JLC Futurematic Porthole


This might be one of the most beautiful vintage JLC’s the company made… certainly one of the rarest! It’s a Futurematic in steel for the European market but the so called ‘Porthole’ model from 1956. The unpolished steel case measures 37mm and bears reference is E502. The original dial is in amazing condition with applied steel indexes and hands. The left ‘hole’ is the reserve indicator and right indicates the seconds. Movement is Cal. 817/1 and one adjusts the hands with the wheel on the case back. Attached is a crock strap with new JLC buckle. Super rare piece in minty unpolished condition.
