2 fresh pictures of the Jaeger Lecoultre Service Hydrographique et Océanographique de la Marine ( SHOM ).
One of the treasures from my collection, this SHOM from the 40's.
A kind of sea snake, as this watch is extremely rare. If you do a search, you will see maybe one or two for sale in these last 8 years.
This one is the Nr 12, with the correct dial " Fabriqué en Suisse ".
It lived a hard life, obviously, but it is full of charm, soul and History.
