Jaeger-LeCoultre Dating Mystery Watch
It is called a mysterious watch, not because it has an unknown special function or design, but because it adds a cover. Piaget and Cartier both have rich and mysterious watches. Most of them use similar methods to hide time under the cover and wait for the elegant ladies to explore. The size of the watch is only 24 millimeters, which is a very typical standard for women’s watches in the middle of the last century.
