Its efficient mechanism, however, is cased with style and distinction. The LeCoultre Master Mariner is not a single watch but a series of watches. The creation of the Master Mariner celebrates the 125th Anniversary of the founding of the LeCoultre Watch Factory (in 1833) - a factory unlike any other in the world. For in it, every part of every LeCoultre watch is made in its entirety with unsurpassed precision." - Original LeCoultre advertisement circa 1958

This rare 1960 LeCoultre Master Mariner features a beautiful white dial with a brushed silver center and power reserve indicator at 12 o'clock. The power reserve disc rotates (increases) as the wearer winds the crown or shakes the watch. The sharp stainless steel case wears incredibly well on the wrist and slides effortlessly under the cuff of a dress shirt or blazer. If you're looking for a high-quality yet affordable vintage watch from a legendary brand in fantastic condition, look no further than this Master Mariner. Just keep in mind that the vast majority of LeCoultre Power Reserve models came in gold-filled/plated cases making this stainless steel Master Mariner all the more collectible and desirable.
