Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Quartz 23303-42

classic design - excellent condition

This Jaeger-LeCoultre from the 1970s was one of the first battery-operated wristwatches.

The anthracite-colored dial of this Master Quartz features a buzzsaw pattern characteristic of the 1970s. The color gradients from the darker anthracite hue (top and bottom) to the lighter area in the centre of the dial give the watch an attractive look. The date at 3 o'clock can be quickly adjusted using the crown.

The movement of this JLC is the quartz calibre 352 developed by Girard Perregaux in the early 1970s. It is based on the Beta-21 from the 1960s, but offers a higher frequency of 32000 Hz compared to the 8000 Hz of the Beta-21 and was therefore more precise. But not only that, Girard-Perregaux has also managed to keep the height of the movement fairly low making it popular with other watch brands.
