challenge. This one is also in stunning condition, especially its dial, showing a delicate vertical brush. A highly collectible piece that we are very proud to bring to you today.
