JLC Prototype Auction for Tides of Time (UPDATE)



From JLC For the third year in a row, Jaeger-LeCoultre put up an exclusive timepiece for the online Auction to raise funds for "Tides of Time": the Prototype N° 1 of the Memovox Tribute to Deep Sea, "LeCoultre Spécial Amérique 1959" commemorative edition, in tribute to the legend of diver’s watches.

The winning bid was £16'208. This collector will now have the pleasure of being the proud owner of this limited-series watch, belonging to Jaeger-LeCoultre's technical heritage, as the first diving watch ever to be equipped with an alarm and self-winding Calibre in a new size that reflects current trends.

100% of the proceeds from the online Auction will be donated to the Colombia’s Malpelo Fauna and Flora Sanctuary which has been on the UNESCO World Heritage List since 2006.
