-Description

Jaeger-LeCoultre was founded in 1833 in the Joux Valley, Switzerland, known as the "Valley of Complicated Watches".

It is known as a "true manufacture", producing and assembling all components in its own workshops, known as the "Grande Maison".

It has a history of supplying movements to Patek Philippe, Audemars Piguet, and Vacheron Constantin, and its technology stands out among many watch manufacturers.

Reference E2643 is a diver chronograph watch released in the 1960s.

It was sold in the US under the LeCoultre name "Shark Deep Sea" and in Europe under the Jaeger-LeCoultre name "Vogue Chronograph".

The case size is 40mm, but it actually feels a little smaller due to the thick bezel design.The lugs are also thicker.

The bezel is marked with both 60-minute and 12-hour graduations. 
The dial is a matte black dial with Arabic numerals index, like a pilot's chronograph.

The design of the most E2643 chronograph watches are basically design called as "reverse panda" with white subdial and with bar index.

It is very rare to find an E2643 with a black subdial and Arabic numerals index like this one.
The hands also have a very unique design, like injection needles.

The luminous paint is tritium luminous on both the dial and hands, and has changed moderately over time. It is in very good condition considering its age with no major deterioration.

The movement is a hand-wound Valjoux 72. It is a column-wheel design, where each part is delicately controlled by a component called a column wheel.

It is one of the most famous movements in vintage chronographs and was used in models such as the Rolex Daytona and Heuer Autavia.

It is so rare and highly valuable that the movement alone trades for several thousand dollars.
