There is something remarkably elegant and versatile about a simple white dialled, three register chronograph. With this Jaeger-LeCoultre Ref. E335, it certainly fits the bill, both with it’s good looks and high quality.
The LeCoultre E355 is all about the details that sets it apart. Beginning with its white dial with a two-tone of blue and black text, it is very legible alongside the precise sword hands. The case, stainless steel and large at 35.5mm has very stylised downturned lugs and a polished bezel.
Powered by the legendary Valjoux 72 movement, it was, during it’s time one of the most popular column wheeled ebauches, used most famously in the Rolex Daytona and Heuer Autavia.
This watch is incredibly easy to wear, working both as a casual and work watch- in my opinion one of the great everyday vintage watches.
