It states online....

that it only covers the 12 JLC certified vintage watches (up to 1974) that they are currently advertising for sale in their Geneva boutique, and will subsequently send on a world tour.... Quite compelling approach, I do love the fact that they, and some o... 

A complete collection of the work in several volumes would have been a vibrant tribute to this brand... and would have fascinated us because we love details....

But today marketing is king and it must be convenient for the general public and at least for It's cool that they did it though...

True

You received one?

 
 By: amanico : January 25th, 2023-07:32

I've asked for one ;-)

 
 By: Alfihar : January 25th, 2023-07:58

Maybe... or not...

 
 By: Alfihar : January 25th, 2023-10:06

I am sure you will.

Absolutely awesome

I can't wait to see how their pre owned program is going to work

Looks interesting

There was an article in the FT about this www.ft.com Hopefully above link ok. Nice intro into vintage JLC. Cheers JML

God did it ;-)

That's all me... :)

 
 By: amanico : January 25th, 2023-10:54

Yeah I thought they looked a bit ambitious!

 
 By: jml_watches : January 25th, 2023-15:02
But then I guess you're getting a completely refurbished watch with great provenance, so that could appeal. Cheers JML

refurbishment

refurbishment services for vintage may have been around for some years, but not known/opened for everyone I guess. I have seen a sample of Geophysic swapped for NOS dial/crystal by JLC.

That might happen. ;)

 
 By: amanico : January 26th, 2023-18:52

I agree

 
 By: Alfihar : January 26th, 2023-06:40
And maybe some pieces were replaced… Best Ø

A very big problem indeed !

 
 By: leopold : January 26th, 2023-07:35

IF it is the case, yes.

It could be also considered that it is normal to change the forbidden radium 😬

 
 By: Alfihar : January 27th, 2023-04:16
Radium ist gefährlich und verboten If they want to repair or make a service to watch with radium or tritium… they need to decontaminate them… Biz mon ami

Out of curiosity…….

Can/will/should they authenticate Mark xi and other military JLCs? Confirming provenance of military watches is alway complex. Private collectors seem to be more knowledgeable on this.

It would be great... but not sure !
