Jaeger-LeCoultre Duoplan 26350
This LeCoultre Duoplan is the definition of a vintage timepiece, at over 80 years old the watch bears historical significance in the horology world. The piece dates from a period before the merging of Jaeger and LeCoultre and follows the design trends of the early wrist watches by being diminutive in size. Despite the watch’s age the engraving on the back is the most compelling feature of the timepiece, it reads, ‘To Jack Izod from Fred Perry, Wimbledon 1934-35, 36’. Arthur James ‘Jack’ Izod was a London tailor, who produced bespoke clothing pieces for the British Royal family, Fred Perry was one of the most iconic tennis players of all time. The pair are now perhaps best known for their eponymous clothing brands, Izod, and Fred Perry, both of which are known worldwide. The dates engraved on the timepiece, 1934-35, and ‘36 (which appears to have been added later) are the years that Fred Perry won the most iconic tennis competition in the world, Wimbledon. This timepiece represents not only a high-end gift between friends, but also a tangible link between two huge clothing brands. Fred Perry remains the only British tennis player to win all four Grand Slams and this, a contemporary timepiece with a direct link to his achievements, is surely an important piece of sporting memorabilia.
