Futurematic Porthole 18k
Description

For auction is a 1950's Jaeger-LeCoultre Futurematic 'Porthole' ref. E502 caliber 817 bumper power reserve automatic 37mm 18k yellow gold patina dial extremely rare. Famously nearly bankrupting the company it was the first automatic watch without a crown. Very 1950's in both form and function it was a very technically complicated watch for the era and in many ways ahead of its time. The E502 Porthole variation is the most rare (and that word is really correctly applied here, it is quite rare) and was also the largest of the series at 37mm. The stylized text is wonderful, so evocative of the optimism of the era. It is a rare opportunity to grab an extremely hard to find watch.
