The movement of the present watch, although unsigned, is of highest quality and very similar to a version of the famous "LeCoultre 19/20 RMCSQ" calibre.
Please note that this watch is a simple chronograph watch and not split seconds as stated in the printed version of the catalogue.
Veuillez noter que ce lot est une montre chronographe simple et non pas une rattrapante comme stipule dans la version imprimee du catalogue.
