Here's the original dial LeCoultre Futurematic, a 1950s icon and a must for every collector!
Check out the satin dial, with light even patina, the slashing gold hands and those portholes at the 3 and the 9. The 3 indicates the power reserve; the 9 is a seconds hand.
Futurematic lived up to is name. No crown, the watch is set by a sliding and turning a disk on the caseback. So there's nothing to break up the sleek lines of the 10k gold-filled case, which is in excellent condition, with just light scratches and a few minor dings throughout.
Classic dimensions: 35mm across, by 42mm from lug to sculpted lug.
The bumper movement thumps nicely, keeps excellent time. I haven't opened the watch to check on which bumper movement it is, but could at buyer's request.
LeCoultre pioneered the power reserve watch and elevated it to an art.
Strap it on and watch heads swivel.
